WASHINGTON (8/13/10)--Sunday's Home and Family Finance Radio program presents advice about insurance coverage for young singles, how to save at any age, ways to build good credit to achieve goals such as buying a car or a home, and how to complain to get results from an unsatisfactory transaction. The show, which you also can hear later via the Internet, features Paul Berry, Washington, D.C., journalist and broadcaster, discussing these topics with special guests:
* “Insurance Coverage Single People Should Consider.” Loretta Worters, vice president communications, Insurance Information Institute, New York, covers what 30-somethings need to know about auto, home, life, health, disability, and long-term care insurance, and what affects cost and availability for this stage of life. * “How to Save at Any Age: Tips for People in Their 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s+.” Bill Losey, certified financial planner, senior adviser, and retirement coach, Wilton, N.Y., reviews savings targets for each decade leading to retirement and explains why--given longer life expectancies and the economy--saving should begin as early as possible. * “The ABCs of Building Credit.” Gail Cunningham, vice president public relations, National Foundation for Credit Counseling, Silver Spring, Md., shares ways anyone, including recent college graduates, can build good credit to achieve their life dreams. * “Complain for Results.” Susan Tiffany, certified credit union financial counselor and director of consumer periodicals, Credit Union National Association (CUNA), Madison, Wis., outlines the steps consumers can take to achieve customer satisfaction when a deal, service, or purchase is unsatisfactory.
