HandFF Radio examines credit score rules
WASHINGTON (12/21/11)--Sunday's H&FF Radio program addresses new credit scoring rules, ways to save on college textbooks, credit restrictions for stay-at-home spouses, and "money types."

This is a rebroadcast of an earlier H&FF Radio program.

The show, which also can be heard later via the Internet, features Paul Berry, Washington, D.C., journalist and broadcaster, discussing these topics with special guests:

  • "New Rules on Credit Scoring Explained." Kim McGrigg, community manager, Money Management International, Denver, highlights key changes to credit scoring.
  • "11 Intelligent Ways to Save on Textbooks Without the Bookstore." Andrea Woroch, consumer savings expert, Santa Ana, Calif., shares ideas for saving money on textbooks--none of which include shopping at the college bookstore.
  • "New Credit Restrictions for Stay-at-Home Spouses." Michael Edwards, senior assistant general counsel, Credit Union National Association (CUNA), Washington, D.C., discusses new ability-to-pay requirements that could affect nonworking spouses.
  • "Crazy About Money: What Kind of Money Type Are You?" Dr. Maggie Baker, clinical psychologist, Philadelphia, explains how understanding your "money type" can help you create better financial habits.
Home & Family Finance is a resource center for personal finance information at CUNA. The radio show is sponsored by CO-OP Network, the national credit union ATM network; Cabot Creamery Cooperative, maker of award-winning cheddar; and the Defense Credit Union Council and member credit unions, serving those who serve the country worldwide.
