Are millennials delusional? Half say they’ll cover the cost of college for their kids

first_imgLet’s start with some good news: The percent of parents saving for college is rising. In a new survey Fidelity Investments found that 69% of people with children under 18 were saving; that’s up from 64% last year. Another smart move? More than half of the savers are using tax-advantaged 529 accounts.Millennial parents, which Fidelity is defining as those born between 1981 and 1997, turn out to be the most aggressive with 74% reporting that they are saving for their kids’ college. Plus, 46% of them say they plan to cover the full cost of college for their children, compared to 35% of the broader group surveyed.It makes sense that this generation has an above-average desire to shield their offspring from the cost of college. Many of them have student debt themselves, including 56% of the 642 surveyed by Fidelity. This generation has been a part of, and even leaders of, a nationwide conversation about the downsides of indebtedness. In fact, a debate continues about whether student debt is causing delayed marriage, delayed home buying and delayed parenthood among young Americans. continue reading » 13SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

3 ways to save on auto insurance

first_imgIt’s not your imagination. Car insurance premiums have never been higher.According to TheZebra.com annual State of Auto Insurance Report, car insurance premiums are at an all-time high, with a national average annual premium of $1,427.Your rate depends mostly on where you live. Some U.S. cities have average annual premiums of more than $6,000.Insurance companies are also cracking down on distracted drivers. If you got a ticket for texting while driving, you can expect a 16% jump in premium. Run a red light? That will be a 22% premium hike.Don’t let the stats get you down.There are plenty of ways to shave anywhere from 8% to 17% off your premium without sacrificing your coverage.Here are three.Shop around: Loyalty may not always translate into greater savings. It’s worth looking into, especially if you haven’t compared offers in a few years. Just make sure the insurer you select is highly rated, so that great deal doesn’t end up costing you time and money after an accident.Ask about discounts: This is the time to pick up the phone and have a conversation about what discounts are available to you. Never filed a claim? Your teen have good grades or taken a drivers’ education course? Is there a discount if you recently raised your credit score? You may be surprised by what qualifies for discounts. Even membership in certain groups or clubs can drive down your premium. Also be sure to explore whether there are discounts for bundling other types of insurance like renters, homeowners or life together. It all adds up, so take the time to ask.Consider restructuring: Review your payments and deductible. TheZebra.com report found drivers can save up 10% when paying in full (either annually or every 6 months) and online. Raising your deductible to $1,000 can lead to savings of 11%. Just make sure you keep $1,000 in savings so you’re not stuck without a ride in the event of an accident. 43SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Myriam DiGiovanni After writing for Credit Union Times and The Financial Brand, Myriam DiGiovanni covers financial literacy for FinancialFeed.

Ed Walsh Trial: Sheriff DeMarco Recounts Attempts to Probe Conservative Chairman

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Suffolk County Sheriff Vincent DeMarco said his former correction lieutenant, Suffolk County Conservative Party Chairman Ed Walsh, was warned not to conduct political business on county time years before his arrest.Among the complaints lodged against Walsh were anonymous allegations that he was unprofessional and abusive, but neither those claims nor the accusation that the chairman was politicking at work resulted in disciplinary action, DeMarco testified Tuesday at Walsh’s theft and fraud trial at Central Islip federal court.“There were several instances where we did look to discipline Ed Walsh,” DeMarco said during the fourth day of the high-profile trial. “But we could not proceed with a disciplinary hearing in a couple of instances.”Prosecutors alleged that between 2011 and 2014 Walsh effectively stole more than $80,000 in salary for hours he was actually golfing, gambling at Foxwoods casino in Connecticut and conducting Conservative Party business. Attorneys for Walsh, who retired from the county sheriff’s department shortly before the trial began but not before he could collect his pension, have argued that Walsh was free to come and go as he pleased and make up the hours later.DeMarco, the highest-ranking elected Suffolk official who’s a Conservative Party member, conceded during cross examination that he too sometimes discussed politics while he was at work, especially during his re-election campaigns. But after one complaint that Walsh was conducting party business when he was supposed to be working at the county jail, DeMarco said he asked Suffolk County police and prosecutors for assistance investigating Walsh in 2012. Neither agency turned over any evidence, DeMarco testified.When prosecutors asked what happened to that probe, DeMarco told the jury, “I received a phone call from the district attorney.” His response prompted an objection from Walsh’s attorney, William Wexler. DeMarco testified Monday that the same thing had happened when Suffolk County District Attorney Thomas Spota and Suffolk County Attorney Dennis Brown rebuffed DeMarco’s requests to subpoena Walsh’s golf records before DeMarco turned to federal investigators for help. Spota previously issued a statement blaming DeMarco for thwarting the probe into Walsh.At another point during the sheriff’s testimony, Wexler had DeMarco review Walsh’s personnel file, which they noted had no complaints in it. The only reprimand Walsh ever got was when an undersheriff told Walsh to “cease and desist” politicking at work, DeMarco testified.DeMarco also told prosecutors that he received several requests years ago from constituents and a county legislator to investigate alleged improprieties in Walsh’s hiring at the sheriff’s office. That investigation also went nowhere.DeMarco said the investigation into Walsh’s work performance resumed in 2014 after he received new information that the Suffolk Conservative Party chairman was collecting a paycheck for time he spent out of the office while he claimed he was at work.After the sheriff’s two days of testimony concluded, witnesses who followed him Tuesday included deputy sheriffs, correction officers, Conservative Party officials and Richard Schaffer, who serves as Babylon Town Supervisor and Suffolk County Democratic Committee Chairman.When prosecutors asked Schaffer how he juggles both roles, he joked, “That’s a question my therapist has asked me.” Schaffer then listed about nine times between 2011 and 2014 when he met Walsh either at public events or at one-on-one meetings to discuss politics. The meetings ranged from breakfasts and lunches to evening fundraisers. Schaffer’s law partner, William Wexler, is Walsh’s defense attorney.Prosecutors estimate that they may rest their case as early as this week. The trial resumes Wednesday.last_img read more

Seaside location and character thrill keen buyers

first_imgThe home at 8 Josephine St, Redcliffe.A CHARACTER home east of Oxley Ave has sold a week before it was due to be auctioned. Selling agent Jenny Kunst, of Harcourts Sales Redcliffe, said the property at 8 Josephine St, Redcliffe, sold for an undisclosed amount to an excited couple keen to soak up the seaside lifestyle. “They’ve come from South Australia and they wanted to move to the Peninsula,” she said. “They just loved the house. They’re very excited — they’re delighted with their purchase.”Ms Kunst said the three-bedroom cottage with VJ walls, high ceilings and timber floors attracted strong interest during the marketing campaign. “Buyers were very interested in the location and the character,” she said.

It also has a separate studio, swimming pool and renovated bathroom. Ms Kunst said the seller was “over the moon” with the sale. The local agent said the Redcliffe market was experiencing a shortage of stock. “There is certainly a lack of supply at present but there are still buyers out there,” she said. “When properties do come up, provided they are marketed and priced correctly, they aren’t sitting on the market long at all.”last_img read more
