What are Structured Cash Settlements?

A Structured settlement is a simple thing really. A structured cash settlement is a series of payments you get over the course of time. For example, if you win a large amount of money by either the lottery or through gambling at a casino, you will generally have two options in which to get your winnings. The first way is getting your cash in one lump sum, although it will be less than the amount you actually won. Sometimes it will be considerably less than what you may think you are getting. Than Uncle Sam steps in to take their tax from it, which is always a huge amount and you are left with sometimes less than half of what you indeed thought you were winning.

Donating Your Car - Is Donating Your Car To Charity A Good Idea?

So you are driving along and you see the signs or the billboards talking about donating your car to charity. You may have wondered about this. Is it a good idea to donate your car to a charity? Well, if you only have one vehicle and you desperately need it to get you to work, then it probably is not a good idea to give it away, no matter how helpful you want to be. Being charitable is a wonderful thing to be but you will not be able to do much more after donating your only car and then losing your job because you can't get there, after all. But wait, maybe you have an alternate way of getting from A to B. If you have a bus route or enough money to pay for a cab each time you need to go out, maybe it is not such a bad idea after all.

Car Donations - Tax Benefits of Junk Car Donations

So you are thinking about donating your broken down car to a charity. One of the biggest plusses (aside from helping those in need of course) is getting a tax deduction for your generous offer. You may even be eligible to get thee full dollar amount that your vehicle would sell for be it a car, boat, or otherwise. Not only can you get the full value for your vehicle, but the charity you are donating to will as well. A while back you needed to figure out your best guess as to how much your vehicle is worth. This meant tax fraud was easy to go by. When the vehicle finally sold, the profits made from it was much lower than the estimate. The new law allowing you to get the full dollar amount law eliminates the problem and it even gets easier for you.

Can You Really Save 15% with Geico Car Insurance?

So I am sure you have all seen the commercials. Either we have John Krazinski (better known as Jim from The Office) telling us how we can save money on car insurance or we have some talking reptile with a British accent telling us how the other insurance company is crap. Sometimes the people in charge even have some sort of magic insurance agent appearing from nowhere when you spout the magic words "like a good neighbor," yadda yadda yadda. Do any of them prove their points, however? Specifically does the little British reptile?

Should You Bundle all of Your Insurance Plans Under One Insurance Company?

First of all, what does it mean to bundle all of your insurance plans under one company? To put it simply, it means to have one insurance company take care of all your needs. Whether it would be auto insurance, casualty insurance, health insurance, life insurance, and property insurance, they would all be taken care of under one provider. This may sound a little scary, with all of your needs being taken care of by one provider, it may seem like somewhat of a risk. In all actuality you can save yourself some big money if you decide to bundle all of your insurance plans under one company.

How Often Should You Update Your Insurance Policies?

It may be hard to know just how often you need to go back and take a look at your various insurance policies. How often should you update them? It is different depending on what kind of insurance you are talking about. Home insurance policies can be a tricky thing. Sometimes things change and new things can happen. Owning a home is quite a great thing but it also requires one heck of a lot of responsibility. The most important thing about finally owning your own home is being sure that it is insured properly and that you are taken care of the correct way. This means you will have to update it regularly of course. You will not necessarily have the benefit of keeping the same insurance policy as the one that you started out with. It is relatively simple to maintain your insurance policy but the big deal is understanding when it is time to update it.

How To Get The Best Credit Card Rates

Finding a credit card with the right rates for you can be tough. I will provide a few guidelines that may help in getting the best credit card rates that you can handle. On February twenty second 2010, the Card Accountability, Responsibility and Disclosure act (or Credit CARD) went into effect. The various companies that offer us credit cards often adjust their ways and practices to offer us good rates while still turning a profit for themselves. They do this to accommodate the new laws that are often passed such as the one I just discussed. With this constant change, it can be hard to find the credit card with the best possible rates for you, but not impossible. It is very wise to know how to find the best credit card rates in this constantly changing regime.

Can You Really Get a 0% Credit Card Rate?

If you strive to have a credit card rate with zero percent or a low interest the best way to go about it is having excellent credit. If you have bad credit, or no credit at all, it may be difficult in finding a credit card with zero percent or low percentage rates. If you do manage this, a credit card with zero percent or low credit rate can save you money on buying regularly when they are carried over as credit card balances. They can also save you lots of money on balance transfers as well. Another good reason to seek a credit card with zero percent or low percentage rates is to simply show that you have a great credit score. If you have been doing well for yourself and indeed have a good credit score, than you deserve something for your efforts after all.
