Friday episodes are all about the week’s news and the effects of Covid-19 on your personal finances. There are a lot of headlines out there, but we are distilling it down to specific takeaways that will allow you to not just weather this health and financial crisis, but to thrive. In this episode we cover a lot of good news we’ve come across in the past week. We also address how you might have the option to make changes to your health care coverage, how your credit score might drop due to the deferment of federal student loans, appealing for more student aid, and some benefits of graduating during a pandemic.
