The economy and its effect on our personal finances continues to change due to the coronavirus, so our shorter Friday episodes are here to stay! Our goal is to provide you with timely and relevant information you need to be aware of so you can be in control of your money. In this episode we cover how to manage decreased or non-existent income along with bills that need to be paid, whether now is a good time to invest in stocks, and what you need to know about unemployment benefits.
Additional resources from this episode:
- For parents at home with kids, check out the countless homeschooling bloggers out there as well as the some of the great resources by The Kennedy Center and Scholastic.
- We’re seeing some relief- interest won’t be charged on most student loans, the IRS has pushed back the payment due date if you owe taxes this year, and the federal government has extended unemployment benefits to those who have lost their jobs temporarily due to the coronavirus.
- And don’t be like this guy, instead continue to invest in low-cost widely diversified index funds and you’ll be golden.
