Study Reveals States With Most Debt

1932There may be sunny skies in Florida, but life isn’t all smooth sailing and frolicking on the beach. The state has one of the highest credit card debt burdens in the nation, according to a recent study.

In fact, the so-called “Sun Belt” includes four of the five states with the highest average consumer debt. In addition to Florida, there’s Texas, Georgia, and New Mexico. However, the state with the number one biggest credit card debt burden is far from sunny: it’s Alaska.

The study looked not only at average credit card debt, but also at median income state by state. So while Florida’s average credit card debt per consumer ranks only 18th in the United States, its lower median income put it on map for having one of the highest debt burdens. The median income in Florida ranks 41st among the 50 states.

Florida’s average credit card debt per cardholder is $5,603. If a person paid only the minimum due on that amount each month, it would take nearly 13 years to pay it off, and cost more than ...

Survey Shows People Are Optimistic About 2017 Income Potential

15As 2016 drew to a close, people felt mostly hopeful about their moneymaking ability in the coming year, according to a study by Allianz Life Insurance Company.

Allianz asked survey respondents a number of questions, including whether they felt the outcome of the US Presidential election was going to affect them financially, how stressed they felt compared with how they felt last year, what bad habits they indulged over the past year, and how likely they were to seek professional financial advice in 2017.

Looking to the future

Thirty-two percent of those surveyed said they felt optimistic about their earning potential in the near future. Fifty-five percent felt either positive or neutral about their financial outlook, and 23% said they don’t believe the election results will impact their finances one way or anot ...

Experts Advise Decluttering For a More Secure New Year

1920Being more organized is only one of the benefits of decluttering your space in the New Year. Security experts recommend tidying up in order to prevent becoming the victim of identity theft and fraud in the future.

Greg Johnson, District Manager of Shred-It in Boston, Massachusetts, says folks can protect themselves by getting rid of extra paperwork around their houses and offices. “By securely and properly disposing of old files, papers, and electronic devices, you are preventing personal identity theft and business information security breaches, both of which can be a devastating matter to deal with personally, professionally and financially.”

In Johnson’s city of Boston alone, there were 351 incidents of fraud and 137 complaints of identity theft for every 100,000 people in 2015, for a total of 16,630 fraud and 6,507 identity theft crimes in a year. That data comes from the Consumer Sentinel Network Data Book.
