    My dad had a stroke that cause memory loss. After several months, I was able to get him on disability. When he got his back pay, he spent it (over $20,000) at the "man's club". His mortgage goes unpaid, his car loan is behind, his medical insurance was dropped, etc. Now he spends every $ that...

    I do almost all banking online. I made 5 withdrawls (transfers) from savings to checking in January . I went online to check my accounts, (I do this every day) and noticed a 10.00 fee on my savings stating too many transactions. DH called the bank and they told him it was a new federal law...

    ~I want to close my local savings account and put the money in my online savings account. I can only think of two ways to do this quickly. One, close the account and take the cash or a cashier's check and drive 1/4 a mile to my checking account bank and deposit it there. My checking account...

    People don't really discuss what happened on September 15th or are not aware of it, but the entire US Economy and Banking system was a couple hours away from shutting down. I know there is usually only discussion on personal finances, but I think this would have impacted us all in a personal...

    There are actually some traders in the stock market who do not support the bailout/recovery plan. Some have come up with an idea that they think will work. It includes continuing the work of FDIC head Shelia Bair who has worked with banks this year to either increase capital or broker mergers...

    Many people don't consider the impact of their banking on the planet. Money you save with banks is invested in projects and businesses - and they may not have an environmental focus. I work with ShoreBank helping promote their high-yield savings account (3.50% APY - $1 minimum - no monthly fees...

    I was just wondering what your thoughts are on the online banking programs? I have to wonder with some banks offering it as a free service if it wouldn't be a real money saver. No postage, no running to the post office to mail things, no checks to write out or pay for. This is a FREE service...

    Do you bank on-line? I was leery of trying it at first, but now it seems like second nature. I like being able to check my balances at any time day or night, and I like being able to transfer money from one account to another. I especially like the bill pay. It saves me postage money, and is...

    I have set up my bank account TWICE online to automatically pay my bills, and for the second time, when I go back in, the pending payments are GONE! I had to go in and pay them manually, and now I'm just praying they'll make it! My monthly payment to the CC company seems to work o.k., but the...

    I'm totally oblivious to information about things like this and before I try to do this I'm wanting information so that I don't feel like an idiot haha. I was hoping to start a savings account for my son's college fund when he's older. CDs earn more interest than regular savings right? Does...

    How many people do their banking online? How much do you think you save by doing this (stamps)? I pay almost all my bills through my bank, except rent. For most it is an electronic transfer, and for the others they send out a check (medical payments - i pay weekly payments). I never forget to...

    This makes me somewhat nervous, but I will admit that I do pay several bills online. It's fast, convenient, and saves money on postage.
