Like a monster from a horror movie, your health insurance premiums just won’t stay down. Last year, the self-employed and others in the so-called “individual market” for private health insurance saw their premiums increase by as much as 50% or more.
They’re ba-ack! This year, they are up again. Insurance premiums for people who get their health insurance through MNSure and the individual market will see premium increases of as much as 50% to 67% and that’s assuming their current policy is even available next year.
I once found a $5 bill in my pocket when I put on a jacket I hadn’t worn in a long time. I was so excited I didn’t know what to do with myself. You would have thought I had won the lottery.
But who wouldn’t be excited? Nothing beats the thrill of finding missing money you didn’t even know you lost.
So imagine my reaction when I recently discovered that I had over $100 in unclaimed property!
Since my first financial aid post two weeks ago, several people have asked me some variation of the following question: “Mike, why should I complete the FAFSA form if I am not going to get any financial aid anyway?”
The start date for submitting the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form is coming up faster than ever this year. For the 2017-2018 school year, students (or more likely, their parents) may complete and submit the FAFSA form online as early as October 1.
Last September President Obama made a significant change to the process of applying for financial aid that goes into effect October 1, 2016.
Students going to college in the 2017/2018 school year may now submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form as early as October 1, 2016.
