first_imgJoin us Tuesday, August 28, 11 a.m. ET for the second webinar in the Family Finances series, Financial Planning for Life Events. RSVP here. By Barbara O’Neill, Ph.D., CFP®, Rutgers Cooperative Extension, oneill@aesop.rutgers.eduPersonal Financial Management program staff often counsel military families about the financial implications of lifestyle transitions. This includes the decision by service members to get married and merge their financial life with a spouse. When a couple gets married, they usually commingle at least some of their personal finances.Some of the biggest challenges a couple will face include joint goal-setting, establishing accounts at financial institutions, deciding how to pay bills and manage money together, and filing income taxes as a married couple. Both spouses also need to review existing financial documents, such as life insurance policies, IRAs, and 401(k)s, and change the beneficiary designation to their spouse, if desired.Image via Pixabay.com/CC0Marriage is also a good time to draft legal documents such as a will, which stipulates how each spouse’s assets will be distributed. Older couples with substantial funds and/or children from a previous marriage may consider a prenuptial agreement to make decisions in advance about financial matters in the event of death or divorce.Below are six recommendations to share with service members who are about to get married:Set Joint Financial Goals- Make a list of short- and longer- term needs and wants. For example, one spouse may need a new car within a year and, together, a couple wants to buy a house within three years. Determine the cost of each goal and the amount that needs to be saved each month to achieve it on time. As an initial financial goal, plan to save at least 3 months living expenses for emergencies such as car repairs.Develop a Spending Plan– Prepare a spending plan (a.k.a., budget) that includes savings for financial goals. Review and revise it as needed. A simple spending plan includes monthly net income, fixed expenses, flexible expenses, and occasional expenses that are paid less frequently than monthly (e.g., quarterly insurance premiums, college tuition, and vacation expenses).Develop a Cash Management Plan– Decide if and how you want to merge financial accounts (e.g., savings and checking). Some couples prefer one joint account while others prefer two separate accounts or a combination of separate and joint accounts. There is no one “right” way for married couples to handle their finances. Factors to consider include convenience, a desire by each spouse for some personal “spending money,” and the minimum balances required by financial institutions to avoid fees.Develop a Payment Plan-Decide how to divide household expenses. If the incomes of two working spouses are fairly equal, bills can be split 50/50. If there is a substantial difference in earnings, bills can be pro-rated. For example, the spouse who earns 70% of household income would pay 70% of the couple’s expenses. The other spouse who earns 30% of total income would pay the remaining 30% of the bills.Come Clean About Credit– Review each other’s credit reports prior to marriage. If a spouse-to-be has a poor credit history, don’t apply for a joint loan (e.g., mortgage) or credit cards. Keep your credit histories separate until negative information drops off the poor credit report, usually in 7 years (10 years for bankruptcy). If one spouse co-signs a loan for the other, he or she becomes legally responsible. Similarly, if financial accounts are merged, assets of the spouse with a good credit history can be seized by creditors.Adjust Your Tax Withholding– Complete a new W-4 form (available from each spouse’s employer) to reflect your new marital status. Two-paycheck working couples may need to have more tax withheld to cover the higher taxes that may be due on their combined income. Instead of claiming one withholding allowance, one or both spouses may want to claim zero or even have an additional amount withheld so they don’t fall short of what they owe. Conversely, couples with one earner may experience a “tax bonus” as a result of marriage and need less tax withheld than before. This is because they will benefit from the higher dollar amounts on tax brackets for married couples versus singles.last_img read more

first_img Essential Reading! Get my first book: The Only Sale Guide You’ll Ever Need “The USA Today bestseller by the star sales speaker and author of The Sales Blog that reveals how all salespeople can attain huge sales success through strategies backed by extensive research and experience.” Buy Now The people with concerns tend to always have concerns. For them, it’s not you, or your company, or your solution that concerns them. They are concerned about almost everything.The people who are grouchy aren’t grouchy because you called them. They were grouchy before you called them, and they’ll be grouchy the next day, and the day after that. They are grouchy people.The people who are cheap aren’t just cheap when it comes from buying what you sell. They’re always cheap, refusing to believe that anything else equals value. When cheap things fail cheap people, they buy the next cheap thing. The thing that makes cheap people is that they are cheap.The people who are skeptical don’t believe what you are saying. They don’t believe what anyone says. To the skeptic, everything is suspect—and so is everyone. The skeptic doesn’t trust you because they don’t trust anyone.The people who already know everything can’t take on any new information. There is no room for new ideas, even if they are valuable. They don’t know everything about their business or your business or some other thing. They know everything about everything. This is what makes them the people who already know everything.The people who are fiercely loyal can always be counted on to be fiercely loyal. They’re not just loyal to your competitor. They’re loyal to all the people to whom they are loyal. You hope someday they are loyal to you.The people who don’t have time now never have time. It’s not that they don’t perceive value in what you are offering to trade for time. They don’t value anything more than being the people who don’t have time.The people who go dark to avoid conflict and fear being sold avoid having to tell people no and choose instead to disappear. You are not the first person they have avoided. They avoid everyone who might require they say yes or no.The people who are perpetually unsatisfied are never satisfied. That’s what makes the perpetually unsatisfied. If they could ever be satisfied, they wouldn’t be who they are.The people who refuse to change even in the face of overwhelming evidence that they need to change. They still have a fax machine next to their desk because it’s worked perfectly well for more than two decades. If they were willing to change, they would not be the people who refuse to change.It’s easy to believe that how a person appears to you is their response to you. But often, maybe most of the time, the person is who they are, and how they appear has nothing to do with you.last_img read more

first_imgClose to a 1,000 people turned up at Bongaigaon town’s Gandhi Maidan on Tuesday to be the first to trade a kilo of plastic for a sapling and a cloth bag. A 70-year-old woman beat them all to make an ecological statement.Bongaigaon, the headquarters of Bongaigaon district, is about 180 km west of Guwahati.Renuka Roy Choudhury had a reason to be the first to deposit the plastic from her house in a plastic bank set up by the Bongaigaon Municipal Board — to send a message that the older generations have to take the lead in undoing the damage done to the environment.“We have enough saplings in the Social Forestry nurseries, but brought 200 for the ‘plants-for-plastic’ exchange programme. The overwhelming response made us realise we brought too few,” the district’s Deputy Commissioner Adil Khan said.Ms. Choudhury and the 199 others were given saplings of gooseberry, olive, mango, jackfruit, mahogany and other local species of trees for a total of 200 kilos of plastic deposited. Each of them also received a cloth bag manufactured by local women’s self-help groups.Each of these bags can withstand more than 2 kg of weight.Mr. Khan said those who missed out on a sapling on Tuesday would be provided with one later. “We will continue with the programme till the town is free of single-use plastic. The plastic bank will be open at the Municipal Board’s office for anyone to deposit a kilo of plastic and get a sapling in return,” he said.Banana barkThe Social Forestry wing of the Assam Forest Department pitched in with innovation too. Officials replaced black polythene bags with the bark of banana plants for holding the saplings. These were tied with jute threads.The district administration had, ahead of the ‘plants for plastic’ drive, discussed an alternative to the polythene sapling bags with Divisional Forest Officer Abdel Salam Arief. Forester Lakhi Nath came up with the banana bark idea.The Bongaigaon district administration said the drive would perhaps not have been possible without the involvement of a green group called Robin Hood Army. Its volunteers facilitated the exchange programme.last_img read more
