Looking for the perfect budget? Maybe the key isn’t counting every penny or finding the perfect spreadsheet. Elle Martinez, author of the new book Couple Money, believes that whether you’re single or married the answer might lie in communication, and we’ll tackle how to have money dates and stop fighting about money on today’s show.
In our headlines segment, we share a story about comedian Tracy Morgan. Apparently Walmart, who paid him $90M after a severe accident in 2015, wants more proof about his injury. We’ll discuss disability coverage and more from that fallout. Then we throw out the Haven Life line to Susan, who asks about taking out a student loan for her son so he can establish credit. We’ll also answer a letter from Julian about Roth IRAs, help Doug bring down the trivia, and sprinkle in some pick up lines along the way.
