Shoes that are too tight can hurt your feet. Pants that are too loose will fall down. Whatever clothing you’re putting on your body, it’s important to find the right fit if you want to look and feel your best. The same can be said about homeowner’s insurance. If you purchase more coverage than you need, you’re wasting money. But if you underinsure your home and possessions, recovering from a burglary, fire, flood or other natural disaster could be even more costly.

You need homeowner’s insurance with coverage that’s just right for you. And with a little time for research and a few conversations with your insurance agent, it’s absolutely possible to get it.



Some topics are understandably difficult to broach, from telling your boss she has broccoli in her teeth to educating your child about the ‘birds and bees.’ However, the conversation almost everyone fears the most involves the inevitability of death and the practical matters surrounding it.

Zika is a virus transmitted by the Aedes mosquito, a species that is common throughout the world. It may also be transmitted through sexual contact and blood transfusions. First identified in the Zika Valley of Africa in 1947, there have been several outbreaks in locations in Southeast Asia and the Pacific Islands since 2007. Most recently, reported cases in Brazil have risen sharply since May 2015.

In most cases, the Zika virus causes few signs or symptoms, though an estimated one in five people may develop a mild fever, rash, muscle pain, headache or conjunctivitis two to seven days after contracting the virus.Treatment for the flu-like symptoms is limited to plenty of rest and fluids along with acetaminophen or ibuprofen to relieve any joint pain or fever. Most people fully recover within a week.



Many Americans are financially unprepared for retirement. According to the Economic Policy Institute’s latest
study, nearly 50 percent of working-age families have nothing saved in retirement accounts, and the median amount for the rest is only $5,000. Whether this describes your personal financial situation or not, it makes sense to save money where you can. For those over the age of 55, senior discounts are one way to do so.
