That finding comes from the 2015 Consumer Financial Literacy Survey conducted by the National Foundation for Credit Counseling (the survey collected data from 2,017 U.S. adults).

  • Connect The Docs: Remember Your Doctors Work For YouExclusive

    For many of us, one of our fears about aging and illness is losing our power of choice over our quality of life. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

The key is to make sure all of your health providers know what matters most to you in your quality of life – in other words, your goals for living fully. Then, in the years ahead, they can all work with the same goals in mind – yours – in caring for you and communicating with one another about your health.
    How do you choose your goals? It’s about balance. As we grow older, our...
