You finally made it through college and graduated with a degree, a new set of friends, great memories, and most likely a significant amount of student loan debt.

Procrastinator alert: your taxes are due! If you are nowhere near ready as the scary deadline approaches, you may file an extension with the IRS that gives you up to six more months to file your taxes.

June 28 is National Insurance Awareness Day. Is it a coincidence that less than a week later, we celebrate Independence Day with lots of explosives in untrained hands? Americans spent a record $945 million on fireworks in 2018, according to the American Pyrotechnics Association (APA).

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused many professional fireworks displays to be cancelled, resulting in even more potentially dangerous at-home fireworks shows. Perhaps it's time to brush up on your knowledge of fireworks safety and how potential damage or injury could be covered by your insurance policies.

For many Americans, the Fourth of July holiday means cookouts, family get-togethers, and a nighttime fireworks show.
