If you’ve been contributing for many years to your 401(k) or similar retirement plan, it may be your largest pool of money. So, if you are facing a financial need, you may think about tapping into your account. After all, it’s your money — why not use it?

It’s the most wonderful time of the year for cybercriminals as many consumers are rounding out their end of year giving and getting some last-minute deals with end of year sales. With the increase in online shopping and donation activity due to C0VID-19, BBB has seen a dramatic spike in online scams. BBB reminds consumers and donors to use caution when conducting online transactions through the end of the year.

The holiday season is a time to show appreciation to our loved ones, both people and pets. Handmade toys and treats are a wonderful way to do so — they allow owners to avoid busy stores during the pandemic, ensure their gift is pet-safe, and add a personalized touch.

Many of us probably felt that 2020 lasted a very long time. But now that 2021 is upon us, we can make a fresh start — and one way to do that is to make some New Year’s resolutions. Of course, you can make these resolutions for all parts of your life — physical, emotional, intellectual — but …

DEAR DR. ROACH: Anytime I work — outside or in the house, in any season — my head sweats the whole time. A lot of sweat comes off my head. I have to cool off inside under a fan every half hour, even if air conditioning is on. I put ice on my head, and I don’t sweat anywhere else.

The holiday season is a favorite time of year for many to transform their homes with festive decorations, bake winter treats and open their doors to guests. Because these traditions introduce new variables into their furry friend’s environment, pet owners should be aware of any potential hazards that might arise.

As the year draws to a close, it’s fair to say that we’ve all learned something about the social, political, physical and environmental forces that have affected everyone. And, in some ways, our lives will be changed, perhaps permanently. But as an investor, what lessons can you learn from 2020?

You won’t see any greeting cards celebrating it, and it’s not likely to be on your calendar, but in just a few weeks, National 401(k) Day will be observed. And this type of recognition may be warranted, too, because 401(k) plans have become key building blocks for a big part of people’s lives – a comfortable retirement. Are you making the most of your 401(k)?

DEAR DR. ROACH: A few months ago, my husband was told that his prostate cancer has returned. He now has stage 4 cancer. We asked all of his doctors (five of them!) what his prognosis is and received wildly varying answers -- everything from two months to maybe 10 years. I understand that his prognosis depends on many factors, but is there a reason his physicians can't give us a better idea? I also want very much to know if he will be in pain, and they won't give me an answer about that, either. Can you help? -- S.S.

Mother’s Day is upon us. If you’re a mother, you’ll enjoy the recognition you get from your family on this day. And given the health concerns caused by the coronavirus, your appreciation of family may be even greater this year. As we all know, mothers have a difficult job. And many mothers a…

Recently, we’ve seen an increased interest in mindfulness, although the concept itself is thousands of years old. Essentially, being mindful means you are living very much in the present, highly conscious of your thoughts and feelings.
