Term life insurance can be a way for your beneficiaries take care of temporary financial obligations that could cause major hardship to them should you die.
One of the key differences between term and regular whole life insurance is that term insurance is for a specified time period, or "term." That usually makes it significantly less expensive than whole life insurance.
Over the past several years members of the military subject to hostile fire and other dangerous situations have overpaid at least $100 million on their student loans. The federal government quietly announced a policy recently that advocates hope will bring that number close to zero in the coming years.
The next time the Washington National Guard gets called to help fight wildfires in the state they will get a raise.
Gov. Jay Inslee signed a bill into law April 19 allowing guardsmen to get $12 per hour, the state's minimum wage.
For the last 30 years, they received a military salary based on a formula involving the federal minimum wage, which paid them almost $11 an hour last year.
