Being unable to sleep at night because your finances are keeping you awake is no way to live. You do have options to help you get out of the financial crisis.

5 points about filing for bankruptcy

Losing your job because of illness or injury sends you into a downward spiral. Your income stops when you lose your job. In some cases, workers' compensation payments help, but they usually aren't what you need to cover the basics. Add in the medical bills that you might have coming in and the situation can get dire. If you are facing a sea of debt, you have options to consider. Bankruptcy is one of those options.

Options for customers when credit card companies increase rates

Pennsylvania residents may be concerned about the recently announced interest rate increases for American Express cardholders.

Credit card debt and arbitration clauses

Many Pennsylvania residents who have credit cards are bound by agreements to enter into arbitration instead of being able to file lawsuits against their credit card companies. Although arbitration is touted as a less expensive and quicker method to resolve disputes than court litigation, these clauses generally favor the credit card companies while preventing consumers from being able to file class action suits.

Understanding how credit card interest is calculated

Using credit cards can create financial challenges especially if consumers do not watch their spending and do not understand how interest is calculated. Credit card users with consumer debt who experience unemployment, reduced income and increased expenses may face creditor harassment because of delinquent payments. Consumers in Pennsylvania and across the country who are making only minimum payments on a credit card to their credit card company could benefit from understanding how credit card interest is calculated.
