“Be That One Guy” Aims to Make the Workplace Safer for Everyone

The “Be That One Guy,” campaign was born when the group discovered that all too often people go to work with a fear that has nothing to do with the danger of the job they are performing.

If your score is above 740, you have excellent credit, and if it is below 650 you will pay higher interest rates on the credit you receive and have a harder time getting credit. We know you’ve seen the advertisements about checking your credit score and how important it is to keep tabs on it, but why is it such a big deal?


When Not to File an Auto Insurance Claim

The situation is all too familiar. Maybe you nicked another car while parallel parking or backed into the cement wall of a parking garage. Maybe you were even involved in a more serious fender bender and the other driver suggests settling the damages with a cash payment.
