22 Jun Why do Seniors have debt problems ?
Unfortunately, a growing trend today is that Seniors are getting into financial difficulty. The reasons for this are varied, but may include:
-access to credit cards, not as available in their younger years;
-lack of budgeting skill, in living on reduced retirement income, often with higher costs: medical, hydro, gas, and other costs;
-often helping younger family members by using credit, when they can’t afford to;
-too much time on their hands, with ready access to gambling sites, credit cards, and other opportunities.
