Karen Pershing was still in elementary school the first time she witnessed the turmoil alcoholism wrought on a close relative. “Just seeing the emotional anger and how it created some economic stressors within the family” left its mark, she says.

JOE ROGERS: MY TAKE

BEHIND THE WHEEL

Five likely reasons your check engine light just lit up

Americans are holding onto their vehicles longer than ever, with the average age of a car in 2020 rising to a record 12.1 years, data from IHS Markit reveals. But if you own a car for long enough and something goes wrong mechanically, you’re likely to see an amber check engine light somewhere in the gauge cluster.

In some ways, the U.S. credit reporting system has improved. Credit freezes, which lock our credit information to deter identity theft, are now free and fast. We have free weekly access to our credit reports, courtesy of the credit bureaus Equifax, Experian and TransUnion, until April 20. Free credit scores provided by banks, credit card issuers and other companies allow us to easily monitor for signs of fraud and other problems.

MILLENNIAL MONEY

Credit card shopping? Don’t overlook credit unions

CAREER CORNER
