As we move into the 3rd or 4th week of staying home, COVID-19 is still affecting almost every area of our lives. We’re talking about how to cope. We’re going to tell you about how we’re taking care of our mental health, our families, and our businesses.

Last week we talked a lot about the stimulus checks many of us will be getting. This week we’re also talking about how this bill affects small businesses, freelancers, and other 1099 workers.

Then as always, we’re answering YOUR questions, including:

  • I haven’t filed my taxes in two years. What do I need to do to qualify for a stimulus check?
  • I thought the president suspended student loan payments. My servicer is telling me my full payment is due. What do I do?
  • I was planning on opening a credit card this month, should I wait?
