    I'm 18 years old and I'm planning to move out of my parents' house because I feel like they are extremely toxic. I currently have 3 bank accounts which have some money I inherited from a deceased relative (2 checking and 1 savings), and they are keeping track of the money in all of the accounts. On my savings account, they even set something up where if I want to withdraw or transfer money, it'll go through them first. On my checking accounts, they find out my activity not too long after I do something. They will even know if I'm earning money. I am using Wells Fargo, and it's set up where I have a username and password and then I can see a list of my accounts. I'd really like to continue using Wells Fargo, but if the only way is to create an account from another bank, I'll do that. If I create a new Wells Fargo account, it will also show up on the list of account (at least I think). They do not know my username and password. Will they be able to keep track of the account(s) that I create, and how can I fix the problem with my savings account?

    I am 18 yo, entering the Air Force this summer (slated for August but could be pushed forward or back). Right now I'm a server at restaurant and I don't even have a checking account. Most of my pay is in cash tips, which I just keep and spend. But I also have a pay card that is loaded with my hourly wage and any credit card tips. I also have a Walmart card, that I pay off each month in store. I want to save at least half of my income when I get in the AIr Force. I know nothing about finance. My dad just tlls me to work hard and save my money. Should I just be looking at a simple savings account, CDs? Bonds? I'm a little leery on investing since it's a dice roll. I know there are investment strategies but I have no idea what they are or how to apply them.

I know, I don't NEED this phone by June, but I would really really like it by then. Please give me good advice. I don't like wasting my time with ridiculous answers that are not helpful. Thanks!

    My husband and I just got married in December of last year. Before we got married I was aware my husband had a physical disability. With his disability he says he cannot stand for over four hours due to the way his bones and ligaments are in his feet. He has been on SSI since he was four years old ever since then his grandmother has been his payee and in control of all aspects of his finances. However, since we've been together my husband does not see it get any of this money he is entitled to his mother holds on to it. In December after we got married I was at work on this day and his grandmother went to his SSI appt with him so he could get in control of his money but instead my husband ended up telling me during the appt. his grandmother and mom told my husband to tell the social worker not to say anything about our marriage so he could keep his benefits. Does it sound like they have his best interests? We are struggling I just lost my job and I have a two year old son to take care of. We have been staying with my husband's mom until we can afford a place of our own again we had to let go of our apartment because we couldn't afford it. We have literally going hungry. If I was able to make enough money to support all three of us this wouldn't be an issue. I am sick of minimum wage jobs just to survive. I want to go to college and have a career do something I enjoy doing and make a better income to support us.I feel like I'm not getting any support I don't want to live a lie

    Okay so my boyfriend and I are both students who have been together for a long time. We opened a joint account together where we both place money monthly. I recognise that I do place more money into the account and I have no problem with this since I do earn more than he does. However my issue is that within the past 5 months I have noticed that he is taking money out of the account (nothing suspicious just regular daily spending) but he does not put money into the account, and instead only sometimes pays back what money he took out (which is what I put in there). He's lovely and does treat me really well, he's always full of little gifts. However I feel like I'm funding this account and lately he's treating it like spending money. Am I right to feel this way? How do I tell him without hurting him?

  • If I put $100,000 into a trust fund for my 10 year old niece, what kind of disbursements should I allow the trust to make over her life?

    Best answer: 1. Why are you setting up a trust fund for a niece? That's a little weird, unless you are her guardian. 2. I wouldn't do any age below 25; people usually work out their childhood garbage by that point. When I recommend these to clients, I always push to 25.

    Best answer: 1. Why are you setting up a trust fund for a niece? That's a little weird, unless you are her guardian.
    2. I wouldn't do any age below 25; people usually work out their childhood garbage by that point. When I recommend these to clients, I always push to 25. I know someone who just turned 25 and got a big inheritance...she knew it was coming and worked garbage jobs until then. She is going to burn through a nice chunk of it really quickly, some of which is paying back debts to friends (and drug dealers...who also knew her situation). So, 30 might be a better number, depending on the person.
    3. Why not setup an education fund instead or split them? Setup a 529 with some of those funds and perhaps buy an annuity. These are easier than dealing with a trust, but there are reasons for doing a trust over an annuity.
    4. As for disbursements, why not a little bit annually rather than 10% per decade? Just look at the other recent post from this section: https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index...
    5. Lastly, why do you want her to have a comfortable retirement? You are giving her a substantial leg up in life. If she goes broke by 65...you shouldn't feel too bad...
