"They want to do a better job with their grandchildren than they did with their own children," states financial literacy expert and award-winning columnist Susan Beacham.

Lake Bluff, IL (Vocus/PRWEB ) September 16, 2008 -- Grandparents are hungry for the opportunity to teach their grandchildren about money.

To help grandparents talk to their grandchildren about money, Beacham launched a new column this week, Money Savvy Grands. This new financial advice column is featured on silvervixens.com, an on-line gathering place for women over 55. This new thought-provoking column highlights financial literacy and money management challenges faced by grandparents as they relate to their grandchildren.

Beacham, who leads grandparent workshops, regularly sees how much grandparents want to give their grandchildren financial literacy tools as gifts or to give to their own children to make the choice. "Grandparents are in a unique position when it comes to their grandchildren,” notes Beacham. “They don’t want to critique the parents’ style of parenting; rather they want to support it. Money education is a great place to interject that support. Grandparents have the experience and the time, and parents are happy to get the extra help."

Beacham grew up with her grandmother and understands the power a grandparent has when delivering a message. "Grandparents are unconditional when they educate their grandchildren. It makes the message easier to embrace," says Beacham.

Susan Beacham is the founder of Money Savvy Generation and creator of the beloved Money Savvy Pig®, a patented four-chambered bank which teaches children the power of delayed gratification through money choices and goal-setting. She is also a financial expert, speaker, award-winning, nationally syndicated columnist and most recently co-authored The Millionaire Kid$ Club children’s book series on money with financial expert Lynnette Khalfani-Cox.

Changes to ISMI Need to be Taken with a Pinch of Salt, Says Burgesses

Wednesday, September 24th, 2008 | Financial Press Release

Borrowers must not fall in to the trap of believing the recently announced changes to Income Support for Mortgage Interest (ISMI) payments mean they have nothing to worry about.

Braintree, Essex (PRWEB) September 16, 2008 -- Borrowers must not fall in to the trap of believing the recently announced changes to Income Support for Mortgage Interest (ISMI) payments mean they have nothing to worry about.

Last week Stephen Timms, minister for welfare reform, announced that ISMI benefit would, from next April, be available after 13 weeks and not 39 weeks as is currently the situation.

At the moment, the benefit is only paid on the interest on loans up to £100,000, thereafter no support is given. Timms also announced that this would change from next April and that the upper limit for the benefit would move to £175 000.

This is welcome news for a small number of borrowers, however it is important that people do not mistake the headlines and simply believe there is now a state-sponsored safety net in place for those who struggle with their mortgage because of accident, sickness or unemployment.

Sara-Ann Burgess, Managing Director at payment protection insurance specialist Burgesses, comments: "I am pleased to see the government make changes in this area, but as usual they do not go far enough and they will do little to help the vast majority of borrowers in the UK who fall into problems with their mortgage in the years ahead."

In the first instance, Burgess said those eligible to claim would still have to pay their mortgage for the first 13 weeks, before they were able to claim any help. Three months is a long time and even if lenders were prepared to work with borrowers if they fall behind on their payments, avoiding the debt mounting to unserviceable levels would be very difficult indeed.

Burgess also said that there was only a very small percentage of people eligible for the ISMI benefit, which is only open to those on Income Support, Pension Credit and income-based Jobseeker's Allowance.

Indeed she worried that many people seeing all of the headlines may fail to read further into the issue and simply assume that the government has taken steps to provide cover for them.

"If people really want to look out for both themselves and their families, then relying on the ISMI changes is a very dangerous approach indeed," says Burgess. "Looking out for the flexible and good value policies now available in the market is the only way people can be sure they are covered from the first day they are unable to work and that they will have money to pay the bills."
