A news release from the National Fotmdation for Credit Counseling out- lines just how to look at some of those decisions. Using automatic bill paying: Having payments automatically dealt with makes bill paying some- thing you don't have to worry about ... until you do have to worry about it because you neglect to delete those transactions from your check register and you overdraw your account. Using reward cards: You're told you can earn points for air travel or cash back, but that can cause you to use the card more often just to increase your rewards. At the same time, those hard-earned re- wards programs can change at any time, with new rules and levels to reach. Bundling your services: You can often get a cheap- er rate if you combine cable television, fast Internet and your cell phone into one plan. The savings disappear if you opt for a more expensive plan based on what you perceive you're saving. Co-signing loans: On #he positive side, you'll be helping someone establish credit of their own When you agree to co-sign a note. On the negative side -- and it is a big negative -- that credit amount is deducted from your own availability because you are equally responsible for the loan. Giving up the use of credit: The biggest benefit is that you no longer pay interest. That interest can be expensive, especially if the credit is used for items like groceries. You'll be paying for that dinner for a long time. On the other hand, someday you'll need credit, perhaps for a big item like a home or vehicle. Without a good credit history, you're likely to be stuck paying atrocious rates or not be granted credit at all. Closing credit-card accounts: It can be so satisfy- ing to pay off a credit card, and your reaction might be to close the account. Don't. That credit is part of your overall credit profile because that available amount figures into the calculation ofall your credit. When you delete a source of available credit, you change your debt ratio Before you make any financial decisions, consider any possible consequences. (c) 2010 King Features Synd., Inc.

By Matilda Charles There's one thing that seniors haven't gotten better at over the decades, and it can be deadly: We delay too long in getting help if we suspect we or someone we love is having a heart attack. In a study of more than 104,000 heart-attack patients reported in Archives of Internal Medicine, researchers compared the time it look to receive care with the rate of mortality from heart attack. The average time of delay in going to the hospital was 2.6 hours. There are two types of heart attack: STEMI and non- STEMI. The STEMI portion means "ST segment eleva- tion myocardial infarction," which is when a coronary artery becomes blocked by a clot and the heart sustains damage. Minutes count when it comes to getting care. The difficulty, researchers said, is that the patient can't tell if he or she is having one type or the other. Only by getting to the hospital quickly and being hooked up to an electrocardiogram machine can it be determined. Quite often the symptoms of heart attack are initially mild. Rule of thumb if you experience any symptoms -- such as shortness of breath or discomfort in the chest or any other upper-body area ~ is to call for help within five minutes. That's right: five minutes. When you call 911, not only will you get initial care fast when paramedics arrive (faster than having some- one drive you to the hospital), but once you get to the emergency room, if you're brought in by ambulance you'll be seen immediately. For more information, go to www.mayoclinic.com and put "heart attack symptoms" in the search box. (c) 2010 King Features Synd., Inc.
