Retirees should approach auto lenders with their income documentation and a copy of their credit score. Most lenders are willing to work with people who have retirement income such as Social Security, IRAs, and pensions.
Retired loan applicants should always shop around for a lender that is offering the best terms. There is no need to feel obligated to accept a short-term loan based on age, but a short-term loan can also mean a lower interest rate.

Is visible damage to my roof necessary to get coverage after a storm?
A rainstorm caused my roof to start leaking and there's some water damage to my living room. The insurance adjuster told me that my carrier will cover the repairs only if there's visible damage to the roof. Unfortunately, I can't find any noticeable signs of damage, like missing shingles. Is what the adjuster said true?
