Four Costly Money Mistakes

The choices you make today can affect the rest of your financial life. Here are four money mistakes, and steps you can take to avoid them!

Not saving for emergencies: Almost 60 percent of Americans don’t have enough money in their savings account to pay for an unexpected expense, such as job loss or illness. Building a robust savings will allow you to use your financial safety net for these expenses, instead of having to borrow from credit. Click here to discover a variety of savings options available to you at SeaComm!

Overpaying for car repairs: If you have ever driven away from the auto mechanic feeling like your wallet just took a big hit, you are not alone. SeaComm has teamed up with ForeverCar to offer a great new benefit that helps to eliminate the hassles of car repair. If your car qualifies, you could be eligible to purchase mechanical repair coverage at an exclusive member rate!

How it works:

  1. Get your instant ForeverCar quote.
  2. Customize your deductible.
  3. Use the licensed repair facility of your choice.

When your covered repair is complete, simply pay your deductible and drive on. Click here to get started.
