Seeing as the new year has begun, most people living in Virginia have started to carry out their New Year's resolutions and take more responsibility for their lives. One of the best ways to step up and be more responsible is to plan for the inevitable and prepare one's estate before it's too late.
Households in Virginia and throughout the country carried an average credit card balance of $8,284 in the third quarter of 2018. That was a 2 percent increase from the third quarter of 2017, according to a study from WalletHub. As debt levels increase, it may become more difficult for households to repay them. Increasing interest rates may also make it harder to repay those balances.
