In this week’s episode of The Crushing Debt Podcast, I interview my friend, referral partner, and property & casualty agent, Rich Ficca, owner of Florida Coastal Insurance Agency.

With many businesses feeling the sting of COVID-19 and the resulting loss in business, Rich and I discuss Business Interruption Insurance claims, specifically:

  • What is Business Interruption Insurance?
  • The impact of Business Interruption Insurance on Hurricane Claims and other types of insurance claims.
  • The impact of Business Interruption Insurance on landlord / tenant law.

You can contact Rich by email here, and you can visit his website here. You can also listen to Episode 69, where we discuss Hurricane preparedness here.

Please also visit our sponsor, Attorneys First Insurance, although Sam Cohen provides a different type of coverage (E&O Insurance for title companies and attorneys). Rich and Sam often refer clients to each other as they write different types of policies.

If you have questions about business interruption insurance, please: (a) subscribe to the podcast (for free) to automatically download next week’s episode (Part 2) where I interview attorney Jim Jenkins on this same topic, and (b) contact me by email, or visit my website, for additional information.

On this week’s episode of The Crushing Debt Podcast, we’re happy to have Brian Morris back on the show to talk about his new book - How to Wipe Your Dad’s Ass and Other Things his Doctor won’t tell you about Alzheimer’s.

Brian is NOT a doctor, nor is he a licensed caregiver for people suffering from dementia. Brian IS a son who watched and cared for his father who eventually did die from Alzheimer’s. Brian captures the end of his father’s life with raw, unfiltered reality and emotion. Brian also tells stories and gives practical advice to family members dealing with a loved one fighting this disease. I read this book and although I have no family members currently fighting dementia, I thought it was a fantastic book!

Brian and I discuss: (1) the financial impact of Alzheimer’s, (2) his purpose for writing the book, (3) the signs of dementia, (4) some “how to” and (5) other topics.

Brian was also a guest on Episode 57 (discussing AFLAC) and Episode 138 (the Profit Prophet).

You can find the book on Amazon here.

You can contact Brian here.

You can visit Brian’s website here.

Please also visit out sponsor, Attorneys First Insurance, if you are an attorney or title company seeking malpractice insurance.

If you have questions for me, or are caring for a senior with significant debt, please contact me here by email or at the Yesner Law website.

What can you do to protect your home from foreclosure if you’ve lost income or your job during the COVID-19 shutdown? As we re-emerge and re-open the economy in Phase 1, what should you do if you fell behind in your mortgage payments over the last few months?

A few weeks ago, I was interviewed on Tampa Bay Today with Shriner on Money Talk 1010 AM.

I thank Money Talk 1010AM and Tampa Bay Today with Shriner for allowing me to use that interview to turn into today’s podcast episode.

The main point to understand is that the forbearance does NOT save your home; it merely gives you some breathing room in your budget. You still need to catch up your mortgage payments when the forbearance is over, like loan modifications and repayment plans, and why a refinance after a forbearance is a bad idea.

Please remember to visit our sponsor, Attorneys First Insurance, if you are an attorney or title company and need a quote for malpractice insurance. If Sam Cohen doesn’t answer on the first ring, you are eligible for a substantial cash prize, or at least a sincere apology.

If you want to know how to use a forbearance correctly, to help you in a effort to save your home, please contact our office for a free consultation, Shawn@YesnerLaw.com or www.YesnerLaw.com.

In this week’s episode, I take some time to answer some great listener questions. Thank you all for keeping the questions coming in!  I hope all of you are staying safe during the pandemic. Here in Tampa, FL (and in many other areas) starts Phase 1 to “reopen” the Country.  We hope that everyone continues to stay safe and wash your hands!

Today, we cover:

  • Are payments to my chapter 13 trustee refundable if I dismiss my case?
  • I received notice from my homeowner or condominium association to pay rent. Do I follow that notice or pay the landlord?
  • Is it possible to sell my house while I have a lawsuit filed against me?
  • Can a prospective employer turn me down for having a low credit score.

This week’s episode, also references Episode 72 and Episode 74 with Bryan Levine.

Please also visit our sponsor, Sam Cohen, with Attorneys First Insurance, if you are an attorney or title company looking for an honest price on malpractice insurance.

Please continue to keep these great questions coming in, for us to answer on future episodes. Thank you for being a listener and please connect with me by email at Shawn@YesnerLaw.com, if there’s anything I can do to help as we hopefully emerge from this worldwide pandemic.
