Debt Ceiling Update

Have you heard about the debt ceiling and wondering how it may impact you? For our Baron clients, we are paying close attention. At the time of this writing on May 31st, the House of Representatives will be voting on a bill this evening at 8:30pm. As we understand it, they expect to have the necessary votes to pass the bill in its current form. At Baron Financial Group, we feel a default is highly unlikely.

That can be true of auto insurance policies, as well. We all have car insurance if we own a car, but some drivers may be underinsured, or even uninsured.
