Welcome to the "Producer's Corner" where you'll find news and notes from Morning Show Producer Scott Fitzgerald.
It’s a new year and a popular resolution for many is to improve their financial situation. “Now is a great time to take stock of your financial well-being” says Navy Federal Credit Union President and CEO Cutler Dawson. For three years now I’ve been endorsing Navy Federal Credit Union. I put my name behind Navy Federal because I’ve been a member for 15 years.
For nearly 80 years Navy Federal has been serving the military with programs and services tailored to the military lifestyle and not offered to those outside the armed forces. Some of those services include (but aren’t limited to) outstanding free checking accounts and interest rates on auto loans and mortgages. Last year we were a pre-approved for a 2.99% auto loan for our new SUV.
2013 is a good time to map out a smart money strategy that doesn’t involve unnecessary fees and expenses other banks charge their members. For example Navy Federal’s active duty checking account is free and members can earn dividends as well as receive up to $20 in free ATM rebates each month. I don’t know about you, but if I found a $20 bill on the ground at the end of each month, I sure wouldn’t pass it up.
If you (or a family member) is currently serving in the military (even you DoD Contractors) I encourage you to visit navyfederal.org and see for yourself.
Navy Federal is financially solid and federally insured by the NCUA.

A new study from McAfee examines the online habits and interests of preteens, teens and young adults and finds there is a significant disconnect between what they do online and what their parents believe they do. While they understand the Internet can be dangerous, they still engage in risky behavior, hiding this activity from their parents, and even admitting that they would change their behavior if they knew their parents were paying attention. And the majority of parents (72%) simply admit defeat or say that they don"t have the time or energy to keep up with their children and hope for the best. With Tony is Robert Siciliano, online security expert.

68% of Americans think the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) selected some conservative groups for additional scrutiny mostly for political reasons, but Republicans think the Obama administration was involved in the decisions to target those groups, while Democrats do not. Most say what the IRS did was wrong, but are divided on whether the agency's actions were illegal, or merely unethical. Republicans, and particularly Tea Party supporters, are more likely to describe the IRS's targeting of conservative groups as illegal. Tony talks with CBS News Director of Surveys Sarah Dutton.
The National Security Agency currently is collecting the telephone records of millions of U.S. customers of Verizon under a top secret court order, Britain's Guardian newspaper reported Wednesday. What legal fallout could result? With Tony is CBS News Legal Analyst Andrew Cohen.

Almost two-thirds of uninsured Americans have not yet decided if they will purchase health insurance by the Jan. 1 deadline, according to a new survey that InsuranceQuotes.com released this week. 58% of Americans are not sure if they will be eligible for tax credits to reduce the cost of health insurance. Low-income households have the potential to benefit the most from health subsidies, but those with annual income under $30,000 are the least likely to be aware of their eligibility (68% are not certain). 61% of the uninsured say they lack health insurance because they can't afford it.

Industry advocates paint a dire scenario of costly audits, abandoned projects and disrupted business models as firms prepare for the first significant changes under the 1998 Children"s Online Privacy Protection Act since the rise of mobile technology and social networks. Privacy groups and the Federal Trade Commission, which set the new COPPA requirements, view the expanded rules as vital to protecting kids. And while few denounce that goal, the tensions underscore new complexities in an era where businesses increasingly rely on data collection and children have unparalleled access to the Internet.

Already heavily criticized for targeting conservative groups, the Internal Revenue Service absorbed another blow Tuesday as new details emerged about senior officials enjoying luxury hotel rooms, free drinks and free food at a $4.1 million training conference.
