Radio guest explains pros cons of reverse mortgages
WASHINGTON (3/28/08)--If you’re wondering whether a reverse mortgage is something you or a family member should consider, listen in as H&FF Radio guests tackle that topic and more, including why you may be paying more for new or used cars, how a national ID card would affect you, and how to make the most of your 401(k). Home & Family Finance airs Sundays at 3 p.m. EDT on the Radio America Network. The one-hour program devoted to consumer finance issues is brought to you by America's credit unions and their 90 million members, and is presented by CO-OP Network.

Sunday’s show, which you also can hear later via the Internet, features Paul Berry, Washington, D.C., journalist and broadcaster, discussing these topics with special guests:
* “How Auto Auction Prices Influence What You Pay for a Vehicle,” with Ricky Beggs, vice president and managing editor, Black Book Guides, Gainesville, Ga.; * “REAL ID: Will the U.S. Have a National Identity Card?
