Would you like to know how the financial stability of your bank or credit union is rated? Try our Database of the Month: Financial Ratings Series Online from Weiss Ratings (available in the library or remotely with a Newton library card). The database includes financial strength ratings and financial planning tools covering banks, credit unions, and insurance companies.
Use the Search option to find ratings, or download any of the seven Financial Planning Tools including a Medicare Prescription Drug Planner, an Auto Insurance Quote Comparison Chart and an Investor Profile Quiz. Look up Banking, Insurance and Investment terms in the extensive Glossaries.
And if you’re in the Library, look for the Weiss Consumer Guides on our Consumer Table at the back of the first floor. These nine guides cover Homeowner’s Insurance, Automobile Insurance, Variable Annuities, Term Life Insurance, Elder care Choices, Long-Term Care Insurance, Health Savings Accounts, Medicare Prescription Drug Coverage, and Medicare Supplement Insurance.
Home access for this database is available only to Newton residents with a Newton library card number beginning 21323.
