Young Money: Students and mental health
A recent poll revealed that 1 in 4 students suffers from mental health problems, rising to 1 in 3 among female students. This can affect your ability to study effectively and even forces some students to give up their courses altogether. Sarah looks at the link between money and mental health and what support is available.

Ask Sarah: How do ISAs work?
This week Sarah looks at how ISAs work. What are the different types available now, and how do they all work? Are they still the best option for savers? Figures published last week showed that 12.7m people had an ISA in the tax year up to April, down slightly from 13m last year. With savings rates so low, maybe that's not surprising.

Women & Money: Why do women's products cost more than men's?
Why are women’s products more expensive than men’s? Women pay more for a whole range of items, including razors, some models of pen, perfume compared to aftershave and even for things like dry cleaning. So, is this a premium that's unfairly imposed on female products or is it a justified cost that manufacturers and retailers pass on?

Young Money: Help to Buy ISAs
It emerged last month that savers using the Help to Buy ISA can’t in fact use this money for a deposit, and the government was criticised for misleading hopeful homebuyers after many were left with huge holes in their budgets. So what are the options now for those desperate to get on the property ladder?

Your Money, Your Future: Switching current accounts
It's almost three years since new rules were brought in to make it quicker and easier to switch bank account, but figures show that only 3% of us do this every year. Two weeks ago the competition watchdog published its report into banking - shying away from recommending that the banks had the interest rate on their overdrafts capped. Sarah looks at why you should switch and the best way to do it, and what you need to consider.

Your Money, Your Future: Planning for retirement
To get the most out of retirement, financially and in terms of what you do, it's really worth planning for. Not just how much you put into your pension, but when you retire, how you retire and how much money you'll need. When should you do this kind of planning, do you need professional advice or can you work it all out yourself? And what are your options if you've not yet thought about your retirement?
