We learned lots of lessons in 2020, and one of them was this: Parents are superheroes. From taking Zoom calls between feeding kids to becoming teachers, parents have handled a lot. Now, they’re getting a little extra help: The first advance payments from the expanded 2021 Child Tax Credit are already being sent to parents. It’s an unprecedented event, and as a parent, you may be trying to figure out how to make the most of the additional income.
In this episode, Bright and Brian welcome their first guest, Truist’s Bahari Harris, to talk about:
- Why the 2021 Child Tax Credit is so groundbreaking
- How much you can expect to receive
- Tips for using the payments to improve not just your finances, but also your mental well-being
