Attorney Eric Olsen, Executive Director of the HELPS Non-profit Law Firm, explains why seniors could stop making car payments if they are too high. The former bankruptcy attorney details why seniors can stop making high car payments, unlike younger workers, as their income is protected by federal law.

Olsen walks viewers through the repossession process, and what repo men are and aren't allowed to do. He even lays out how you could stop paying for a few months to help you save up enough to buy a cheaper car.

The lawyer lays out how to buy a used car for cash, which can also lower your car insurance bills. He details affordable transportation options for seniors including Uber, Lyft, and taxis. Taking a taxi to the grocery store may seem like a luxury, but it could save you hundreds of dollars a month over making regular car payments. By getting groceries delivered, seniors could save even more money.

Finally, the Founder of the HELPS Non-profit Law Firm describes how HELPS can help you at little or no cost, including keeping debt collectors at bay.
