I dropped (back) out of college during this past summer session. I am not registered to take any more courses, ever. Yesterday I received a Pell Grant check in the mail alongside a statement from the university bursar's office noting the credit amount. This is a total surprise as I had no previous indication I'd be receiving any financial aid. I could use the money (not for school). Should I cash the check or send it back?

If one lives in State A and sustains a business loss and has an eligible net carry loss forward that will run over several years, and then one moves to State B the next year after the year in which the loss is sustained, is it accurate that none of the net carry loss forward can be used in State B, eg although one still retains the benefit for federal tax purposes, moving to another state effectively loses the opportunity to use the net loss carry forward for state tax purposes since you're now living in a state in which the loss was not originally incurred?

I use MS Money which is being discontinued by Microsoft. Can you recommend a replacement based on firsthand experience. The obvious is Intuit, but I'm finding mixed reviews on using it for personal finances. I basically want to track spending (downloading bank and credit card data), and to sort and analyze spending for income tax and budgeting purposes.
I don't really care about managing a portfolio with real time data through internet connectivity, nor do I need to make financial investment decisions.

In MS Money 2007, I am able to open my MS Money 2002 file and everything is great except for one difference that is causing me fits. I like to put all my Bills in the bill section and then I can easily see what the balance is going to be in my account after all those bills go through to make sure I have enough money (Shift+Click), but it seems that starting in MS Money 2006, that functionality was taken away. I am not aware of a way to select multiple bills to see the balance after paying all of them. [more inside]

I need to know what my options are for moving this thing, given that I have a negative net worth. Can I roll it into another brokerage-style Rollover IRA at a brokerage firm, not a bank, and avoid the money laundering law stuff? Or am I relegated to Bank IRAs until I'm out of school debt? Do I suck it up and take the $75/month hit until I can start depositing money again (I don't know when that will be), and hope that the investments make up the difference in the long run? I haven't lost as much as most in my portfolio, and I know I have time to make up the losses, the monthly fee just seems like an unnecessary loss I should be able to avoid. [more inside]
