>> did you know that 84% of americans currently have financial concerns and nearly half struggle to meet household expenses every single month. that's according to a recent study by clear voice research. so we reached out to you, our viewers, to find out your biggest money concerns. here to help us out, money in minute is the host of the sole money process, i love that, financial clint tore to o, the magazine. good morning. >> good morning. >> this is relatable for just about everybody here. you will help us out. we have a timer. we present the question. then will you run with it. >> i am. >> you got it? >> i have a minute. >> the first question, should we pay down debt, student loents, car loans, first or put the extra money towards retirement?
you save for retirement, think of paying down debt at the same it can be done. first tamron with your debt, look at all of your debt. put the minimum on everything so you are not falling behind the debt with the highest interest rate put a little more so you get out of that quicker. if you need more help the national foundation for credit counseling is a great resource. as for retirement, make sure you are saving as little as possible, just $10 a day can amass hundreds of thousands in we can invest on the mobile app, acorn, hook it up to a bank account or credit card, every account you spend round it up to the next dollar. put it in a diversified retirement portfolio for you on the go, automatically. >> i love that. have you 12 seconds. >> all right w. acorn, it's a diversified portfolio, 7,000 different assets. it caters to your age and risk tolerance. very popular.
next question is about emergency savings. we are living beyond our means, we need an emergency savings and are thinking about transferring our credit card balance to another credit card to gain breathing room. we're feeling overwhelmed about the best strategy to save for our future. hit the clock. >> first, i want to say, emergency savings is critical. it's ideal to get to a six-to-nine month kuchlgs i like zero percent balance transfer cars. keep in interest rates expire after 12, 15 months. so it's critical you get on a debt payoff plan within that time frame. after that, you see the interest rates skyrocket. are back to where you are, maybe wars off or able to save. keep that in mind. with zero transfer cards, there may be a fee of two to three percent sometimes nothing, it pays to shop around. go to bankrate.com.
accounts, you could lose history, credit littles, that could negatively impact your credit score. >> have you 13 seconds on the clock. >> really, another thing ability mortgages saving, like investing, start small. get in the habit of saving. it's a behavior. >> all right. that question by the way is from felicia in new york. moving on now, suzanne, massachusetts, i'm looking to buy a house but feel i should boost my credit score first. what itself the best way to do this? start the clock. >> so weno are struggling with housing payments. this is a smart question. she wants to boost her credit score to qualify for a mortgage with a low interest rate that will reduce her housing payment. right now, those paying the best interest rates on mortgages have a credit score of 760 or higher. so here's a really cool trick. i've done this. it can boost your score relatively quickly. call your credit card issueer. have you the best history, ask
ask them for 15 or $20,000. if you have a good relationship. you have been paying your bills an time. they may be able do this over the phone, see your credit score jump. good advice for everybody, pay all your bills on time. it's the biggest variable. boom. >> that's how you the it in under a minute. coming up, kids awards are great. but i'm more than just a trophy. i'm moving forward...

this is an nbc news special report. here's matt lauer and savannah guthrie. >> it's 10:30 here on the east coast, 7:30 out west. this is an nbc news special report. unfolding right now in hoboken, new jersey. a new jersey transit train crashing into the terminal there. at least three people confirmed dead, more than 100 others injured. we're told that a number of them are critically injured. >> this of course happened at the height of rush hour earlier this morning. we're already seeing images of terrible destruction. witnesses are speaking out this morning and sharing stories of chaos and panic. >> everything was typical.
there wasn't enough space for everyone to get into the first car, so fortunately i was stuck in the middle. myself and about six other people were in between the cars. we approached the station, and the train just felt like it never stopped. it didn't slow down. it didn't -- it didn't brake. i mean, i don't know for sure if it didn't brake or what was happening. so as soon as the train just kept going, there was -- the people started yelling. and the people that were standing in between on the other side, on the second -- in the second car, getting ready to come out of that door, were thrown on to our side. a young lady actually that was thrown from that, her legs caught between the doors just as soon as it was about to make that full stop. but we were able to pull her up fortunately, and the gentleman
people, but he had a gash in his forehead. he hadn't known he was bleeding. i didn't fall, fortunately, because there were people in front of me. >> you can hear the fear in her voice. one of the survivors. at least three dead, 100 injured in this train crash this morning. >> and that view from above gives you a really good idea of what this situation is. this isn't a through station. this is a terminal. these tracks come to an end at that specific point in hoboken. if a train comes in and does not track, in this case right into the terminal building. >> while we're already hearing these differing accounts of how much, if any, the train had slowed, let's go to our correspondent rehema ellis, our correspondent. what are you hearing? >> good morning. we're standing in what police are calling a staging area. i can see the waiting room of the terminal where that train crashed into. there are emergency vehicles
responders are all around, trying to secure this area in terms of getting the injured away from the area. as you've pointed out, witnesses, some of them, passengers on this train were able towalk walk away, others w not. i spoke to one woman in the third car of the train. she said it happened really fast. she said everybody in the third car was jolted. some people were standing because they were about to get off the train. and she said it was crazy. and crying. and she said she was able to brace herself because she was still sitting, so she put her hands on the backseat of the seat in front of her, and she was jolted in place. she was able to walk away from this. her concern, she said, is that so many other people may not have been able to walk away. the first thing she did when she got out of the car, she said she called her loved ones to let
grateful for the fact she was able to walk away from this, savannah. as she pointed out, so many others were not. we are still waiting for a press briefing here. we're told a short time from now, officials will give us more information on the extent of this accident. we don't know how fast the train was going, but we do know that it was approaching this terminal because this is the last stop, as matt was saying. this is where people are to get off. some of them were standing, and that made it even worse. that the people who were in the front car -- remember, she was in the third car. she felt that people in the front car may have taken the biggest of the burden in terms of the injuries. savannah? >> and there may have been people on the platform as well right there. ra h rehema, thank you very much. >> tom costello going to look at the investigation side. obviously first they take care of the injured, then figure out what happened.
engineer survived the impact, would be to talk to that person. >> that's absolutely right. what was he or she doing? were they paying attention? what did they see? was the equipment operating normally? i got to tell you, i've ridden this train many times. i used to live in new jersey and took that train into manhattan. to come in that fast into hoboken station i find to be rather strange because normally you crawl into hoboken station. it's a very slow snail's pace. so fast that it literally rammed right into the station and caused such terrible structural damage and of course so many people injured and potentially killed. we do also know that this line on new jersey transit does not have that automatic braking system called positive train control. that's been a big issue, as you know, for the last dozen years or so following major train crashes, really, from california to new york. but on the new jersey transit
so clearly this will probably ramp up the discussion about whether that should have been in place. but you have to wonder, why would the engineer be realizing as he or she was coming into that station and having presumably done this many times before, that you've got to slow down. there are many warning signs and speed signs. >> and by the way, nobody on the platform that we've heard from -- we heard from a witness a second ago -- said there was any horn blaring or warning from that train. priority would be to speak to the engineer, if that is possible. also, these trains have what is referred to as a black box, don't they, tom? >> they absolutely do. on many of these trains -- now, i cannot speak to specifically what equipment was on this particular train. but many trains do have the equivalent of a black box that allow them to immediately know the speed, whether there were any brakes applied, what the speed was coming out or going into a turn, all of that is going to be critically important.
tom costello, as always, thank you very much. the ntsb has officially launched a go team to get to that scene. >> so once again, a chaotic scene in hoboken, new jersey, across the river from new york city. three dead, perhaps as many as a hundred injured. we'll return you to "today." made fish oil. because i trust their quality. they were the first to have a product verified by usp. an independent organization that sets strict quality and purity standards. nature made. don't let dust and allergens get between you and life's beautiful moments. flonase gives you more complete allergy relief. most allergy pills only control one inflammatory substance. flonase controls 6. and six is greater than one. flonase changes everything. ? well? i love it. this piece is so you. i know, right? i saw it and i was just like "oh, i have to have it..." is it suede? it's suede. i love suede. state farm knows that every one those moments, there's one of these...

talk about it. >> this is such a classic broadway play. was it something you thought, i got to do this? >> it was a no brainer for me. jack o'brien our fabulous director called me last february i believe yeah, it was all i could think about. >> they called it vulgar in 1988. one ve view said it was a vulgar play. of course, that was 1988. has it evolved or story? >> it's the same stuff. in terms of the language, it was shocking. tennessee williams said it was the play that uncorsetted broadway. because of the subject matter and the language. >> it's the chicago criminal
story. how does it endure? why does it endure? >> i think it's a massively constructed play, a three-act play, which they don't do anymore. certainly, there was the charles macarthur, i don't know if we said that the writers that came from this world. so it's a very authentic, gritty feel and yet george s. kauffman what is the it's an incredibly funny and satisfying piece of theater. >> this thing a critique of the media, bureaucracy, it still holds up? >> absolutely, like any great piece of art, it reflects shot. >> 1978 when you first worked together? >> that's right. >> same guy, are you sitting

tries to get passengers who may have been injured, get them help and to assess exactly what happened and the extent of the injuries and the damage. >> and rehema, i want to say, i am being told this where many tracks come to an end. so it is truly a terminal and when you say that train didn't come to a stop, it would have had nowhere else to go but off the end of the track and right into that terminal build something. >> that seems to be exactly the ways here, i'm not on the scene, what i can see is chaotic. people have been forced to not go into the area, including me,
run as fast as i can into the area be you you are right. it's an area where the trains, they converge here, coming into the train station. it's the new jersey transit commuter train. it is above ground and the train just didn't stop and plowed right into that passenger terminal. >> obviously, traveling at a pretty high rate of speed based on the damage we are seeing. i also want to bring in tom costello. he covers transportation for us. to happens is the ntsb, they send teams there quickly? >> reporter: that is right, immediate concern is evacuating all of the injured, treating the injured and trying to determine what happened. this will become a federal railroad investigation as you suggested and then the ntsb in cooperation with the federal railroad association. one big concern is this train and this system have positive
our initial suggestion from a federal authorities is there is no positive train control. you may remember you and i could have had 18 months ago that occurred on a stretch of track and the train derailed in an excessive speed. it's essentially an oumt u all breaking system. it breaks the train if the engineer fales to do so as the train approaches the course, some s zone or slow down zone and in philadelphia, we have 200 plus injured and eight dead. we are hoping that we don't have anywhere near that scenario here. but the immediate concern that federal radio authorities have had for years is the slow rollout of this all breaking system. why have various systems been slow to put it into effect when
and in this early federal authority there is no no positive train control on this track. >> keep in mind, there would have been people on that train and standing near that platform. this could be mechanical error, human error. too soon to rule out anything including a potential deliberating a. again the investigation will come after the rescue operations take place to find out who may be trapped on that platform and our thanks to tom costello and rehema ellis. we will have the latest on msnbc and nbcnews.com. most of you going back to regular scheduled programing. i'm matt lew lauer in, no this has been an nbc news special report. ? new life attracts sometimes ? ? all at once ?
