What's This For?A myriad of studies show that a majority of Americans know very little about personal finance and why or how to save for retirement. Most cannot accurately explain what a mutual fund or annuity is, have never met with a financial advisor and have no financial plan for their future. That's why your employer is providing this online series of financial literacy workshops to its employees.
When you are financially literate, you improve your ability to live within your means no matter how your salary changes or the condition of the economy. Understanding how to manage your finances and being able to plan and save for your future increases your sense of well-being, happiness and hope. Plus, as an educator, educational staff member or nonprofit employee, you have access to some of the best retirement plans available today. So sit back and enjoy the workshops.
