If you’re in your 20s or 30s, or even in your 40s, it may feel like there are many demands on your money: rent, credit card debt, school loans, or car payments. Although it’s important to save for these expenses and other short-term goals, remember to save for your long-term goals like retirement as well. Starting early means getting time on your side!

As part of Financial Literacy Month, we want to help you get financially fit as you start your career. Join us for a webcast to learn about managing money and credit responsibly so you are prepared to make informed financial decisions. The Department of Labor Employee Benefits Security Administration will present information and tools on budgeting, saving for short and long-term goals, and making the most of employment-based retirement and health benefits. The Federal Trade Commission’s Division of Consumer & Business Education will speak on managing credit and debt, and the Department of Education’s Office of Federal Student Aid will speak on options for student loan borrowing and repayment.

The sooner you start planning and saving, the easier it will be. Get time on your side and sign up for this FREE webinar today! This Financial Literacy Month, take steps to develop the financial knowledge, skills, and habits for your long-term financial health.
