The Complete Financial Management Workshop ®

Overview

During times of economic uncertainty, people recognize the need to make sound financial decisions to improve their fiscal well-being and prepare for the future. To meet this need, broad financial education has become a desirable benefit that employers can provide for their workforce.

Seventy-five percent of Americans agree that they would benefit from having basic financial education and information.

Many workers are unprepared for retirement: 54% have saved less than $25,000 for retirement, and 42% have saved less than $10,000.

When choosing a financial education course, it is important to select a program that can meet the needs of a wide variety of people. Our comprehensive workshop, The Complete Financial Management Workshop ®, is particularly well suited for working individuals who need to prepare for retirement and make sound financial decisions to help protect their families and their assets.
