Hello! I'm Phyllis C. Borzi, Assistant Secretary of Labor for the Employee Benefits Security Administration at the U.S. Department of Labor. Thanks for subscribing to my update for consumers and those interested in retirement issues.
I know many of you plan to get your finances organized, but just never seem to get around to it. That's why, as part of National Financial Capability Month, we are hosting a webcast that will help you do just that.
The Employee Benefits Security Administration and the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc. (CFP Board) have some new online tools that can help you get organized, make informed decisions, and plan for a more secure financial future, including a secure retirement.
If you join us for the "Savings Fitness: A Guide to Your Money and Your Financial Future" webcast on April 23, 2014 from 2:00 to 3:15 pm EDT, you will get information that will help you set short- and long-term financial goals, calculate your net worth, estimate how much you need to save for retirement, develop a budget or cash flow spending plan, and organize your debt so you can plan how to pay it down.
Sometimes we all need a nudge to get started on the things we know are important, so let's do this together. Join us for the free April 23, 2014 webcast and make April 2014 your own personal financial capability month.
