Find out the answers to these questions:

  • AFTER SCHOOL: how can I find my dream job? How can I afford to work my dream job with my huge college debt load? Are there other choices besides working whatever comes my way so I can pay the bills?
  • THRU MID-CAREER: how can I grow my career, pay for the family, take care of my parents, and still find something to put away for retirement and have a bit of fun to boot? I am so squished!
  • AT THE TOP: I'm at the top of my career…so what do I do next?...and how do I afford doing it?
  • RETIRED: I have plenty of money, but what do I do with my time? OR I'm afraid that I will outlive my savings—what can I do to prevent that from happening while still enjoying my life today?

These groups come together once a year to stress the importance of financial literacy, inform consumers about where they can get help and provide free educational seminars and activities throughout the week. Programming is offered to all demographics and income levels and covers all facets of personal finance from establishing a budget to first time home buying to estate planning. The effort was created by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago in 2002. Money Smart Week partners will be hosting their events April 20 - 27, 2013.
