CRA Week: Focus on Financial Planning

During our week-long celebration of CRA, we have discussed budget tips and offered some resources for small businesses. Today, we’re looking at overall financial planning.

There are many different directions that financial planning can take us, from retirement to college planning and basic savings. Here are a few links that might help with a few of those areas.

In August, we examined how a college education can improve your earning potential. The following week, we discussed some ways to pay for higher education.

Yahoo! Finance has a tab in their personal finance section devoted to retirement.

The Wall Street Journal‘s MarketWatch.com also has a retirement section.

The US Treasury‘s website – TreasuryDirect.gov – has wonderful resources available regarding both education and retirement planning.

PopularTips “Live & Money” section offers personal finance advice on a frequent basis as well.

Finally, our branches work with financial consultants, many of whom offer email newsletters that provide great insight on a number of topics. To find out more about these newsletters, speak with your local branch.
