Managing your finances can seem challenging when you are finishing up college or just starting out.  In this webcast, you will learn the five steps to get off to a good financial start - how to create a budget, repay your student loans, think like a saver and stay out of debt, invest for the future, and make the most of employee benefits from your job.

The U.S. Department of Labor will be joined by speakers from the Consumer Federation of America/America Saves, the National Endowment for Financial Education, and the Society for Financial Education and Professional Development.  We’ll help you get started with information to achieve your financial goals, whether short-term, like paying off credit card debt and student loans, or saving for a long-term goal, such as retirement. By getting a good financial start, you can get time on your side so you can do the things you want to do in the future.
