Why Retirement Education is Important
If you’re like most Americans, you unknowingly learned your financial and lifestyle habits from your parents, spouse, or friends. You probably obtained the majority of your “financial education” through marketing collateral produced by financial services firms trying to sell you financial products (car loans, mortgages, insurance, mutual funds, or annuities).
Most of us are not financially prepared.
Due to recent changes in tax laws, revised social security policies, and a shift toward employee-directed retirement plans, the need for financial and retirement education has never been greater.
Objective Financial Education
