The AFCPE Blog is designed to provide new and insightful personal finance information for financial professionals – information that can be shared with both clients and consumers and provides new insights into education and practice.
Credit, Retirement, Saving
Saving for retirement has always been a challenge, but it's harder than ever for many Americans today. One in three people have no retirement savings at all, and more than half of all adults have saved $10,000 or less.
While a penny may not seem like much, it can be a powerful tool to teach valuable financial education lessons – while not breaking your own bank. Teach your children the value of every penny and the impact that each cent makes toward a financially secure future.
Both AFCPE & NEFE envision a future where people are empowered to achieve financial well-being through quality information and services. As a result of these overlapping visions, there is much common ground in our work.
When you teach financial concepts, how do you help your clients or audience understand the concept?
