Spring Clean Your Budget
(60 second audio script)
Spring is officially here; people everywhere are doing their spring cleaning. But what about dusting off your long-term financial plan? April happens to be National Financial Literacy Month — the perfect time to spring into action when it comes to planning your financial future. More than half of workers report they’ve saved less than $25,000 and 29 percent have less than $1,000 saved for the future. If you haven’t started already, now’s the time to begin saving for your retirement — no matter what your age. A good place to start is by spending a few minutes with Social Security’s Retirement Estimator to get an instant and personalized estimate of your future retirement benefits.
