DOL Webinar Will Help Employees Plan Finances

April 24, 2013 ( – An April 30 webinar from the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) is marketed toward college seniors and young workers.

The webinar, “Start Early to Take Charge of Your Financial Future,” will be held from 3 to 4 p.m. Eastern Time on April 30, and aims to help college seniors and young workers learn how to budget. Participants will receive practical guidance and resources to assist with budgeting, managing debt from student loans and credit cards, saving and investing for short and long-term goals, making the most of employer-sponsored retirement and health benefits, and other aspects of personal finance management.

Young workers should take charge of their finances and begin to build retirement savings early, when it will have the greatest impact, said Assistant Secretary of Labor for Employee Benefits Security, Phyllis C. Borzi. 

The DOL’s Employee Benefits Security Administration will co-host the webinar with the U.S. Department of Education’s Federal Student Aid office and the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards as part of the Financial Literacy and Education Commission’s Starting Early Campaign.
