Bankrate's hallmark Financial Literacy
Series breaks down personal finances
into manageable pieces for the consumer.
This year we will explore four topics
of importance to our readers during
this period of economic turmoil: Focus
on Careers, Families and Finance,
How to Prosper and Retirement Income
Planning. We label these "Growth
opportunities," because all challenges
present opportunities for growth.
Check out our latest series on Retirement
Income Planning to get a handle on
how to manage your investments during
retirement. Or click around in our
new Families and Finance section if
you have children or elderly parents
that you care for. The Career series
offers lots of great ideas for landing
a good job in these recessionary times.
In the sections called "Essentials"
and "Action," learn more
about budgeting, estate planning,
credit cards, identity theft, investing,
smart borrowing and much more. Each
link leads to a table of contents
where you can choose to read the stories
that interest you.
Come back from time to time because
we keep adding to this font of personal
finance knowledge. We strive to make
finances clear, manageable and, most
of all, fun!
