Week 1
Your Income — What's Yours, What's Not,
Who Takes It, and Why

Paycheck deductions can be used strategically to save, reduce income taxes, and pay for employee benefits. You can manage your income and deductions (thus affecting your take-home pay) through withholding strategies. Even if your income does not come from a regular paycheck, or you’re not currently earning wages, you’ll still get a lot out of this session—and you can help your sons, daughters, or others once you complete this session.


Week 2
Managing My Resources, or, Do I Really Need to Budget?

We’ll show you how to make managing your resources as painless as possible, and maybe even get you jazzed up about it! This session is about resource management. It’s about removing the feeling of “lack” and insufficiency typically associated with budgeting. Managing your resources provides a sense of control that can greatly reduce the stress of not knowing your true financial picture. Once you see the bigger picture of how resource management enables you to achieve so many other financial goals, you may change your mind about committing to some new habits.


Week 3
Protecting What I Own — My Vehicles

While the subject of vehicle insurance could take an entire day to master, this brief session hones in on the most important information to have at hand when shopping for (or renewing) a vehicle insurance policy. If you or someone you love is injured in an auto accident, or your car is totaled, one of the saving graces in such a scenario is not having to pay for the medical bills or buy a new car out of your own pocket. This outcome is only possible when you have adequate insurance, and know what you’re buying, and what it covers. The goal of this session is to make sure you confidently understand what you’re buying, and exactly what it will do for you in case of a vehicle incident.


Week 4
Protecting I What Own – My Dwelling and My Stuff

This module boils down the huge universe of knowledge about homeowner’s insurance to reveal the most important nuggets that you need to know to purchase the protection you need. It explores home value and helps you understand how to insure your home for full replacement in the event of a loss. The goal of this session is to ensure that you know what you need to ask for when you purchase or renew a homeowner’s or renter’s insurance policy.
