Managing Personal Finances in Uncertain Times

During these challenging economic times, it is important to have fact-based information about financial management. The national eXtension network provides critical resources to help you manage credit, save for children’s education, plan for retirement, and deal with emerging crises such as layoffs and health challenges. The Personal Finance programs are a free resource developed by leading experts from land grant universities across the county. All information is independent of the commercial finance industry.
