Today's Family

The past few months have been difficult for those with dependents at home — including parents with adult children who have temporarily moved back in. But there has never been a better time for Americans to reassess their budgets, financial priorities and long-term goals.

Family Finances

Working out how much money you need for everyday essentials like food, housing, utilities, transportation and medical services can help you make sure you and your family have enough for unexpected expenses and emergencies.

Investing in Your Child's Future

Have you thought about how you can help your kids become prepared for their own financial future? There are a few things parents can do now to financially prepare their kids for the future.

Protecting Your Family

Being a responsible parent also means ensuring your child is taken care of in the future, no matter what happens to you.

Planning for College

College is the last educational expense you’ll have to pay for your child, but it’s the first one you should think about. Although few families can save enough to fully pay a college bill, it makes sense to save as much as possible given your family’s financial position in order to minimize college borrowing in the future.

Teaching Kids about Money

Teaching your children to be financially responsible is one of life’s critical lessons. As your children mature, you will have many opportunities to teach them about good financial management, from kindergarten to adulthood.
