Family Conversations about Money

Did your parents ever say, “no money talk at the dinner table”? It’s a tough conversation to have, especially with loved ones whose feelings you care about deeply. Take this course to learn strategies that will open the door to financial conversations with your partner and children of various age groups. Plus, you’ll discover four habits that can help your family create financial stability.

Car Loans

Buying a car is a huge financial commitment, and it can be intimidating to search for a lender, whether going into a dealership or comparing banks online. Our Car Loans course explains the details of an auto loan and prepares you for the application so you can organize all documents in advance for a smoother process. There’s even a calculator to evaluate your budget!

Becoming a Financial Caregiver

Being a financial caregiver is a heavy responsibility, and there are lots of expectations to consider before signing on to this role. In this course, you’ll explore how to become a caregiver, how to manage income and medical expenses, and which legal actions may be applicable for longer-term care.

Considering Homeownership

In 2021, the housing market reached a record-high level of activity, and low inventory caused serious bidding wars. Homeownership is a dream for many, but it is a costly, sometimes draining process. Take this course to better understand a mortgage and how it will impact your monthly expenses, as well as debunk myths of buying versus renting.

Checking Accounts

Checking accounts are a simple way to manage everyday expenses, like groceries, bills, and other necessary payments. This course details the benefits of a checking account as well as the features to search for when you’re going to open a new, or your first, account.
