Build a firm fiscal foundation with upcoming financial literacy webinars

Life & Work Connections
February 22, 2021

Maybe you've heard that you're supposed to be planning for retirement, but you don’t know where to begin. Or you're ready to save for a more reliable car, a down payment on a house and a big anniversary trip, but you’re not sure how to prioritize those goals. Or perhaps you're eager to break in to the world of investing.

You'll have ample opportunity to explore best practices for managing your money this spring and summer, thanks to Fidelity Investments and TIAA, the University of Arizona's retirement account vendors. In coordination with Life & Work Connections, the two companies are offering a wide slate of live financial literacy webinars to University employees.

You do not need an account with either vendor to attend.

If you have a burning question for a financial expert, be sure to check out the Q&A session with Fidelity on March 31. You’re welcome to submit questions in advance to by March 19, or to ask in the session.

If you can't make it to a particular discussion, or if you want to dive deeper into a topic not covered in a webinar, you're always welcome to make an appointment for a one-on-one financial planning consultation. This is one of your benefits as a University of Arizona employee – again, no account required.
