MyMoney.gov

Many — myself included — bewail the absence of basic personal financial management education in our schools. I, for one, had to rely on my Dad for a few hasty lessons on how to manage a checking account, before I set off for college.

Of course, that was before the Internet.

MyMoney.gov is one site I recommend your taking some time to review. It isn’t the be-all or end-all, but it’s a worthy basic resource, whatever your stage in life. Topics include saving and investing, managing debt and credit, saving for retirement, scams and fraud, and more.

Too basic for you? Perhaps you have children or other younger family members who could benefit.

From the site’s home page: “MyMoney.gov is the U.S. government’s Web site dedicated to teaching all Americans the basics about financial education. Whether you are buying a home, balancing your checkbook, or investing in your 401(k), the resources on MyMoney.gov can help you maximize your financial decisions. Throughout the site, you will find important information from 20 Federal agencies and Bureaus designed to help you make smart financial choices.”
