Sokolov-Miller Center now hosting two webinars per month

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — It might be the start of a new academic year, but few have a clean slate when it comes to personal finances.

The Sokolov-Miller Family Financial and Life Skills Center has already begun its new schedule of webinars and will be increasing its open educational sessions to twice per month. Webinars from the Center are available to all members of the Penn State community at no cost.

The webinar slated for noon on Tuesday, Sept. 11, will cover budgeting and be available through a Zoom link.

Tuesday’s session will explain how to establish SMART goals to make sure financial efforts are specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and timely. Presenters will also explain how to collect and organize financial information in order to get a clear picture of your personal situation. Finally, the webinar will cover how to track money coming in and out, and how to review cash flow and set up a budget.

All webinars are open to all members of the Penn State community at all campuses, including faculty, staff, students and alumni. Access the "MoneyCounts: A Financial Literacy Series" Self-Study Modules through this link for an overview of each webinar topic.

It’s the center’s mission to provide financial and life skills education to all members of the Penn State community and help them enjoy financial security and freedom.

The Sept. 25 webinar will cover the basics of credit cards. Throughout the rest of the calendar year, the center will present on student loans, identity theft, debt management and federal income tax.
