Welcome to Money Management U!

How much time do employees at your firm spend dealing with, or just worrying about, their personal finances?

According to a recent Texas Poll, nearly 30 percent of Texas employees spend six or more work hours a week on personal finance. With the holidays coming, personal finance is likely to assume an even more prominent role in everyone’s minds as we contemplate buying gifts, preparing holiday meals, traveling to visit family and other holiday activities.

In order to help staff members keep their minds on their jobs, not their checkbooks, the Texas Society of Certified Public Accountants (TSCPA) is launching Money Management U., a statewide employee enrichment program offering free personal finance resources for the workplace.

Money Management U. materials cover a variety of personal finance topics including identity theft, home buying, credit card debt, and educating children about money. Among the resources available are:

  • articles for employee newsletters and/or company intranets
  • table tents
  • flyers
  • paycheck inserts

In addition, companies can request CPA speakers for employee seminars on personal finance topics.

Money Management U. resources can be downloaded for free from the TSCPA’s consumer web site at www.ValueYourMoney.org.
