COMMON COUNCIL PRESIDENT MICHAEL J. MURPHY invites residents to attend the 2015 MILWAUKEE FINANCIAL PLANNING DAY on SATURDAY, OCTOBER 24, to receive free financial counseling from professional Certified Financial Planners ™.
THE EVENT WILL BEGIN AT 10:00 A.M. (AND END AT 5:00 P.M.) AT DESTINY YOUTH PLAZA, 7210 N. 76TH ST. (N. 76TH AND W. GOOD HOPE). THE EVENT IS FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
President Murphy, former longtime chair of the Common Council’s Finance and Personnel Committee (and also a longtime member and chair of the city’s Annuity and Pension Board), said the opportunity to receive free advice from Certified Financial Planners ™ should not be missed.
“Residents will be able to get free advice and counseling about important financial issues including: getting out of debt, retirement planning, investment strategies, income taxes, insurance, mortgages and foreclosures, among many issues,” said President Murphy, who last year sponsored legislation authorizing the city’s role as a sponsor/partner in Milwaukee Financial Planning Day.
The day will provide free, no strings attached one-on-one financial counseling and informative presentations, and credit reports will be made available to anyone who attends. Workshop sessions will cover budgeting, credit and debt, planning for retirement, mortgage savings, saving for college and more.
The event is sponsored by THE CITY OF MILWAUKEE and the FINANCIAL PLANNING ASSOCIATION OF SOUTHERN WI, with local partners WISCONSIN WOMEN’S BUSINESS INITIATIVE CORP. (WWBIC), AARP WISCONSIN and MAKE A DIFFERENCE WISCONSIN.
