Managing your money

BOSTON (WWLP) – Making a big purchase, like on a car or a home, can be stressful.  That’s why state officials have launched a campaign aimed to help you manage your finances.

The State House celebrated its first annual Financial Capability Day supporting MassSaves, a program that offers financial services for Massachusetts residents. MassSaves connects people in need of financial advice with more than 200 FREE resources that will help you draw out goals and map out a plan to achieve them.

“We don’t just do savings, we actually do all kinds of financial capability training and support, asset development, that means helping people create savings accounts to go to school, to buy cars, to buy a home, and even to do professional development,” said program director Nika Elugardo.

Nika told 22News she believes the campaign will help Massachusetts become a national model for financial security.
