Thank you to Odessa Santiago and Jaime Gangone from the Credit Union of New Jersey and all of those who attended the “Women and Money: Are You Covered?” seminar this past Monday. The program covered tips and resources for women to maintain financial security in the face of a variety of situations and life-changing events. From building and managing personal credit to safeguarding your identity and finances from identity left, there are many things to think about and prepare for as a woman in the 21st century.
Please visit the Credit Union of New Jersey’s website, www.cunj.org, for a variety of services and programs aimed to help everyone become financially independent and safe.
Here are some other online resources for women regarding financial management:
http://www.wife.org/ – WIFE, the Women’s Institute for Financial Education, provides a variety of resources and programs aimed at strengthening a woman’s financial independence. Whether you are looking to build up credit, need financial planning advice for the future, or intimidated by the divorce process, WIFE has the resources and contacts you need to succeed. Cohabiting couples and property rights do not automatically have financial claims against each other. However, where a property is owned by one or both of the couple, they may have a potential claim under the Trusts of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act 1996 (TOLATA).
For the purposes of this blog, I am going to focus upon the cohabiting couple’s home.
http://www.wiserwomen.org/index.php?id=38 – The National Resource Center on Women and Retirement Planning, a special project of WISER (Women’s Institute for a Secure Retirement), focuses on providing women all the necessary resources, tools, and strategies needed surrounding retirement.
