Financial Fitness

Who doesn't love the fun of taking a great "selfie"? But have you ever focused on something just as important: Your own financial well-being?

The Department of Employee Trust Funds is offering the Financial Fitness Challenge 2016, October 25 through December 31, to all Wisconsin Retirement System employees. The challenge is a confidential, 10-minute online survey that will teach you about your levels of financial knowledge, self-confidence, stresses and behaviors. Plus, you'll get free online tutorials and free financial coaching!

Take Control - Start and Finish the Challenge in 3 Easy Steps

Step 1. Get centered: Take the free Financial Fitness CHECKUP. It's a confidential, and secure online assessment of your financial well-being. Receive instant feedback - your personal Financial Fitness SCORE.

Step 2. Sharpen focus: Enroll in the free online Financial Fitness ACADEMY. Based on your Financial Fitness SCORE, you will be presented with recommendations for tailored, online learning tutorials (a $200 value). You can access the academy for 12 months after completion of the checkup. Using the tutorials can help improve your financial fitness. The tutorials cover topics such as debt management, budgeting, investments, and retirement planning.

Step 3. Zoom in on a bright future: If you need help with any of the tasks or topics you are trying to accomplish or learn, you may request to speak with a Financial Fitness ADVISOR free of charge for up to 30 days.
