Get Smart About Money With the New SAM


In July, Smart About Money ( ) launched a redesigned website, making it mobile responsive for better viewing on smartphones and tablets and adding free online financial education coursework. In addition to articles, calculators and worksheets, the new SAM features:

Three in-depth learning modules: Emergency Fund Plan, Housing Plan and Transportation Plan. These self-selected, self-paced courses help users make empowered decisions to improve their financial lives.

Five Money Basics courses form the foundation for fundamental personal finance concepts, including Credit/Debt, Employment, Insurance, Investing and Spending/Saving.

A new section called Common Money Questions gives guidance on some common scenarios, including what to do in times of transition and crisis.

Check out the new SAM at and look for more courses to be added in 2016-2017.
