Free Financial Advice for Americans Nationwide During Sixth Annual Financial Planning Days

October 2015By CFP Board

In these uncertain economic times, Americans nationwide will have the opportunity to get competent financial advice at no cost and with no strings attached. Between October 3 and November 7, twenty two Financial Planning Days will be held in cities across the U.S. On those days, hundreds of CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professionals will partner with local city governments and gather in designated schools, municipal buildings, and libraries to offer free financial counsel to area residents.

In its sixth year, Financial Planning Days is a joint endeavor by Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc. (CFP Board), Financial Planning Association® (FPA®), Foundation for Financial Planning and the U.S. Conference of Mayors. Kiplinger’s Personal Finance is the national media sponsor for Financial Planning Days. The mission of the initiative is to bring free, ethical financial planning advice to the public through one-on-one advising sessions and group workshops. Highly qualified CFP® professionals will volunteer their time and offer “no-strings-attached” advice. These professionals will not distribute business cards, take names, or sell financial products or services.

In one-on-one consultations, financial planners are seated at tables and meet privately with individuals and couples to answer questions on budgeting, managing credit, getting out of debt, income taxes, home ownership, planning and paying for college, estate planning, insurance and many other topics. Free classroom-style workshop presentations covering key areas of personal finance are also available.
