FeatureWinter Tasks: Prepare Teens for What Comes Next

This time of the year can bring about increased stress levels for adults and teens for many reasons.  Add to the mix for senior students the potential to feel overwhelmed by the college application process and life-changing decisions they ponder about the year ahead.  
 
Influential adults are in a position to apply teachable personal finance moments during this life event, and help teens consider the payoffs and trade-offs of acquiring training via military service, apprenticeship programs, two-year colleges, and four-year colleges.

There are many advantages for teens to start saving early as they learn in HSFPP Lesson 4-2: How Investing Works. 

This fact, however, is in contradiction to the reality that the entry-level jobs teens can expect to find after graduating high school rarely have a retirement benefit plan. 

The new  my RA ®  is designed specifically to close this gap, offering workers a simple, safe solution to begin saving. 
  • No cost or fees
  • No complicated investment options
  • No risk of losing money
