Secretary of Banking and Securities Robin L. Wiessmann recently announced a new online resource available to working adults designed to help them achieve personal financial capability and independence.

“Providing access to high quality, noncommercial resources that help people learn and take advantage of financial products and services can help Pennsylvanians reach financial independence and build their financial futures,” Wiessmann said.

The Department of Banking and Securities has launched “Your Annual Financial Checkup,” a checklist of seven steps anyone can use to access and review important financial information. In the same way individuals are encouraged to seek an annual health screening as part of maintaining their physical health, an annual financial checkup on issues such as credit reports, medical and insurance information, and banking status can help working adults reach long-term goals and identify and avoid potential problems.
