DIFS Releases Video Series in Conjunction with Money Smart Week
In conjunction with Money Smart Week, the Michigan Department of Insurance and Financial Services (DIFS) is releasing a new video series, “My Money and Me,” part of the Securing MI Financial Future program. In October, DIFS will spearhead the Securing Mi Financial Future (SMFF) initiative throughout the state.
Now in its third year, the SMFF initiative connects Michigan residents with trusted, non-commercial financial information and resources in one location. DIFS is committed to providing financial planning tools, information and guidance to help consumers navigate their financial challenges.
The “My Money and Me” video series brings useful instruction on how to develop a more responsible and productive relationship with money. Consumers can use the easy-to-follow worksheets that will help them identify and work through their money-related issues. Consumers will learn how to set goals, how to develop a personal spending plan and manage the financial needs of their present while planning for the financial needs of their future. After watching this series, consumers will be better equipped to manage the often strained and complicated relationship they have with money.
“Money Smart Week is a great opportunity for Michigan consumers to learn more about managing their personal finances. I encourage all consumers to utilize every resource available,” said DIFS Director Patrick McPharlin.
Funding for these videos would not be possible without the generous support from the 2015 SMFF sponsors: Michigan Credit Union League & Affiliates, Michigan Association of CPAs, Mass Mutual Michigan Metro, MB Financial Group, MSU Federal Credit Union, Michigan Bankers Association, Michigan Schools and Government Credit Union, Chemical Banks, TLC Community Credit Union, Flagstar Bank, Quicken Loans, FinancialEdge Community Credit Union and Detroit Young Professionals, among others.
