Investments: Saving for College, Retirement and More

This resource guide includes links discussed during the USC Cecil Murray Center’s workshops on building wealth.

Personal Finance Empowered

CIT/OneWest Bank’s Personal Finance Empowered website provides information on savings and investing, planning and managing retirement, and paying for college. Also find out about how to buy a home and prevent elder fraud. Use their Roadmap to Financial Strength to access personalized learning according to your needs.

College Savings Resources is an independent resource for parents and financial professionals, providing them with information and tools to understand the benefits of 529 college savings plans and how they can prepare to meet the challenge of increasing college costs.

Retirement Resources is a health and wealth website dedicated to providing accurate information and research on a variety of retirement topics. Check out their guides on Medicare and Retirement After the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Additional Investment Options

Additional investment options include cryptocurrency, NFTs, shares of art, and the stock market through Robin Hood. These provide multiple streams of income but are also very volatile. Please do your education before investing in any of these streams. As with any investment, do not invest more than you can afford to lose. We will be sharing a workshop from a partner when it’s available.
