About Monetary Matters

Monetary Matters is in business for one reason:

To provide objective, unbiased money management, retirement,
     and financial education to help people take control of
    their financial lives and make informed choices.

Our clients are employers who are concerned about their employees' financial well-being -- beyond providing a paycheck.

We provide skill-based, action-oriented, interactive workshops, presentations, and web models that help individuals and families:
- Control their everyday finances.
- Get out and stay out of debt.
- "Find" the money to save.
- Estimate how much to save to achieve specific goals.
- Invest their money appropriately.
- Plan for important life events, such as retirement, housing, and college.

For many very good reasons, concerned employers DON'T need a financial education provider who is also directly or indirectly looking for individual financial planning or financial product clients. Monetary Matters is importantly unique in this area:

We do not sell or support investment, insurance,
or financial products, PERIOD!
