Clery Center at Security on Campus
Description: 

On Thursday, January 9, 2014 the Clery Center will host a Twitter chat from 3:00 - 4:00 PM ET. It will focus on the VAWA amendments to Clery, which afford additional rights to campus victims of sexual violence, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking. These amendments still need to go through the negotiated rulemaking process, in which the Department of Education works with representatives from affected parties to develop regulations implementing the new requirements. Join the chat using #Clerychat.

Planning for a secure retirement can be challenging, but the sooner you start the easier it will be.  It may feel like there are many demands on your income: credit card debt, school loans, car payments or your children’s education.  Although it is important to save for these short-term goals, it is important to remember to save for long-term goals like retirement as well.
 
Here is one simple way to get you on the road to financial security. Join us as we explain how you can use  EBSA’s new interactive worksheets to set goals, start a budget, manage debt, and determine how much to save for a secure financial future.
 
Our Savings Fitness webcast starts you on the way to setting goals and putting your retirement high on the list of personal priorities.
 
Who should attend?
Anyone who wants to make saving for retirement a priority!
