Develop your personalized financial strategy with Flash Forward Online Challenge, campus events

It’s no secret that different stages of your life bring unique financial priorities. Whether you recently graduated or you’re halfway through your career, developing a strategy tailored to your needs is crucial to reaching the financial goals you picture in your head.

CU Employee Services has provided faculty and staff two ways to do this in February and March: the Flash Forward online challenge and campus events.

Play the Flash Forward Online Challenge, enter to win an Apple Watch

The online Flash Forward Financial Challenge, available from Feb. 16 to March 16, asks participants to take five simple challenges to increase their financial know-how. For each challenge you complete, you’ll be entered for a chance to win one of three Apple Watches. (Hint: You can complete your first challenge by attending a Flash Forward campus event.)

Attend Flash Forward and develop your personalized strategy

From Feb. 27 to March 8, join Flash Forward: A CU Financial Event on your campus. This CU employee event brings together presentations from Employee Services, Wells Fargo, TIAA, Elevations Credit Union, Public Service Credit Union, PERA and CollegeInvest to help you develop your personalized financial plan.

During the event, grab a cup of coffee and stop by financial booths to ask questions and snap up informational materials. Interactive tools and games will also be available so you can get a better picture of what your savings currently look like and estimate how they’ll grow in a voluntary savings plan.
