Financial Planning Day

We’ve all heard that there’s no free lunch, but in these challenging economic times, Hampton Roads-area residents will be able to get free financial planning advice and guidance from professional financial planners at Virginia Beach Financial Planning Day.  The event will be held on October 22nd at Virginia Beach Convention Center and  will feature experts from the Financial Planning Association® and highly qualified Certified Financial Planner™ professionals, all volunteering their time and expertise to work with local residents one-on-one to address important financial issues. 

Financial planners will be set up at their own tables to meet one-on-one with attendees to answer questions on budgeting, getting out of debt, income taxes, dealing with mortgage foreclosures, paying for college, estate planning and insurance, among many other topics.  The advice will be offered on a “no strings attached” basis and planners will not give out business cards or sell financial products or services.
