Celebrate Money Smart Week with Weiss Financial Ratings!

by Noelle Williams, Reference Coordinator

Did you know that April 10 to April 17 is Money Smart Week? It’s the perfect time to learn how to better invest and spend your money wisely. The library has just the perfect financial tool to help!

Weiss Financial Ratings is a free online resource that allows you to learn how to budget, start a 401(k), buy health insurance and more.  You can learn the basics of how to buy a home or how to protect yourself from identity theft. You can also learn about different forms of investing, the types of fees involved and how to work with a financial advisor.

Weiss is a unique online tool because it provides not only information, but a financial strength rating system for stocks, insurance companies, banks and more. You can find out how your bank or auto insurance company ranks with Weiss! Seniors can also find the ratings for Medigap insurance plans to see if they are getting the best value for their money.

To get started with Weiss Financial Ratings, visit the online library! Weiss, as well as other financial tools, are available 24/7 with a library card. And if you need help getting started, feel free to ask a reference librarian!
