Safeguard Your Savings

If you’ve been thinking about investing your money, but are not sure where to start or are afraid of making a mistake, then sign up for a free Safeguard Your Savings workshop near you.

Educating yourself is the first step in protecting your investments.

Safeguard Your Savings covers the basics of saving and investing for people of all ages, including:

  • getting started
  • financial markets
  • making an investment plan
  • how to avoid investment fraud

Safeguard Your Savings is sponsored by the Missouri Secretary of State. The curriculum was created and funded by the Investor Protection Trust, a nonprofit organization that provides objective information to help consumers make informed investment decisions. The workshop is taught by University of Missouri Extension family financial education specialists.

For more information about protecting your hard-earned money, call the Missouri Securities Division Investor Protection hotline at 1-800-721-7996 or go to the website at http://www.sos.mo.gov/securities/mipc/. You can also get information from the MU Office for Financial Success
