FINANCIAL INFO FOR WOMEN

Provided by The Simple Dollar:

They start by introducing the special challenges that many women face when it comes to building a strong financial foundation. For example, the average woman spends 12 fewer years in the full-time workforce than the average man, primarily due to child-rearing responsibilities and a greater reliance on part-time work. Women also enjoy a longer average life expectancy than men, creating a greater need for savings to fund a longer retirement. These and other challenges mean that women must take special care to begin laying the groundwork for true financial independence as early as possible.
The guide – which is completely free and instantly accessible to anyone – then goes on to cover the basics of cash flow analysis and household budgeting, two fundamental skills that are critical to maintaining financial independence over the long run. We also break down the key strategies women can use to deal with debt and save for retirement successfully.

FINDING YOUR REPRESENTATIVES

Want to find out who your representatives are?  Visit http://www.myfloridahouse.gov and click on the gray print that says “Find your representatives.”  It’s a little hard to see, but sits below the tab bar toward the top of the screen.  A text box will come up where you  need to enter your address and you will also be asked to type in the words you see in a text box to validate that you are a real person accessing the site, not a computer.  Once this is complete, the names, photos and contact information for your state and federal representatives will appear.

If you right click on the main page, you can save it on your computer for access anytime you want it
