The Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago is teaming up with the Financial Planning Association® (FPA®) as part of the expansion of Money Smart Week®. To help individuals learn how to plan and manage their finances wisely, FPA members, the financial planning experts, will volunteer to deliver unbiased, objective financial education and advice to individuals during the scheduled week.

The Financial Planning Association® (FPA®) connects those who need, support and deliver financial planning. FPA has a variety of resources that state planning teams can request to help launch successful Money Smart Week events in their communities.
A nationwide network of nearly 100 chapters is the lifeblood of FPA. Each chapter promotes the advancement of knowledge in financial planning; supporting programs and projects that help Americans learn the benefits of financial planning.
FPA Chapters are able to help state planning teams identify and secure financial planning experts from FPA that can assist in providing objective, unbiased financial education and advice through educational seminars and/or one-on-one financial planning counseling sessions. They may also be able to assist in coordination of events.
