Current Personal Finance Issues for Financial Practitioners

What were some “hot button” personal finance issues in 2014 that will continue to be of interest to consumers and financial practitioners in 2015? 

Some key topics include increasing rates of personal data hacking and tax refund identity theft, implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), new highs for the DJIA and S&P 500 stock market indices, and continued economic fallout from the Great Recession. This 90-minute webinar will present a “Financial Year in Review” with 2014 updates on a variety of personal finance topics and 2015 previews of expected changes in tax laws, government regulations, and financial products and services. Dr. Barbara O'Neill will address these issues and more in this 90-minute session on behalf of the Military Families Learning Network.
