If you are planning on making a New Years resolution, the United Way recommends that you take a look at your finances.

The United Way’s Financial Stability Partnership will be holding a six week course called, "Planning Your Financial Future."
The course features a local financial planner, and will discuss topics retirement options, mortgages and debt, and also tax tips.
FSP Coordinator Amy Davis said the course is designed to help maximize your money at any age.

" We’ve had individuals who have just come out of college, who have very small income, individuals closer to retirement, who may have a larger income. It doesn’t matter where you are in your career, or where you are in your life, a lot of these decisions pertain no matter how much." said Davis

This program is in its third year of operation.
The classes will meet on Tuesday evenings in January and February from 6:00PM – 8:00PM at the Zanesville-Muskingum County Health Department.
Davis said people from any kind of financial background can benefit from the course.

"It’s very helpful, very useful information. It’s a lot of fun." Davis said. "You can come in and be able to talk openly. We’re not going to ask you about your personal finances, but a lot of people are willing to share some of those stories, and talk to each other, and you get a lot of ideas from each other, so it’s a lot of great financial concepts."

The cost of the class is $30.00 and covers all of the course materials.

The deadline to register is January 9th, 2012.
