Events to get you on the path to financial stability will be held all over the country from 13-19 October as part of Money Week.

Money Week, a joint initiative of the Commission for Financial Literacy and Retirement Income and Sorted, is held annually to motivate Kiwis to look at their personal financial situation.

Retirement Commissioner Diane Maxwell said worrying about money “erodes mental bandwidth, confidence, energy and optimism”.

"Building financial stability builds our own personal capability and allows us the space to plan our lives. But it means knowing where you want to get to, what success looks like and having a plan to get there,” she said.

Banks, budget advisors, community groups, workplaces and schools have been involved in planning events. You can find what’s happening near you at moneyweek.org.nz.
