Karin Bonding, Finance Professor at the U.Va. McIntire School of Commerce, will discuss “Improving Your Fiscal Health” at the Institute on Aging’s next “Aging 101.”

The lecture takes place on April 20 at 3:00 at the Doubletree Hotel Charlottesville.

Karin BondingProfessor Bonding, Chartered Financial Analyst, will address the need for advance planning.  She stresses the importance of having both a trust and a will because “there is no bigger burden on your children than not knowing your wishes.”

Her advice also includes taking a regular “fiscal health day.”

According to Bonding, “educating the public about personal finance is very important.  At any time, people can become anxious about their finances due to looming retirement and other changes.”

Professor Bonding’s audiences praise her ability to present financial information in an accessible and fun way.

Bonding is a tireless advocate of financial education and empowerment.  She lectures frequently to University alumni, faculty and staff about retirement and savings options.

In recognition of her education and outreach efforts, Bonding was one of five recipients of the 2008-2009 Outstanding Faculty Alumni Education Award.
