Tide Creek Financial Group

We have arranged for our financial education partner, The Tide Creek Financial Group, to provide individual financial coaching sessions, on campus.  These sessions were previously only available to employees who had first attended one of our financial education workshops.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to get financially organized!  If you feel that you don’t have a good sense of your financial direction, want an impartial third-party opinion on your current strategies or simply have some questions you’d like answered, a financial coaching session may be right for you.  Topics addressed include but aren’t limited to:

  • Cash flow
  • Risk management and insurance
  • Investment planning and retirement savings
  • College and major goal funding
  • Estate and beneficiary planning
  • General financial FAQs

45-minute sessions are available in-person on the dates above.  Virtual and telephone meeting are also available when necessary.  All meetings are by appointment only and will be done on a first-come, first-serve basis. 

Sessions can be scheduled by emailing and including Georgetown Financial Coaching in the subject line or by calling (443) 492-6563.
