Each decade of life brings a new set of complex financial considerations, and those decisions can be particularly difficult during times of economic uncertainty. To help simplify these choices, The Washington Post today debuts Michelle Singletary’s Money Milestones, a comprehensive guide with practical tips for navigating the financial decisions at each stage of your life.

One of the foremost personal finance experts in the country, Michelle will walk readers through the tough choices they may face as they enter the workforce in their 20s, consider forming a family in their 30s and prepare for retirement in their 60s, 70s and beyond.

“One of the highlights of the past 25 years of writing my column, ‘The Color of Money,’ has been hearing from thousands of readers of all ages about what steps they should take to achieve their financial goals,” Michelle said. “This project draws from many of those questions and will provide timely advice for the big financial milestones in life, such as finding your own healthcare when you turn 26, buying your first home, investing for retirement, planning your estate, and everything in between.”

“Michelle has long been a trusted voice for Washington Post readers, empowering them to take control of their financial lives,” said Business Editor Lori Montgomery. “We’re excited to offer this durable, easy-to-use tool that distills the best of Michelle’s expertise -- customized for you, no matter where you are in your life’s journey.”

For each decade, the guide offers an audio recording of Michelle summing up the challenges one might encounter at that stage of life and the kinds of advice she can offer. A companion Post Reports episode will air the week of Jan. 23 spotlighting some of Michelle's most prominent advice and includes highlights from an interview with her children.
