    This article is about a free event that was held in Santa Clara provided by a volunteer financial planners at the Sunnyvale Public Library. Among the topics were budget management, retirement planning, college savings, foreclosures, estate planning, health insurance, and staying solvent in the difficult economy.
    The sessions attracted the unemployed, the hurting, the retired and those just looking for answers.
    These concerns have been of particular interest to high-skill Silicon Valley workers, who suddenly find themselves unable to pay for their many assets without a job. Event attendees appreciated the advice which had no cost or requirements for participating.
    The article emphasizes parting advice including staying away from payday lenders, using free tax preparation assistance, inquiring about rate reductions from PG&E, paying off credit cards, checking credit reports, staying healthy and not going through more than 4% of your retirement savings annually.
