In times of economic volatility, such as the current downturn due to the coronavirus pandemic, many people begin to question whether they’re financially prepared and capable of managing their money well.

Some may be figuring out how to budget for the first time, especially if they’re worried about losing their job. Others may find themselves trying to determine how to safeguard their savings, investments and other assets. 

Making these types decisions requires a bit of financial know-how. But it can be overwhelming if you’re new to managing money. To help you get started, CNBC Make It rounded up five free educational resources that will help you build wealth, learn to invest, understand life insurance, navigate retirement savings and more.

It’s important to note that these courses are not meant to serve as a substitute for professional financial help. It’s a good idea to consult a financial advisor with any big questions before making any major money decisions.
