SMMC Enews for Employees: March 18, 2020
Over the past few weeks, our lives have changed drastically. The way we work, learn, and play is undergoing a challenging metamorphasis during a time of uncertainty.
This e-newsletter has been crafted to try to help you navigate this time of uncertainty both personally and professionally. We wanted to explain some terminology related to financial wellness that will be very important over the next few months for employees, students, and families across the globe.

We're in this together.
