Daylight Savings Time!

It’s that time again!

Ah, another hour of beauty sleep gone! Who doesn’t love that?

Remember to turn your clocks forward before you go to sleep March 8th because daylight savings time begins March 9th at 2 a.m.

Daylight Savings Time was first suggested in 1784 by Benjamin Franklin. Even though Franklin was the first to suggest DST, William Willett is credited for its introduction. Willett, an English builder, shared his thought in 1905. He thought that the clocks should be advanced during the summer months.

In the north hemisphere standard time starts between September and November and ends between March and April, bringing daylight saving time.

The majority of the United States participates in Daylight Savings Time. The states of Arizona and Hawaii do not participate. They use standard time all year.

With the loss of an hour what will you think about? Are you ahead on your retirement plans and your financial goals? It is always great to plan ahead with your finances and retirement plans.

Staying ahead is a smart Financial Strategy for Life!
