Squared Away

Squared Away’s mission is to provide clear and engaging financial guidance, without any spin or slant, based on the best academic research. The site is sponsored by the Social Security Administration to help near-retirees prepare their finances and make more informed choices in how they spend their money.

How-To Guides & Learn More

We created an article template that allowed researchers to create feature-rich guides to different financial issues. Our WordPress interface let them build sections for the different steps. They could also upload a Microsoft Excel file (their preferred way of working) and our system would parse it into an interactive JavaScript calculator visitors could use to figure out their finances.

Interactive Calculators

We built interactive tools that allow visitors to input their financial information and plan for their future. The figures automatically save to the user's browser so the next time they visit they can pick-up where they left off (without worrying about logging in).
