Sudden wealth: a blessing or a curse?

Even in the toughest financial times, you can get a windfall of money and have no idea what to do with it. In this episode of Edelman Financial Engines’ Everyday Wealth™, Soledad, Jean and wealth planner Jason Cowans talk about what to do if you’re one of those lucky people who come into sudden wealth – either through an inheritance, a divorce or lawsuit settlements, or even the lottery – to help make the most of your money.
