1 PERSONAL FINANCE TASK 3: CREATE A PERSONAL BUDGET VE Departments Involved All Employees Month for Activity/Time Frame Early October / Five Days Note: o The activities in Personal Finance Task 3 have been grouped into easily managed sub-tasks (3.1, 3.2, 3.3, 3.4 and 3.5). Each task provides students with guidelines and information for determining the cost of a typical item found in a personal budget. o Each sub-task has a corresponding student task which is listed in the Student Monthly Task Guide found on the VEI website under Resources/Reference Files. o o Each employee must have access to a working computer. It is suggested that you, the teacher, take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with the calculator and with each student task and resource associated with Personal Finance (PF) Task 3. Outcomes Each employee will: Determine typical monthly living expenses associated with a personal budget Record proof of their personal finance activity. Record their monthly personal finance expenses into an MS Excel workbook (resource: My Personal Finance Budget). Activities/Strategies Preliminary Preparation: o Prior to the introduction of this task, the HR department must provide each employee with information regarding his/her hourly rate of pay or yearly salary. o If available, obtain copies of rental property publications which can usually be found online or in your local stores. o Each employee must provide evidence of the task for assessment. An MS Word document, My Personal Finance, has been provided in the Resources/Reference Files/Personal Finance section of the VEI website. Teachers can have students create a screen snapshot (Alt+PrintScreen) and paste the image into the Word document. If employees use a printed publication for their research, they can take a picture of it with their cellphone, it to him/herself, then paste it into their MS Word document. Ultimately, the teacher can decide the method of assessment that best suits his/her VE class. o Employees must enter their determined expenses into their Excel workbook, My Personal Finance Budget, which can be found on the VEI website under Resources/Reference Files/Personal Finance. Be sure to emphasize saving the file after making updates. - Explain that all employees are now entering into the adult world (virtually) of receiving a regular paycheck, living on their own, and being responsible for paying for all of their personal living expenses.

2 - Emphasize that personal finance is not only a key element of real life, it is also a key element of the virtual enterprise program; each student will be evaluated on how well they establish and maintain their personal finances. - Explain that creating a budget for managing personal finances is essential for determining a spending plan and avoiding surprises that can lead to financial distress, both in the real world and in the virtual world. A personal finance budget consists of: fixed living expenses - expenses that are not easily adjusted and do not change from time period to time period such as rent, insurance, and loan interest. Flexible (or variable) living expenses - essential living expenses that vary from month to month that can be adjusted by consumption or usage. optional flexible living expenses - non-essential living expenses that be easily adjusted by consumption/usage or eliminated completely. - Emphasize that it is important to have a balanced budget, a plan that shows the money coming in (income) is equal to the amount going out (expenses). DAY 1 Task 3.1: Determine Take-home Pay Time Frame: ½ day Begin planning their personal finance budget by estimating the amount of their net income (take-home pay). Point out that Net income is referred to as take-home pay because it is the amount of an individual s earnings (gross earnings) less taxes and deductions. (More detail concerning the elements of a paycheck is covered in PF Task 6.) Verify his/her hourly rate of pay or yearly salary with the HR Department. Point out that each employee receives an hourly rate of pay or a yearly salary commensurate with the job that he/she holds within the company. Access Personal Finance Task 3.1 through the VEI website, which will require them to do the Calculate his/her monthly net income using an online paycheck calculator ( Select the appropriate calculator: Salary vs. Hourly Select Pay Frequency of Monthly (for the purpose of this exercise) Federal and State filing status is Single with one withholding No additional withholdings unless already determined by employer (insurance, pension, etc.) Open the Excel workbook Personal Finance Budget and save the workbook as My Personal Finance Budget in his/her personal drive, or wherever they save their personal electronic files. Update the workbook with his/her name and calculated net income. Save the changes to his/her workbook. Examine the propagated estimates of his/her living expenses to determine the amount of money that he/she should earmark for various monthly living expenses. Note: Percentages for living expenses were derived from the Bureau of Labor Statistics Consumer Expenditures for 2012; reference age of 21.7 Excel workbook My Personal Finance Budget

They are required to establish a virtual household that emulates the real world as closely as possible They must first establish a new place of residence. Point out that it is common practice to be charged a security deposit (covers damages by the tenant) and first and last month s rent when renting a residence Note: For this exercise, it is recommended that students NOT be required to pay a security deposit or last month s rent (their virtual dollars will later be used to stimulate the virtual marketplace) - Access Personal Finance Task 3.2 through the VEI website, which will require them to do the Find an apartment or house to rent by searching the Internet or a rental property publication to determine their new living arrangements Point out the following - They DO NOT qualify for Section 8 housing The apartment/ house must be in a neighborhood in which they would most likely live in real life The apartment/house must be located reasonably near their work location (of their virtual business) in order to minimize their monthly transportation expense and time They are allowed roommates BUT each roommate must have his/her own bedroom.

They must purchase their own personal cellphone service. They can opt to purchase virtual cellphone service for their current cellphone, or they can opt to upgrade their current phone and purchase a new phone. Note: There will most likely be a virtual business that offers cellphones and cellphone services.
