In any case, they must fulfil their obligations as a tax payer through the payment of fees and taxes. Furthermore, by entering the world of work, the student becomes, if they are not already, the client of a bank, since both personal income and expenses, as well as those connected with the work performed, pass through a current account. At the same time, there is the issue of managing savings, through the choice of investments compatible with one's own needs and financial objectives. Among the objectives there is also that of having an adequate income at the end of the working activity, adhering to supplementary social security schemes with respect to the public pension, such as pension funds.
