Make the Most of Financial Literacy Month

April is Financial Literacy Month! This annual event reminds us ALL that we are never “done” with financial literacy. The world changes, financial products change, and our own needs change — that means we always need to keep learning about financial topics.

What do you want to learn more about when it comes to finances?

  • Is buying a home on your radar sometime in the next few years?
  • Do you need a retirement checkup to see if you are on track to meet your goals?
  • Do you want to start saving for your children’s education after high school?
  • Are you having trouble keeping up with your daily-weekly-monthly financial challenges?

Set a goal NOW to take steps toward being the informed consumer and financial manager you want to be! See below for ideas that will help you address the four questions above. And subscribe to MoneyTip$ to make sure you get ongoing reminders and updates on financial topics.
