Happy Financial Literacy Month!

April is Financial Literacy Month! Also known as National Financial Capability Month, this annual event is centered on improving Americans understanding of financial principles and practices every April.

Below are four websites that will help boost your financial knowledge and teach your children to save at the same time.

Ready. Set. Goal! 4-Week Financial Fitness Challenge: www.feedthepig.org
Did you know that the main reason why most people don’t achieve their goals is lack of proper planning? This month we invite you to commit to our 4-Week Financial Fitness Challenge to help get you on the road to financial success.
National Retirement Planning Week: website: www.retireonyourterms.org
National Retirement Planning Week® is a national effort led by the National Retirement Planning Coalition to help consumers focus on their financial needs in retirement. Even if retirement may be a distant goal, it’s never too early to start planning.  The earlier you start the more you can accumulate.
Teach Children to Save Day: www.aba.org
The ABA Education Foundation established National Teach Children to Save Day to spotlight the importance of teaching our nation’s youth about saving money.
