Financial Literacy Month

Every April, the U.S. celebrates National Financial Literacy Month.

This serves as a great reminder for people of all ages to check in on their financial situation and knowledge of their finances.

Why We Observe

Without financial education, you cannot obtain financial freedom. Financial Literacy Month allows people to take steps towards getting their finances in check. In addition, it allows us to keep up with the changing financial conditions of the world. With COVID-19 drastically changing the way the world operates, it’s important to be able to adapt to things outside of our control that may impact our finances.

Financial Literacy Month helps citizens become more responsible, especially those of the younger generations. It helps teach important information about money management, saving, and spending. By teaching kids at a young age the importance of financial literacy, we will allow them to make informed financial decisions for years to come.
