Celebrate National Financial Literacy Month

April is National Financial Literacy Month - a time to celebrate and raise awareness about the importance of financial literacy and encourage people to develop smart money management habits. Recent surveys revealed many adults lack basic financial knowledge (e.g., budgeting and saving to understanding credit and investing) which leads to financial challenges. But there's good news! As an Alliance Member with The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), The SOFEI Group contributes to delivering (i.e., training and teaching) Money Smart - a comprehensive program for consumers and small businesses. Money Smart offers free, high-quality financial education materials for people of all ages and backgrounds. Whether you're a seasoned investor or just starting your financial journey, Money Smart has something for everyone, and here's how to make the most of it during National Financial Literacy Month:

  2. Attend Virtual Workshops: Join a Money Smart virtual workshop hosted by financial professionals and industry experts. From live Q&A sessions to interactive discussions, these workshops offer invaluable opportunities to deepen financial knowledge and ask burning questions.

  3. Access Free Resources: Say goodbye to pricey financial courses and costly seminars! Money Smart provides a wealth of free resources, including lesson plans, presentations, worksheets, and training guides designed to build essential money management skills. It's like having a personal financial coach at your fingertips!
