April is National Financial Literacy Month
(March 31, 2015 In the 2014 Consumer Financial Literacy Survey of adults in the U.S., about 59 percent gave themselves an A or B on their knowledge of personal finance. Despite respondents’ high marks, the survey also revealed that only 39 percent say they have a budget and keep close track of their spending, 32 percent still does not save any portion of their household annual income for retirement and more than 35 million respondents roll over $2,500 or more in credit card debt each month. How do you compare? April is National Financial Literacy Month; an opportunity for you to take a closer look at your personal finances – and more importantly, to make sure they’re on the right track in relation to your long-term goals. To learn more, visit TIAA-CREF’s National Financial Literacy Month home page and sign up for a Financial Essentials live webinar.
