Learning about your finances

Now that you’re done fooling, it’s time to focus on a more serious April event: National Financial Literacy Month!

OK, so thinking about finances might not be quite as fun as scheming ways to dupe your friends, but it certainly is important. So important, actually, that there’s a whole month dedicated to learning about your finances.

During April why not take a little time to think about what areas of your finances you’d like to learn more about?

Don’t know where to start? Get a grasp on some basics through the Hands on Banking® program. There are sections for young adults and adults where you can learn about everything from savings and credit cards to mortgages and investing. (Plus, for you parents with younger children, there are kids and teens sections with age appropriate information. Not to mention the wonderful community on Stagecoach Island!)

Even if you’re feeling particularly financially savvy, make April the month that you dive deeper into one topic. Head to the library for a book on the subject, or enlist the help of a banker or financial advisor.

Is there anything specific we can help you learn about this month? We want to help! Let us know what’s on your mind when it comes to student loans or your finances in general.
