It's April! Time to celebrate Financial Literacy Month!


April is a great time to learn more about what you don't know about your finances.

Do you know your credit score? Understand the difference between different savings accounts? Do you know how to start saving money for college? 

Don''t worry if you don't know the answers to these questions. Financial Literacy Month is a great time to walk into a bank or credit union to get the answers you need.

It's also a great time to speak to your kids about money. Financial literacy is something you are never too old or too young to learn.  Read more
