Celebrate Financial Literacy Month by Taking Financial Action

America Saves is spending the April celebrating National Financial Literacy Month. This month is a great reminder that no matter how financially knowledgabel you may be, there is always more to learn about personal finance. There are endless opportunities to take control of your financial situation, and ultimately take action to save.

As Financial Literacy Month kicks off, America Saves wants to share three easy steps to assess your current situation and take action to save:

  1. Use the Saver Checklist Tool to check off your savings accomplishments and see how you’re doing.
  2. Try the Assess Your Savings Tool to see if you are saving adequately, and create a savings plan.
  3. Reinvigorate your commitment to savings in your current goal – or in a new one! – by repledging with America Saves.

Don’t leave the month of April feeling financially uninspired. Try one or all of the steps above and turn your financial literacy into financial action.

Saving at Tax Time

Do you spend weeks eagerly anticipating your tax refund? When the money finally comes in, is it gone tomorrow? Many people view tax refunds as unplanned bonuses. They see the money as a gift from the government, to use for splurges or treats. A tax refund provides the opportunity to improve your financial situation.
