The new website includes enhanced interactive features and utility to provide more resources to Americans seeking information that can inform their personal financial decisions. The website creates an online point of access to financial information from the twenty-one federal agencies, departments and bureaus that comprise the Financial Literacy and Education Commission.
Through the website users will be able to:
- Find information about how to plan for a host of life events that have financial implications, including having children, home ownership, and retirement,
- Find information targeted to their personal or professional situation, and
- Access money management tools including a financial savings calculator and a college preparation checklist.
The website is one of the steps the Obama Administration is taking to expand financial education and access for the future. President Obama recently proclaimed April to be National Financial Literacy Month.
