In 2004, the U.S. Congress designated April as National Financial Literacy Month with a goal to raise awareness of the importance of sound financial literacy, that can lead to personal and family economic well-being. In commemorating this month, President Biden’s proclamation calls upon all of us “to highlight the value of high-quality financial education” to improve our financial capability.
