What does financial literacy mean?
The definition of financial literacy can vary a bit depending on the source, but it almost always centers on having the skills and knowledge necessary to make informed decisions regarding your financial resources. For the average consumer, knowing how to maintain a balanced checking account and understanding interest, credit ratings and loan terms are foundational elements of financial literacy. Consumers should also strive to ensure they are financially literate regarding their retirements, ensuring they have plans for the future and are aware how those plans are being managed.
