Resource of the Week – Financial Capability Month

Governor Jay Inslee and President Barack Obama have proclaimed April as Financial Capability Month. See: Governor Jay Inslee’s proclamation (pdf)

In today’s economy, financial capability is essential for making life’s biggest transitions – such as paying for college, buying a home, and retiring.

Financial capability starts with building a strong financial education. The more we know about managing personal finances and avoiding fraud, the better we can secure our financial future.

That’s why this April Governor Jay Inslee is asking state and federal agencies, consumer groups, the financial industry, non-profit organizations, and the media to join together to illustrate the importance of personal financial ownership.
