Financial Literacy Month 2017

Posted in Articles on Thursday, April 06, 2017

April is Financial Literacy Month. Resources are available year-round.

Veridian is a member-owned, not-for-profit financial cooperative with a mission to partner in creating your successful financial future. That means giving you the resources to make sound financial decisions today. In honor of Financial Literacy Month, let's recap some of those resources to be sure they’re being used to your family’s full potential.

For the youngest of savers

Veridian’s Kirby Kangaroo Accounts introduce kids (ages 12 and under) to the experience of having their own savings account with a monthly statement, quarterly newsletter and more. All Kirby Kangaroo Accounts include a free piggy bank to hold your young saver’s money between trips to a branch to make their deposits. It’s a great way to start early saving habits.

For local students

From in-school, student-run credit unions to college- and career-planning events, our school partnerships promote the invaluable lesson of how today’s choices impact tomorrow’s financial security. We’ll celebrate Money Smart Week (April 22-29) with a donation of books about entrepreneurship to our Partner in Education schools.

Outside the classroom, Veridian joined forces with the creators of “Broke, Busted & Disgusted,” a documentary made in Iowa with a mission to help students graduate with less debt. Our partnership makes the film available to you at no cost. Watch it today to prompt important conversations with a student in your life.

For everyday life

Did you know you can track budgets, set goals and stay on top of your money with a free tool within Veridian's online banking? If you aren't using Money Manager, we encourage you to try it. You can also stay informed on a variety of topics related to your financial wellness with our advice articles and regular seminars, including Veridian Investment & Trust Services’ upcoming seminar: Social Security and Your Retirement.
