Better Banks is celebrating Financial Literacy Month in April and encouraging Americans to take control of their financial future by learning fiscally responsible habits and putting these lessons into practice.
Twenty-two percent of Americans report that “just getting by financially or finding it hard to get by” describes them completely or very well. Nearly 40 percent of Americans say they don't have anyone they can ask for trusted financial guidance, according to financial literacy statistics.
