Lack of financial literacy has been shown to be a serious obstacle to financial stability. The Financial Literacy Center is using new and innovative methods such as visual tools and the power of stories and narratives to teach basic but fundamental economic concepts that are the foundation of financial decisionmaking.
Financial Literacy Center Research Projects
Our projects focus on creating and tailoring materials relevant to Americans at different stages of their lives—young workers, mid-career workers, near retirees, and retirees—and evaluating their effectiveness in fostering retirement security. The Center also provides educational products for underserved populations, such as low-income, young, and disabled workers, who are particularly vulnerable during periods of financial turbulence.
