Tennessee Financial Literacy Month 2010:
Take No Chances with Your Finances

Take No Chances With Your Finances Gov. Phil Bredesen has declared April as Tennessee Financial Literacy Month. Bredesen acknowledges organizations working to promote financial literacy across the state and supports educating citizens on the importance of financial education.

Financial education plays a part in everyday life as we are almost certain to face financial decisions on a daily basis. With that, more financial knowledge and understanding is needed for Tennesseans to be confident in their financial decisions.

The Department of Financial Institutions is committed to supporting and increasing its involvement in state financial literacy efforts. This Web site is dedicated to observing Tennessee Financial Literacy Month. TDFI encourages Tennesseans to utilize financial literacy resources available and spread your financial knowledge!Financial Literacy Calendar
