Seek fiscal assistance before Financial Literacy Month ends


The official Minnesota Financial Literacy Month calendar indicates that there are still two major events left for state residents who wish to take advantage of these offerings.


On Monday, April 1, Governor Mark Dayton declared April to be Financial Literacy Month in Minnesota. The initiative, which began in 2003 when the promotion was formally designated by the U.S. Senate, seeks to empower Americans nationwide to learn more about their finances so they can make informed decisions that lead them toward a successful financial future.

According to the Minnesota Department of Commerce, April saw more than 40 outreach events taking place across the state during the month, with many helping soldiers, students, families and senior citizens increase their awareness of these important topics.

“Since the beginning of the Governor's term, the Dayton Administration has renewed state government's commitment to advancing the cause of financial literacy in Minnesota,” a release regarding Financial Literacy Month noted. “Strengthening programs, outreach efforts and key partnerships with stakeholders, state agencies have been working together across the administration to make Minnesota a nation-leading force for financial education and empowerment.”

The official Minnesota Financial Literacy Month calendar indicates that there are still two major events left for state residents who wish to take advantage of these offerings.

On Friday, April 26, a Senior Town Hall Meeting will be held by Senator Jim Metzen and Representative Joe Atkins at the Veterans Memorial Community Center in Inver Grove Heights. Here, lawmakers will discuss scams and frauds that target seniors in the state.

Those who can't make it to this event can catch “Conversations with Al McFarlane, Borrowing Trouble: How Predatory Financial Practices Harm People and Communities,” which will be taped on April 30 and aired on TV over the following weeks.

Of course, receiving a face-to-face consultation with a financial lawyer may be the most beneficial option, especially if you're experiencing immediate issues meeting your fiscal obligations.
