April is Financial Literacy Month! Throughout the month of April, we will be focusing our blog on articles, information, and resources associated with money management and financial literacy. For many older adults, economic security begins with basic knowledge of money management. Being faced with scams, making decisions associated with long-term care, retirement planning, debt-collection and much more, it’s becoming increasingly important for older adults to become well-informed about their finances and the steps necessary for protecting them.
