Why Do We Need Financial Education?

The Southeastern region makes up the Federal Reserve System's Sixth District. Research findings show that the states in our district rank among the highest for the number of annual personal bankruptcies filed per household. In addition, many of our citizens do not have bank accounts and contribute little to personal savings.

Along with educational programs for employees, the Atlanta Fed provides the following opportunities to our district communities:

Branch Offices
Community Partnerships
Consumer Complaint Information
Speakers Bureau 
Teacher Workshops
Train-the-Trainer Sessions

Community Reinvestment: Does Your Bank Measure Up?
Dollars and Cents: Fundamental Facts about U.S. Money
Paying for It: Checks, Cash, and Electronic Payments

It's important to take charge of your financial future!
