Financial Literacy


The AICPA 360 Degrees of Financial Literacy program has provided additional resources to help CPAs and state societies educate the public on financial matters related to couples and marriage, home ownership, life crises and retirement.

Eight previously issued resource kits addressed general financial literacy and life stages including career, childhood, college, military service, parenthood, small business and simultaneously caring for children and parents. All are available as free downloads from the CPA Financial Literacy Resource Center ( www.aicpa.org/financialliteracy/life_cycle_resources.asp ).
