AICPA's Financial Literacy Website Gets More Personalized and Interactive


The Institute’s 360 Degrees of Financial Literacy program recently relaunched its website (360financialliteracy.org).

 

The new site is designed to provide a more personalized experience, with an increased emphasis on user interaction and more streamlined content delivery. For example, the site features a “My 360” tool, which allows registered users to create a customizable dashboard featuring articles and resources that can help them make informed financial decisions based on information they provide on their life stage and employment status.

 

The AICPA introduced 360 Degrees of Financial Literacy in 2004 as a national volunteer effort of the CPA profession to help improve the financial understanding of all Americans. CPAs, either through state CPA societies or individually, volunteer their time and expertise to help Americans improve their financial literacy.

 

Other new features of the site include:

  • The ability to rate and comment on articles.
  • Enhanced “Ask the Money Dr.” section for consumers seeking guidance about personal financial matters, staffed by AICPA members who hold the Personal Financial Specialist (PFS) credential.
  • RSS feeds.
  • A widget to add to websites and blogs.
