Financial Literacy Month: How Much Do You Know About Money? (QUIZ)

Posted: Updated:

April is financial literacy month, which means there's no better time than now to learn about managing your finances.

The truth is, financial literacy is something we shy away from. We fail to teach it in schools and parents are so uncomfortable talking to their kids about money, they'd rather talk about drugs.

This skittishness is costing us. Two-thirds of college students don't understand the terms of their loans. The average twenty-something owes $45,000 on average.

How much do you understand about your finances? Test your financial literacy now with this quiz provided by CredAbility, a budget and debt counseling service.
