I participated in an Influencer Program on behalf of Mom Central for TCF Bank
and received a promotional item to thank me for participating.
In recognition of National Financial Literacy Month, TCF Bank, a Minnesota-based national bank, wants you to consider your financial habits and has created a fun quiz that lets you find your “financial animal.” I love taking quizzes like this, so…
I’m a peacock!
“First is my preferred class and I definitely enjoy the finer things…”
I’d say that’s right on the money, no pun intended. 😉
Before taking the quiz, I hadn’t really considered the role of financial literacy in my life. My husband handles most of the finances, and we don’t have much as far as savings and investments go. Money management takes time and effort, but I know that understanding our finances will allow us to best plan and prepare for the future. Right now, I’d love to learn more about how much we should be putting in our daughters’ college funds.
That’s where TCF Bank’s Financial Learning Center comes in… after taking the quiz, you’re invited to explore the site, which aims to equip consumers with practical and impartial information about money management. I took a look at the site and found it quite useful, as I don’t consider myself to be very financially literate, unfortunately. The site takes you through a variety of modules, covering topics such as savings and investments, mortgages, overdraft, credit cards, credit scores and reports, identity protection, insurance and protection, and financing higher education, and you don’t have to be a TCF Bank Customer to enroll! It makes use of unique technology that incorporates video, animations, gaming and social networking to simplify complex financial concepts, while making it fun. I think people of all ages could benefit from it! Hopefully I’m on the right track to improving my financial IQ and taking control of my future finances.
