“Through this program,” the Commissioner said, “We are bringing you, the consumers, important financial information to help you make informed choices about the products you purchase and avoid fraud.”
Commissioner Kobylowski spoke to the group at part of the Department’s ongoing Financial Literacy Program for Seniors. In the program, which was launched in 2012, the Commissioner and other Department staff speak to seniors about the many financial products geared toward them.
The program for seniors complements the Department’s ongoing Financial Literacy program for high school students. For the last eight years, the Department has conducted financial literacy programs for high school students and spoken to thousands of students in school across the State about topics including basic personal finance, the importance of credit and how to manage credit cards. The Department also initiated a Financial Literacy program for college students this year.
