Forty-one percent of U.S. adults, or more than 92 million people living in America, gave themselves a grade of C, D or F on their knowledge of personal finance, leaving substantial room for improvement. Two-thirds of Hoosier owning financial investment have little or no knowledge about potential fraud schemes. Too many people do not have basic financial skills to help them plan for the future.
Indiana MoneyWise is here to change that. Indiana MoneyWise, formerly known as Indiana Investment Watch, is a financial education program. When Indiana Investment Watch was launched, it was limited to spotting and avoiding investment schemes and fraudsters. Through Indiana MoneyWise, the Indiana Secretary of State’s office has broadened its focus to include teaching Hoosiers about financial literacy skills. This enhanced program will expand its focus and content to place areas of emphasis on smart money management skills aimed at key demographics.
Throughout the Indiana MoneyWise site, you will find interactive learning tools and resources to teach you the skills needed to be both financially fit and a wise investor. We encourage you to begin your exploration of our site by watching the $CAMMED documentary. It's a 30-minute film featuring the stories of real investment fraud in Indiana. Our personal finance educational materials cover everything from "Money Skills for Newlywed Couples" to a virtual football game aimed at testing your financial knowledge. Workshops and outreach events held throughout the state provide more in-depth information on smart money management and how to avoid investment scams. Please visit our contact page to learn how you can schedule a free presentation with an outreach specialist from our office.
