Straight Talk

You know money ... yeah, right!


Do you have some basic or advanced financial knowledge? If so, you are way ahead of other Americans.

Let's be honest. Money doesn't come with a set of instructions. To make it even more "fun," the world has become way more complex financially. That's why some basic financial knowledge can go a long way.

Overall, most people lack any sort of financial savvy. Some people rack up big credit card balances and have no household budget, while others fail to plan ahead or participate in qualified retirement accounts. Additionally, many people leave money on the table by not taking full advantage of matching contributions in their company's 401(k) plans (which is free money, folks).

With all this said, take our quiz to see how good you are at managing your finances.
