NJ Financial Literacy Act goes into effect

In cooperation with Governor Phil Murphy and the New Jersey Legislature, Acting Governor Sheila Oliver signed A-1414 into law on Jan. 3, 2019. The new law requires financial literacy instruction to pupils enrolled in grades six through eight. Instruction will include content on budgeting, savings, credit, debt, insurance, investment, and other issues associated with personal financial responsibility as determined by the State board.

"I am delighted the financial literacy bill was signed into law, so students can receive education on key topics that they will need for the rest of their lives," Senator Addiego said. "We must reach people early on in life so they can plan ahead and build a foundation of financial knowledge that will help them live an independent lifestyle."

NJ Credit Unions partner with the NJ Credit Union League to sponsor Financial Reality Fairs to students since 2010.

WHAT IS A FINANCIAL REALITY FAIR?

A Reality Fair is a fun way for students to learn about managing finances. The program is offered to students from 6th grade through college with no cost to the school. Grants are offered from the New Jersey Credit Union Foundation for NJCUL member credit unions.
