April is National Financial Capability Month and the District of Columbia Department of Insurance, Securities and Banking (DISB), the District’s financial services regulator, will offer free personal financial resources and education throughout the month to improve the financial fitness of District residents.
“Helping District residents and their families make informed financial choices is one of the most important things we do as an agency,” said Commissioner Stephen C. Taylor. “Every District resident should have a fair shot at managing his or her money with the right tools and opportunities. We encourage residents to take advantage of the free financial education resources provided this month and throughout the year.”
As part of the month’s activities, DISB is offering a free personal financial health assessment through its Bank on DC program aimed at helping District residents and families evaluate, understand and improve their financial health. It also connects participants with specific resources tailored to their needs. The assessment can be accessed here.
