Welcome to the Iowa Financial Literacy Program
The Iowa Insurance Division is pleased to lead a major initiative to bring critical financial literacy education to Iowa students through the Iowa Financial Literacy Program. The Iowa Insurance Division has underwritten the cost of the EverFi – Financial LiteracyTM platform, an engaging, online resource that uses video, animations and interactive activities to bring complex financial concepts to life.
During the 2015-2016 school year, the Iowa Financial Literacy Program contributed to over 100,000 hours of financial education learning for high school students in Iowa. After completing the course, students are proven to be more confident and better prepared to make the financial decisions they will face in young adulthood.
The platform contains 9 modules covering the following topics:
- Credit Cards & Interest Rates
- Credit Score
- Financing Higher Education
- Renting vs. Owning
- Taxes & Insurance
- Consumer Protection
