For many Americans, planning their finances has become a DIY strategy, and it’s never been more necessary to know how to manage money. April has been designated National Financial Literacy Month and now is a great time to reflect on the fundamentals and beyond of money management.

If managed properly, money can provide freedom and security. If mismanaged, it can significantly hinder financial choices. Join Ally Bank and during our live chat: Getting and Staying Financially Fit, to wrap up Financial Literacy month by discussing financial education, skills, tips, and overall personal finance knowledge.

Topic: Getting and Staying Financially Fit

This month’s TweetChat will discuss the importance of a financial education from early childhood, into young adulthood and even into retirement. It’s never too early or too late to learn money management skills.
