The mission of the Tennessee Financial Literacy Commission is to equip Tennesseans to make sound financial decisions when it comes to planning, saving and investing.
We want Tennessee to lead the country in the area of financial literacy. Specifically, we want to lead the country in college savings per capita, retirement savings per capita, and have the lowest debt per citizen.
- Increase the college savings rate of Tennesseans
- Increase the average savings rate of low income Tennessee families
- Increase the average rate of retirement savings of Tennesseans
The Tennessee Financial Literacy Commission was created by the Financial Literacy Program Act of 2010 that was signed into law on June 23, 2010.
