JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -

Missouri State Treasurer Clint Zweifel has announced a new push by his office to promote financial literacy among Missourians young and old through social media. As the state’s chief financial officer, Treasurer Zweifel will share tips and online resources to help individuals and families with important money management topics like teaching kids about money, saving for college, exploring homeownership and investing for retirement.

“Missourians who work hard every day at their jobs should have the knowledge to make the most of their money, from spending and building credit to saving and investing,” Treasurer Zweifel said. “The idea behind #FinLitFriday is to empower Missourians to make informed decisions about their personal finances.”
In addition to personal finance tips, Treasurer Zweifel will pull in studies, information and advice from financial experts such as the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Federal Reserve and U.S. Department of the Treasury, using the hashtag #FinLitFriday.
