The Actuarial Foundation is a nonprofit organization with a vision of an educated public in pursuit of a secure financial future. To achieve this vision, the Foundation provides a library of noncommercial, unbiased consumer financial education resources for the public. In addition to consumer resources, the Foundation develops and distributes a financial literacy curriculum aimed at high school students as well as a multitude of mathematical supplemental materials for young students. All of these free resources and educational materials are available in both print and online versions at: www.actuarialfoundation.org.
Financial Smarts is a quarterly consumer newsletter with practical insights on some of today’s most pressing economic issues, such as retirement planning, saving and insurance. Written by actuaries on topics requested by consumers, Financial Smarts is designed to help readers efficiently manage the risks they face in an ever-changing economic climate.
We need strategic partners to help us expand our distribution of Financial Smarts to the general public. We are also looking for nonprofit organizations interested in collaborating on the development and distribution of new consumer financial education resources.
The Summer 2012 edition of the Financial Smarts newsletter is focused on the many options retirees face when considering long-term care insurance. Financial Smarts and the Foundation’s library of other free consumer resources are available online at www.actuarialfoundation.org/programs/consumer_education.shtml
