Gov. Pete Ricketts proclaimed April as Financial Awareness Month in Nebraska.
The Nebraska Bankers Association and its member banks are pleased to support Nebraska Financial Awareness Month. Nebraska banks are committed to improving financial literacy in the communities they serve. They sponsor programs and offer tools to help Nebraskans of all ages improve their financial decision-making and reach their financial goals. Individuals and families who have a solid financial education foundation are more likely to purchase a home, save for college and invest which, in turn, helps Nebraska communities thrive. Nebraska banks are also watching out for their customers. They pushed for the passage of legislation that allows them to place a hold on a transaction if they suspect a vulnerable customer is a victim of financial exploitation.
