Financial Education and Confidence in Financial Knowledge

We examine how a comprehensive financial education intervention impacts knowledge and confidence in knowledge, over 6-months. We find evidence that financial confidence persists longer than financial knowledge. We discuss implications for improving consumer education interventions.
