Money Matters: Building financial wellness

Money Matters

Every day, many consumers experience financial difficulties impacting their everyday lives.

To help promote positive change, April has been declared National Financial Literacy Month.

Financial wellness may be the furthest thing from our minds, especially with our day-to-day distractions. 

But being prepared now and for your future is incredibly important.

You don’t necessarily need to make huge changes all at once. Sometimes starting small and building momentum is all it takes. For example:

  1. Save for an emergency fund and create a budget.
  2. Assess your financial situation. Where are you now, and where do you want to be?

It may be as simple as setting up an automatic transfer to your savings account, or schedule a consultative appointment with a HawaiiUSA specialist. 

If you want more information on a particular topic, for example, paying student loans, or buying your first home, you can visit for interactive articles, games, worksheets, and courses.
