Financial security in adulthood depends greatly upon financial knowledge during childhood, teen, and young adult years. Financial knowledge is described as understanding key financial terms and concepts needed to function daily in American society. It includes knowledge about items related to banking, auto, life, health and homeowners insurance, using credit, taxes, and investing. While there are other important areas related to personal finance, these are areas most American adults encounter as they make daily financial transactions and decisions.
