FDIC Consumer News Publishes a Special Guide to Money Management for Young Adults
The latest FDIC Consumer News (Spring 2005) is a special issue devoted to helping young adults, including those just beginning a career or family and others still in college or high school, learn the right ways to save and manage money right from the start.
The new publication, entitled “Taking Control of Your Finances: A Special Guide for Young Adults,” is now available on the FDIC Web site at www.fdic.gov/consumers/consumer/news/cnspr05. It features:
To help make the tips and information in this special edition widely available to young adults, the FDIC is taking several steps. First, the agency is providing single copies free of charge through the Federal Citizen Information Center. Consumers can order this issue online at www.fdic.gov/consumers/consumer/news/cnspr05 or write to: Taking Control of Your Finances, Pueblo, CO 81009. Second, the FDIC is encouraging financial institutions, colleges, high schools, consumer groups and the media to reprint the new guide in whole or in part and to mention or link to the FDIC Web site. The guide is available on the FDIC Web site in a PDF format that can easily be reproduced in any quantity, and the back page of this version was intentionally left blank so that an organization could add its name, logo, a special message and/or self-mailing information. And, third, the FDIC is preparing a Spanish version of the new guide for young adults.
The goal of the quarterly FDIC Consumer News is to deliver timely, reliable and innovative tips and information, free of charge, to help people protect and stretch their money. Current and past issues appear online at www.fdic.gov/consumers/consumer/news. The FDIC offers a free subscription service that provides an e-mail notice about each new issue posted to the Web site and provides a link to stories of interest. Instructions for subscribing are posted on the FDIC Web site at www.fdic.gov/about/subscriptions/index.html.

The FDIC insures deposits at the nation's 8,975 banks and savings associations and it promotes the safety and soundness of these institutions by identifying, monitoring and addressing risks to which they are exposed.
