Vea esta página en español

The Money Smart Computer-Based Instruction (CBI) is an easy-to-use tool to learn more about basic personal financial management. The CBI can complement formal classes by providing learning assignments that users can complete at their own pace.

The CBI features a game-based learning design and separate learning tracks for adults and young adults. The adult learning track features the 11 modules in the instructor-led Money Smart curriculum for adults. The young adult learning track (for those age 13 and older) features the eight modules in the Money Smart for Young Adults curriculum.

Each module can generally be completed within 30 minutes. Successful completion of a module will earn the user a certificate of completion for the module.

FDIC staff is available to provide technical assistance and to help facilitate partnerships among interested parties.

Access the CBI version of Money Smart:

If you are accessing the CBI from a slow internet connection, you may experience brief response delays. For optimum CBI viewing we suggest a set of minimum computer requirements.

If you need to stop the online CBI program while in progress the program will remember where you stopped, once you log back in.

A CD-ROM version is available for those without internet access and may be ordered. When using the CBI CD-ROM, you must use the same computer that you used the previous time. This will allow the program to remember where you stopped.
