[SOS] Secretary of State Connie Lawson launches Indiana MoneyWise financial literacy program and e-magazine
Start Date: 8/13/2014 All Day
End Date: 8/13/2014
Entry Description

INDIANAPOLIS (August 13, 2014) — Today, Secretary of State Connie Lawson launched the Indiana MoneyWise financial literacy program.  This program, formerly known as Indiana Investment Watch, is focused on improving Hoosiers’ financial literacy and protecting investors from scams.  This enhanced program will expand its focus and content to place areas of emphasis on smart money management skills aimed at key demographics. 

 

“As I travel around the state presenting on the topic of financial literacy, it is clear more Hoosiers want help making smart money decisions beyond just investing,” said Secretary Lawson. “When Indiana Investment Watch was launched, it was limited to spotting and avoiding scams.  Now we have broadened our focus and introduced our newest resource, the Indiana MoneyWise e-magazine.” 

 

The centerpiece of the upgrade is the first-ever Indiana Secretary of State e-magazine.  This magazine is available electronically for smart phones, tablets and computers.  Throughout the magazine, there are tips and links to resources to help Hoosiers make wise money decisions. In the “Fraud Stoppers” section, readers can learn more about investment fraud scam artists recently brought to justice by the Secretary of State Securities Division. 

 

Each month, the magazine will have a new focus.  This first edition of the e-magazine will focus on saving money and staying on budget when preparing to go back to school.  In upcoming months, editions will focus on financial tips for newlyweds, preparing and budgeting for the holidays and senior fraud prevention. 

 

Attendees of the Indiana State Fair get a first glance at Indiana MoneyWise.  Secretary Lawson’s booth in the Exposition Hall has a demonstration of the new e-magazine that gives fairgoers the ability to access content instantly via their smart phone or tablet. 

 

To view the online magazine, please visit www.indianamoneywise.com.  When viewing the e-magazine, readers can subscribe to the upcoming editions of the e-magazine by clicking italicized “i” at the top of the page.  This will direct readers to a page where they can submit their email information to subscribe to future editions.   There is no fee for subscribing.

 

The mission of Indiana MoneyWise is to increase financial literacy in Hoosiers and to educate them about the various types of securities fraud.  The program is not funded by taxpayers, but rather comes from fines imposed on violators of securities laws.
