Help for Floridians Worried About their Money

November 18th, 2009 by flanews

More than a third of Floridians say they’ve suffered a financial crisis over the past year; three out of four say they know someone who has lost a job.

The statistics were released as part of a new financial education initiative called Money Wise Florida. The initiative is being pushed by bankers and insurance agents. Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink says Money Wise Florida will help struggling families learn how to make ends meet.

“Consumer confidence is extremely weak meaning Floridians everywhere are a little unsure about their family’s futures. These numbers really come as no surprise. Florida families are struggling right now and they need help to bring their budget in for a landing every month,” said Sink

The group has launched a website, www.moneywiseflorida.com and is planning to broadcast a statewide television program sometime next year. The content on the website and on-air will help Floridians get out of debt, sell or buy a home, and save for the future.
