The President's Advisory Council on Financial Literacy defines personal financial literacy as "the ability to use knowledge and skills to manage financial resources effectively for a lifetime of financial well-being." (2008 Annual Report to the President) Personal financial literacy is more than just being able to balance a checkbook, compare prices or get a job.
