See the full infographic by clicking on the image.

According to research done by the National Foundation for Credit Counseling (NFCC), roughly 2 in 3 surveyed adults give themselves either a grade of A or B in financial literacy. What grade would you give yourself? If it’s a C or lower, don’t feel too bad — about 35% of surveyed adults replied similarly.

It’s never too late to improve your financial literacy, and ultimately, your finances. You can find plenty of information here on our blog; if you have any specific questions, feel free to leave a comment or send us a message.

Mint’s infographic on the NFCC’s findings contains some more interesting numbers (e.g., 32% of adults have nothing saved for retirement) and also offers some ways to improve your financial situation. Check out the entire infographic by clicking here, or by clicking on the image above.
