Financial Literacy


Take the pledge



The Arizona Department of Financial Institutions (AZDFI) is a state agency that regulates and examines a variety of state chartered enterprises and institutions.

AZDFI is committed to promoting financial education.In 2015, Arizona joined 18 other states in adopting April as Financial Literacy Month supporting increased awareness of personal financial education.

We developed this web page for Arizona residents who are looking for information and resources about finances.




Ultimately, financial responsibility means living within your means, regardless of the level of those means. Take a close look at your financial situation, evaluate your earnings and spending habits, and make the necessary adjustments to obtain financial freedom.
