Financial capability improves retirement outcomes
Financial literacy is as important as schooling in building wealth and retirement income. The TIAA Institute focuses on such issues as the importance of financial literacy, the financial literacy of all Americans, as well as special groups such as Hispanics, women and Gen Y.

TIAA Institute - GFLEC Personal Finance Index
Financial knowledge correlates strongly with financial outcomes. So what’s the state of the nation’s financial literacy?
The TIAA Institute-GFLEC Personal Finance Index (P-Fin Index) provides a comprehensive barometer of U.S. adults’ readiness to make sound financial decisions. The P-Fin Index is unique in its capacity to examine financial literacy across eight common financial activities: earning, consuming, saving, investing, borrowing, insuring, understanding risk and gathering information.
