04-17-2015  Financial IQ Challenge - Win a Mini Ipad!

April is National Financial Literacy Month, which is a campaign born by Money Management International (MMI) in 2004, in recognition of the need for Americans to educate themselves about their personal finances. To highlight this message, MMI has developed several resources that help lead users to financial wellness, as well as a toolkit to help you show your support for Americans improving their personal finances. We encourage campuses to use this opportunity to schedule special financial education sessions, and remind employees of the financial education resources they have available to them, such as the Financial Planning & Tools section of the SUNY Benefits web page, and SUNY Smart Track. In recognition of Financial Literacy Month for 2015, SUNY is hosting an Interactive Financial Challenge (FIQ), by which five eligible employees will each win a 16GB iPad mini!

The FIQ Challenge is a daily five-question quiz available throughout the month of April, during which employees may participate with the goal of completing all questions by April 30, 2015.  Each day of participation serves as an entry for a chance to win one of five iPad minis. Your assistance is needed for successful engagement. Winners will be selected during the first week of May, and once their eligibility is verified, the prizes will be shipped out.   Good luck!
