April is All About Your Financial Well-being!
April is both Financial Well-being Month and National Credit Union Youth Month!
Financial Well-being Month
The Minnesota Credit Union Network marks April as Financial Well-being Month. Financial well-being is:
- Having control over day-to-day, month-to-month finances
- Having the capacity to absorb a financial shock
- Being on track to meet your financial goals
- Having the financial freedom to make the choices that allow you to enjoy life
According to the Financial Health Network, 167 million people in America are struggling financially. Financial health disparities have widened by race and income, and persisted across gender against the backdrop of COVID-19 pandemic. Credit unions are uniquely positioned to address this challenge due to their core mission, affordable products, and member-centric service model.

Every April, National Credit Union Youth Month serves to encourage kids to develop healthy saving habits by making savings fun and exciting.
TopLine is here to help! We have a number of fun activities for youth of all ages.
Dollar Dog Kids Club
Designed for kids age 12 and younger, the Dollar Dog Kids Club helps kids learn how to save, spend and share their money wisely. The Dollar Dog Online Clubhouse site features games, savings calculators and more to make financial literacy engaging and fun!
Cha-Ching Teen Club
Today's teens don’t just spend at the mall anymore—they're buying through their phone and online. TopLine's Cha-Ching Teen Club helps kids aged 13-17 be financially responsible. Through online blogs, forums, podcasts and videos, teens learn how to balance needs and wants, build a budget, set financial goals, use credit wisely and more.
When you’re age 18-22, you’re on the edge of adulthood—which means managing your own finances. TopLine’s The Edge savings program can help. Through online blogs, forums, podcasts and videos, you’ll learn how to prioritize wants and needs, set financial goals, understand your credit score and more. So you can learn to cover expenses like food, clothes, housing and school and still have some fun money left in your pocket.
