New website provides easy access to online financial education

BOSTON – Today, Treasurer Deborah Goldberg and the Office of Economic Empowerment (OEE) launched a new and exciting website, MyFinancialLifeMA.org. This multimedia platform provides digital financial education, addressing all the critical stages throughout one's life.

“Our goal is to meet people's needs wherever they are. We are committed to providing impactful tools and skills training across the state,” said Treasurer Goldberg. “The website will offer valuable insights and guidance, creating easy access to the financial skills needed to navigate through complex financial decisions.

Utilizing an online presence was one of 22 recommendations of the Treasurer's Financial Literacy Task Force. MyFinancialLifeMA.org's user-centered design seeks to ensure financial security for all residents of the state. Building off current OEE programs, it was created in multiple languages for people of all ages, backgrounds and levels of financial knowledge. The website was unveiled at the Mass Saves Summit at Worcester State University at 9:45 a.m. on April 28.

On day one of her administration, Treasurer Goldberg created the Office of Economic Empowerment (OEE) led by a Deputy Treasurer, with the deliberate goal of implementing a range of economic empowerment initiatives that include closing the gender wage gap, 

increasing access to financial education, improving college affordability and investing in STEM careers and education.
