  • Oregon’s Insurance Division

    Insurance literacy is financial literacy. There is perhaps no other consumer product that we spend so much money on, yet spend so little time thinking about than insurance. Because of that, we see examples every day of people getting into financial trouble because they didn’t know what they were buying. To help us become informed shoppers of insurance, the Oregon Insurance Commissioner’s Office has created online tools for students, teachers, and parents to assist in understanding insurance. In addition to a wide variety of Consumer Guides and Tip Sheets, we have games and actives that make learning fun and easy. We are also willing to come to your classroom or organization and talk about the wide world of insurance. Remember, if you have insurance problems, “Let us help. We speak Insurance.”

  • The Mint

    The Northwestern Mutual Foundation, the charitable arm of Northwestern Mutual, partnered with the National Council on Economic Education (NCEE) in the development of www.themint.org. Launched in 1997, the site provides tools to help parents as well as educators teach children to manage money wisely and develop good financial habits: the building blocks for a secure future. Given the current rate of savings and debt in America, this is a lesson that desperately needs to be learned. Sections on this site have been designed for families. Most pages are written in a kid-friendly style so families can work together – or older children can work independently in learning money lessons. However, some sections have been developed exclusively for teachers and parents.
