Bank of us and 26TEN: Helping Tasmanians boost their financial literacy

Bank of us is proud to be a member of 26TEN, helping Tasmanians to get the literacy and numeracy skills they need for life and work.

At Bank of us, we’re all about making numbers work- we’ve got some handy resources, like online calculators and our blog articles to help Tasmanians to manage their finances.

Bank of us CEO, Paul Ranson said 26TEN Week was an opportunity to focus on simple steps people can take to build their confidence with their finances.

“The Bank of us website has some handy calculators to make it easy to take some simple steps, like figuring out how long it might take to save for a car or how much your home loan repayments might be”.

“Our friendly team in our Retail Stores are trained to help people understand and manage their money. They can help with things like, choosing the right bank account; understanding your bank statement and setting up internet banking”.

A basic budget is a simple way to improve your financial confidence. You don’t have to be a maths genius to get started. A budget will help you to see where your money is going and to help you plan ahead, whether that’s to save more money, spend less money, or spend more money on the things that matter.

Spending just 10 minutes with our handy budgeting tool can help you understand and improve your financial position. It is free and easy to use. You’ll find it on our website. Day-to-day budgeting | Bank of us
