The National Financial Educators Council celebrates Financial Educators Day at Transamerica’s Retirement Readiness Summit by recognizing the exceptional efforts of three individuals who promoted financial wellness over the past year.
Financial Educators Day, which takes place the last Friday of April, is set aside to recognize innovative leaders working to improve the financial capabilities of people in their communities. This year Deb Rubin, Tom Hoffman, and Jania Stout were honored during Transamerica’s second annual Retirement Readiness Summit held April 23-25, 2014. The awards ceremony coincided with National Financial Educators Day on April 25.
Deb Rubin, senior vice president of TPA and specialist advisor distribution for Transamerica Retirement Solutions, received the NFEC’s 2014 Financial Education Leadership Award for her dedication to improving retirement outcomes for American workers.
Tom Hoffman of Lincoln Investment Planning, Inc. and Jania Stout with Fiduciary Consulting Group at PSA also were recognized on Financial Educators Day with receipt of the coveted Transamerica Financial Educators Award. Both Hoffman and Stout deliver community-based financial education programs designed to empower the people they reach with real-world financial lessons.
“Financial illiteracy has reached epidemic proportions in our country, and causes major problems at both the community and national levels. We commend Transamerica for its leadership role in promoting financial wellness,” stated Vince Shorb, CEO of the NFEC. “The efforts of Deb Rubin, Tom Hoffman and Jania Stout are much appreciated. They have been instrumental in creating financially capable citizens, while strengthening their whole communities at the same time.”
