Personal Financial Education

As part of our commitment to your financial well-being, we’re introducing Zogo!

We know learning and establishing personal finance skills can be difficult. We know it’s even more difficult to find free, accessible, and reliable financial resources. That's why SECNY has partnered with Zogo, a gamified mobile app, to help our members learn the basics of personal finance.

The best part? Get rewarded to use it.

It pays to learn about finance - literally! Zogo is a gamified financial literacy app that rewards users for completing bite-sized financial literacy lessons on intelligently saving, spending, and managing their money. The app includes over 900 modules in 54 different topics, from opening a bank account to saving for retirement - and everything in between.

By completing modules, taking interactive five-question quizzes, and participating in daily trivia games, users earn virtual "pineapples" and work toward real-life rewards - like a $5 gift card to one of their favorite stores. The Zogo mission is to make learning fun, simple, and social providing financial literacy to all.
