HARRISBURG, Pa., April 16, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In recognition of Governor Corbett's proclamation of April as "Financial Education Month," the members of the Pennsylvania Banking and Securities Commission today urged Pennsylvania parents to educate themselves on how to teach their children to become financially independent.

Gene Natali Jr., author of "The Missing Semester," a financial literacy guidebook for young people and senior vice president at the investment firm C.S. McKee, will be leading a seminar entitled "Teaching Kids and Young Adults to be Financially Independent" during this year's "Money Matters" investor education conference.

The "Teaching Kids" seminar is designed for young people who have recently graduated as well as parents of students in high school and college. Natali focuses on how parents can speak with their children about money and investing, as well as the basics of budgeting, planning for the future and how to handle home and car loans.

"The future of Pennsylvania's economic prosperity depends on young people learning how to make good decisions in an increasingly complex financial marketplace," Glenn E. Moyer, vice-chair of the Commission and Secretary of Banking and Securities said. "I am pleased that Pittsburgh business leaders like Gene are stepping up to contribute to this effort."

"Money Matters" will be held on April 30 at the Pittsburgh Marriott North in Cranberry Township. The conference runs from 6 to 9 p.m., is free and open to the public, but registration is required.

Information and registration is available by calling 1-800-PA-BANKS (800-722-2657) or online at www.dobs.state.pa.us.

Now in its tenth year, "Money Matters" is part of The Campaign for Wise and Safe Investing® Pennsylvania, a collaboration of the AARP Foundation, the Investor Protection Trust, the Pennsylvania Department of Banking and Securities and AARP Pennsylvania.
