Abstract

<p>Advice from financial counselors is one potential source for improving financial behaviors and well-being among clients and within their communities. This study examined whether obtaining financial advice is associated with other personal financial behaviors. Analysis of National Financial Capability Study data showed that obtaining advice is positively associated with financial behaviors while controlling for other relevant variables, including two measures of financial knowledge. The results also indicated greater benefits from obtaining advice for those with less financial knowledge. The findings suggest that efforts by financial counselors to provide financial advice to clients and others through service activities can improve financial decision-making in their communities including by those who can benefit the most.</p>
