April is Financial Literacy Month so I thought we could take some time to talk about the importance of this subject. Financial literacy can be defined as the set of skills and knowledge that allows an individual to make informed and effective decisions with all of their financial resources.
These skills are important for everyone to have and will lead you to a happier and more comfortable future if you posses them. At Educators, we offer many products and services that can make you more financially literate.
One great way to become more financially literate is by knowing your credit score. You can stop in to any Educators branch and check your credit score for free. When you know what your score is you can take steps to improve or maintain it.
Another great way to increase your financial literacy is through our Online and Mobile Banking. You can check your balances and transactions from home or on the go. You can also make transfers on the go with the app and website and deposit checks with our new FlashCash feature.
These are just a couple examples of how Educators can help you gain financial literacy. Stop in to a branch and ask how else we can help you!
