VIRTUAL Understanding Credit & How to Improve it SEMINAR - TBD
Whether you're buying a home, a car, or applying for a credit card, lenders want to know the risk they're taking on by lending you money. Knowing your credit score will put you at an advantage by preparing you with a rating of your creditworthiness, but if your score is lower than you thought, finding approval with favorable rates and terms will be challenging. Improving your credit will require patience and discipline, but by implementing smart credit practices into your financial behavior, you'll start to see a more positive credit history and score.
Understand the importance of credit and how life events can impact your score
Learn how to obtain your credit report for FREE and review the information for accuracy
Realize the importance of Fair Isaac Corporation (FICO) Scores and the factors lenders use to assess your risk
Receive best practices on how to maintain your credit score to boost your financial health
Rebuilding after a financial crisis - 11/9 @ 1:30pm and 11/18 @ 8:30pm
A job loss, a medical crisis, or other hardship can send a normal financial situation into a tailspin. Participants will learn how to get their finances back on track, including budgeting, repaying debt, rebuilding credit, establishing emergency savings, and replenishing retirement savings.
10 steps to financial success - 12/7 @ 1:30pm and 12/16 @8:30pm
We all measure financial success differently, but all paths to get there require discipline and goals. This session teaches participants ways to financial control— including developing a spending plan, creating objectives, weighing insurance needs, and other tools that will help get on the road to personal financial success.
Are You Financially healthy? - 1/11 @ 1:30pm and 1/20 @8:30pm
In this workshop you will understand what it means to be financially healthy – which is so much more than the one score everyone asks you about today – your credit score. True financial health is based on four key components: Spend, Save, Borrow, and Plan. You’ll also get a chance to confidentially determine your own Financial Health Score and the steps you can take to improve that score.
