April is National Financial Literacy Month – Time to get your finances on track
As one of Southern California’s largest credit unions, SDCCU is committed to engaging in activities aimed at improving the financial health of communities
SAN DIEGO, CA (April 8, 2019) — As a Live Well San Diego partner and one of Southern California’s largest credit unions, San Diego County Credit Union® (SDCCU®), is proud to celebrate April’s National Financial Literacy Month. SDCCU is committed year-round to improving overall economic well-being by engaging in several efforts and activities aimed at improving the financial health of the communities where we operate. Research shows that poor financial health can often lead to diminished physical health. Also, evidence suggests that the average high-school graduate lacks basic skills to manage personal finances, many young people experience difficulty balancing a checkbook and half of Americans live paycheck to paycheck. Together, we can help change these statistics and improve the financial health of our communities.
“With April being National Financial Literacy Month, it presents a great time to check in with your finances and start making changes to enhance your financial future. Improving the financial health of our communities is a significant focus of SDCCU’s community outreach as we provide many opportunities throughout the year to help people get on the right track for financial success,” said Teresa Campbell, SDCCU president and CEO.
On April 24, SDCCU is presenting a free cybersecurity seminar hosted by expert Jim Stickley to help individuals protect themselves online. Mr. Stickley will share tips and tricks to protect privacy providing real-world examples and the latest tactics hackers use like ransomware, the dark web and more. To register for the seminar, visit sdccu.com/seminar. The upcoming seminar is part of SDCCU’s Financial Wellness Wednesdays, a program set forth to provide greater access to financial literacy by hosting presentations at various locations on a consistent basis.
