SAN DIEGO, CA (July 19, 2018) — San Diego County Credit Union® (SDCCU®), one of California’s largest credit unions, is proud to partner with the Better Business Bureau (BBB) to deliver monthly Financial Wellness Wednesdays seminars to residents of San Diego and Orange counties throughout 2018.
“As one of California’s largest credit unions, helping to improve financial health in the communities where we live and work is essential to our community outreach. We are excited to partner with the BBB to expand our Financial Wellness Wednesdays program and help the community become better educated consumers,” said Teresa Halleck Campbell, SDCCU president and CEO.
Consumers are faced with marketplace challenges on a regular basis, and successfully navigating these obstacles is imperative for preserving personal and financial safety. The Financial Wellness Wednesdays seminars hosted by the BBB are designed to enhance consumer financial literacy by covering a variety of topics. Topics include consumer awareness, auto buying, scams, identity theft prevention, credit cards, smart saving, home buying and budgeting.

SDCCU is dedicated to improving overall economic well-being by engaging in several financial wellness efforts. 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. For access to financial wellness resources, visit sdccu.com/knowledge.
BBB’s mission is to be the leader in advancing marketplace trust by: setting standards for marketplace trust; encouraging and supporting best practices by engaging with and educating consumers and businesses; celebrating marketplace role models; calling out and addressing substandard marketplace behavior; and creating a community of trustworthy businesses and charities.
BBB sees trust as a function of two primary factors – integrity and performance. Integrity includes respect, ethics and intent. Performance speaks to a business’s track record of delivering results in accordance with BBB standards and/or addressing customer concerns in a timely, satisfactory manner.
