SAN DIEGO, CA (January 3, 2024) — San Diego County Credit Union® (SDCCU®), one of Southern California’s largest locally-owned financial institutions, has once again partnered with the San Diego County Library System in support of Live Well San Diego to host Financial Wellness Wednesdays.

SDCCU offers nearly two dozen different FWW webinar topics that include something for every stage of life, including, but not limited to Banking 101, 6 Steps to Create a Personal Budget, Understanding Your Spending and Financial Behaviors, 10 Steps to Financial Freedom, Simple Ways to Slash Spending, Teaching Your Teen About Money, The Keys to Homeownership, Dealing With a Furlough or Layoff, Current Scams and How to Protect Your Finances, Millennial’s Guide to Savings, Elder Financial Abuse Prevention and SDCCU’s Biz Kid$, to help teach kids about money and business.

Financial Wellness Wednesdays webinar topics rotate weekly. The current schedule is located at sdccu.com/fww.

​As a Live Well San Diego partner, 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. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau reports that people who don’t save are nearly three times more likely to experience difficulty in paying their bills and are more likely to say that finances control their lives. SDCCU is committed to helping change these statistics through the financial education of our communities.

The County Board of Supervisors launched Live Well San Diego in 2010 with the goal of achieving healthy, safe and thriving communities across the region by partnering with community and city leaders, schools, businesses, non-profit organizations and residents.
