New Financial Fitness Challenges Life turning points
MADISON, Wis. (1/26/09)--The Home and Family Finance Resource Center’s newest Financial Fitness Challenge will focus on a series of major life points--such as a wedding, first house, job loss, and death of a spouse--to help credit unions assist their members’ financial needs. Each month, the resource center will examine a pivotal life event, using a frequently asked questions format and list of resources. “The goal is to help members think ahead to how they’d manage a turning point, and have the information available in the archive should they need it later,” said Susan Tiffany, director of the Credit Union National Association’s personal financial information for adults. “Each turning point highlights appropriate credit union products and services.” The turning points will be weaved into the center’s three-year Financial Fitness Challenge and for a monthly column that includes interviews with experts and individuals who have experienced major life events. Each monthly challenge and turning point also will be highlighted on Home and Family Finance Radio, which airs Sundays at 3 p.m. EST on the Radio America network. The January turning point is “Starting a Business.” February’s will address what happens when individuals lose a job. The center also will give away five $50 Visa cards each month through a random computer draw. Anyone can register to win. For more information, use the link.
