Calling all undergraduates! Join the Financial Literacy Program Peer Educators for a informal talk-story session all about how to build (or rebuild) credit and choosing the best form(s) of credit for yourself.
This event has passed, please check back to see when our next presentation will be held.
The best way to establish or maintain your financial fitness is to start with a financial check-up. A financial check-up basically tells you how well you’re doing in terms with your finances. It is also a good opportunity for you to measure the progress you make towards your goals as well as making the appropriate adjustments based on your own personal situation.
Join us as American Savings Bank shares with us how we can conduct our own financial check-ups to ensure our financial wellness!
Seating is limited.
Our nation’s personal savings rate is one of the lowest of developed countries. Most of us are not saving enough for retirement and many of us do not have an emergency fund for unanticipated expenses such as a car accident. Our own UHM students graduate with an average debt of $14,818 (class of 2008).
We will join thousands of Americans in a national campaign to save for big items such as a home, education, or retirement or for smaller accounts like an emergency fund. Since 2007, an annual event in February has been dedicated to promoting savings, reducing debt, and building wealth. More than 1,000 non profit organizations, companies, government agencies, educational institutions, religious institutions, and unions are involved in this project.
