FREE “FINANCIAL SMARTS” PROGRAMS FOR MEMBERS

Did you know that three out of four Americans rank finances as their biggest source of stress?  To help members in that regard, the UFCW offers a free online “Money Essentials” course designed to help members take control of their financial situation. Through real-life scenarios, members learn the money management skills necessary to make smart financial decisions — from creating a budget and setting financial goals, to obtaining credit and applying for loans.

Similar programs are available to Union Members from UnionPlus.org, which offers free Debt Management Plans — individualized to your needs — through Money Management International, a nonprofit dedicated to changing creating fresh starts for working families.

You can also log-on to a new web site launched by the State of New Jersey called NJFinLit, which features user-friendly interactive tools, videos and other information to help you better understand and manage your resources.
