Increase Your Financial Knowledge
SLFCU has a new partner that can help you start 2019 on the path to a stronger financial future – BALANCE Financial Fitness. The new year is a great time to set financial goals, and increasing your financial knowledge is a first step toward better money management. BALANCE tools and resources are free to SLFCU members and include:
Not sure where to start? Learn the basics of personal finance with BALANCE’s educational modules - BalanceTrack and InBalance. These programs cover topics such as checking accounts, basic money management, the psychology of spending, and buying a car. Information is available in easy to read chapters so you can go at your own pace and return where you left off if you get interrupted. The learning modules also include a short quiz at the end so you can test your knowledge.
Each month BALANCE hosts webinars on timely financial topics. The webinars are offered in day and evening sessions; topics include how to build a budget, first steps to becoming a homeowner, and more. Visit our Events, Seminars and Webinars Calendar to see what topics will be covered in the coming months or to register for a free BALANCE webinar.
ARTICLES AND CALCULATORS
If you want to learn more about a specific financial topic, like getting out of credit card debt or saving for college tuition, BALANCE has articles and calculators that can help. You can explore tips and strategies for nearly any financial situation. BALANCE also offers calculators that can help you determine a strategy for reaching a financial goal based on your needs.
PODCASTS AND VIDEOS
BALANCE offers podcasts and short, one-minute videos. These resources are ideal for anyone who wants to learn more about a financial topic, but may not have the time to browse articles or participate in a webinar. If you only have a minute to spare, or prefer to listen to podcasts while you accomplish other items on your to-do list, these resources are a great option.
Visit our new BALANCE page to start taking advantage of these new resources.
