Message from the CEO
Friday, April 19, 2013
April is Financial Literacy Month and a great opportunity to take some time to look at any questions you may have about your current accounts or financial future. South Carolina Federal Credit Union is committed to providing useful financial information to the communities we serve through a variety of channels to fit your lifestyle—and the best part, they are all free. Your credit union provided free financial education to nearly 6,000 people last year!
Many of our team members visit local schools, libraries, churches and community groups to provide the tools and knowledge people need to prosper and gain financial freedom. I encourage you to attend a future seminar—you’ll find we offer a variety of topics, including understanding your credit score, planning for retirement, starting your business, buying a home, money management, tips for purchasing vehicles and more. You can register online at scfederal.org/seminars.
We also work to actively engage the 18–25-year-old “Generation Y” market through the Young & Free® South Carolina
program. Your credit union remains committed to developing financially savvy high school and college students, knowledgeable about financial responsibility, while working to keep things simple.
Keep a watch on our blog, simplecentsblog.org, for daily, helpful financial tips. Every Thursday, you will see a post from our Financial Education Manager, Leslie Howard. Leslie shares tips on budgeting, improving your credit score and teaching your kids about money. You can also reach out to Leslie to facilitate financial education opportunities within your community groups.
If a financial question pops up, post it to our Facebook® page at facebook.com/scfederal.
We want you to be a financially savvy member, so please take advantage of these free opportunities during Financial Literacy Month and throughout the year.
R. Scott Woods, President & CEO
