Be Proactive and Learn How to Increase Your Credit Score.

Travis Credit Union invites the community to a free community wellness event. Residents will learn the benefits—and costs—of credit cards, the different types of credit, the difference between your credit report and credit score, how to figure your credit limit and how to build a good credit history.

The free seminar is open to the public on Wed. March 11, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at Concord Senior Center, 2727 Parkside Circle, Concord, CA.

Managing money effectively

“Financial Education is important because it equips us with the knowledge and skills we need to manage money effectively. Without it our financial decisions and actions we take—or don’t take—lack a solid foundation for success,” said Barry Nelson, president and CEO of Travis Credit Union.

  • Nearly half of Americans don’t expect to have enough money to retire comfortably.
  • Credit card debt has reached its highest point ever.
  • Forty percent of Americans can’t afford a $400 emergency expense

“Financial education is important because it is one of things that will encompass just about every aspect of a person’s life,” added Nelson. “Our goal here is to maximize whatever level of income a person has and to positively transform their financial life.”
