Financial Fitness

ELGA Credit Union promotes financial wellness by offering FREE Financial Fitness workshops located in our branches in Genesee, Lapeer, and Saginaw counties. Our seminars help move you forward on the best path for your specific circumstances. All classes are designed and taught by ELGA’s award-winning financial educator, Lori Hawk.

Financial Fitness seminars are ready to meet you where you are financially and give you the tools to move forward from there. The budgeting skills you gain help put money back into your budget and allow you to start working on your next big goal.

Many of the seminars are built on skills learned, so attend as many as you can. You can jump in any time, and skip those that don't apply.

If you would like our success coach to work with you one on one, paid time is available. You can choose to work on individual budgeting, meal planning, weighing out big financial decisions, and how to use the other tools taught in our seminars.

When emergencies happen, we need to know we have the funds to cover them. Emergencies range from needing new tires on your car to a household repair. We all have expenses for which we didn’t budget and not having to pay for it on credit or run to a pay day cash advance store is the goal. Discussions include benefits of selling on different sites such as Ebay, Facebook Marketplace, Poshmark and Amazon. We also talk about the benefits of tax deductions for leftover unsold items.

Paying your kids a weekly allowance is so much cheaper than buying them things each time they ask for it. When you make them work for it, they appreciate it. When they have to pay for it themselves, they make better decisions. By helping your kids in this way, you will be serving them and their future spouse by teaching them important things when it really matters.
