Team offers workshops to build financial awareness

Credit impacts more than interest rates on loans. Learn how to better manage your credit, what is on a credit report, and how credit reports are used by others.

The presentation is Wednesday, Sept. 11, at 6 p.m. at Team, 30 Elizabeth Street, Derby. This 90-minute workshop covers ways to obtain and monitor your credit report and how to restart credit.

Each month, Team Inc. offers financial workshops called SAFE (Savings, Assets and Financial Education) concerning financial health and financial safety.

These free workshops are developed to help individuals and families manage personal finances and provide a community dialog about financial literacy.

In addition to credit reports, workshops are being planned for October addressing the new health insurance options, Social Security issues in November and steps to starting your own business in December.

To learn more about these workshops, visit Team’s website at for the calendar of events. To register for any SAFE workshop, call 203-736-5420, ext. 209.
