Valley United Way offers financial, retirement education programs
Valley United Way is continuing its 2014 Financial Education Series with three programs. The first, on April 1, will be on fraud awareness & prevention, the second, on April 8, will be on getting retirement ready, and the third will be on May 13 talking about retirement income planning.
The April 1 program will be presented by Webster Bank and will be offered in Valley United Way’s Lavietes Conference Room at 5:30 p.m. Valley United Way is located at 54 Grove Street in Shelton.
This will be an opportunity to learn all about the ways that thieves try to steal personal information. With all the current news about credit card hacking, protecting privacy is more important than ever. This seminar will better prepare attendees for a world where identity theft, phishing, skimming and so many other new electronic devices put people at risk.
