A few weeks ago, college freshmen flocked to their schools of choice looking to learn and take that next step in life. But there's a startling stat that's sobering for our fine freshmen: 39% of incoming freshmen don't have a financial budget. At first, I thought that was really low. Then I remembered my freshmen year and all my freshmen classmates -- and that number is high, which is scarier still.
Well, CO-OP Financial Services wants to help change all that with its financial education tools and tips for credit unions to pass on to their studious members. To get curriculum on this program, we invited CO-OP's Chief Marketing Officer Samantha Paxson on the show to share with us four of the tools and tips along with how this advice can help further position credit unions as a valued financial resource and build long-term member relationships. Enjoy!
