The Harvard Benefits Office has partnered with the Harvard University Credit Union (HUECU) on a summer series of four Financial Education Workshops called Kick$tart Your Finances. These workshops will cover topics such as how to save for an emergency fund, information on credit scores, credit reports, FICO, how to compare credit card offers and how to prioritize debt repayment. You don’t need to sign up for all four workshops, just the ones you want to attend. Workshops are open to all employees, even if you are not a member of the credit union.
