SEVCA offers money management workshop

WESTMINSTER — It is always easy to spend money, but keeping track of rising costs is difficult.

Join Southeastern Vermont Community Action's (SEVCA) Financial and Energy Coach Kevin O'Brien at a free workshop on Monday, April 10, from 6 to 8 p.m., at the Brooks Memorial Library's upstairs meeting room, to gain a clearer picture of money management opportunities. This workshop will also be streamed online.

The financial world is confusing and often predatory, but there are tools one can use to understand how to make the system work for them. Participants will review some of these tools and talk about current rebate and incentive programs that can help lower monthly costs.

Additional topics will include the basics of loans, credit score and credit reports, and understanding how to protect personal information, plus what to do if one's identity is stolen.

SEVCA's Financial and Energy Coach is supported through the Green Saving Smart program, which is guiding Vermonters to a sustainable financial future.
