Event Description

December 16, 2015 Updated Dec 16, 2015 at 9:19 AM EDT

The Purdue Cooperative Extension Service in Allen County continues to host the GET CHECKING workshop for the Bank On Fort Wayne initiative. This workshop is for clients and families who have never had
checking or savings accounts at a bank or credit union, mismanaged
accounts at banks and credits unions so those accounts are now closed without committing fraud, or have accounts, but continue to still use predatory lenders.

2016 Workshop dates include January 5, 1-5 pm; February 9, 1-5 pm; March 9, 5-9 pm; April 13, 1-5 pm; May 26, 5-9 pm, and June 21, 1-5 pm. Workshop topics include an introduction to the program as well as Choosing an Account Right for You; Managing Your Account; Keys to Successful Money Management and Credit. All workshops will be held at the Allen County Extension Office and are free and open to the public. Pre-registration by phone or mail is preferred. At the completion of the workshop, the participants will receive a certificate that will allow them to open an account at a participating bank or credit union.

For further information, to register or to receive a registration form, contact Vickie Hadley at the Allen County Extension Service, at 260-481-6826 or by email at hadleyv@purdue.edu, visit the Home & Money page on the website at www.extension.purdue.edu/allen or visit the office at 4001 Crescent Avenue, Fort Wayne, IN on the IPFW campus.
