EverTrust Bank participates in 2013 California Financial Literacy Month
Today, Ever Trust Bank joins with state, federal and local government agencies and financial literacy organizations to announce the 13th Annual California Financial Literacy Month (CAFLM). This coordinated consumer education campaign encourages individuals throughout the state to take full advantage of resources designed to improve financial literacy and increase decision making power.
This year’s theme – “Empowering Californians To Make Well-Informed Financial Decisions” -- highlights the importance of making well-informed financial decisions to achieve financial goals.
In recognition of CAFLM 2013, Ever Trust Bank and its partners are promoting free resources to help consumers manage money, credit, investments and debt and learn to avoid identity theft, protect their privacy, and steer clear of financial scams and fraud.
Regardless of your age or financial situation, there are important and useful lessons to learn about saving, investing and using credit. EverTrust Bank encourages everyone to make an effort to seek information about products you do not understand, compare the costs and fees of financial products and services and read the fine print before signing a contract.
EverTrust Bank offers FREE financial literacy program to the youth at title one schools. To find out if your school is qualified and/or require free financial course curriculum, please feel free to contact Stella Chang, CRA Officer, at 626-626-2919.
