Seniors, join us for a series of 7 workshops to help you set and reach financial goals, make good financial decisions and stay financially stable while avoiding scams and other financial abuse! These sessions will be provided by ESOP (Empowering and Strengthening Ohio’s People).
ESOP will offer a matched savings account for senior participants. Each month, you save $10 to $50 a month and at the end of 12 months, ESOP will match up to $500 that you can use any way you like! You must attend at least 5 of the 7 workshops in the series and 5 free counseling sessions with the workshop leader to qualify for the matching amount. Counseling sessions may be in person or by phone.
Workshops are based on both the “Money Smart for Older Adults” curriculum developed by the CFBP and FDIC and the “AARP Finances 50+” curriculum.
