TCF Offers an Improved Online Education Program to Help Adults with Finances
Survey after survey shows that adults are interested in taking courses or seeking expert advice on managing and improving their finances. A report last week found 85% of adults would like their employers to offer a financial wellness program at work.
TCF Financial Corporation has answered this call by announcing improvements to its free online financial education program. Not only is the company offering new courses and action plans, all adults who complete a course by September 30, 2016 have a chance to win a $1,000 CD from TCF.
New courses include Building Emergency Savings, Considering Home Ownership, Estate Planning, Retirement 101 and others. Each course ends with an action plan, which empowers participants to set financial goals and send emails to track their progress.
“Our financial education program is having a meaningful impact on the lives of people in the communities we serve,” said Craig R. Dahl, vice chairman and chief executive officer of TCF. “Earlier this year, 94% of adults who completed our financial education program told us they now are better prepared to make financial decisions. With new courses and action plans, our goal is to further strengthen the financial knowledge of every adult who participates in the program. We want them to feel more confident about their finances and be able to exercise the knowledge they gain, which is why ‘Financial Fitness’ is the perfect name for our improved program.”
TCF also sponsors high school classes for public school students in Minneapolis and Chicago. To date, they have reached more than 100,000 teens at 1,000 schools.
