WorkLife has partnered with PEFCU to present a new feature for this year's Money Smart Week: the Purdue Piggy Bank Challenge. Purdue faculty, staff and retirees can participate by opening a Piggy Bank Challenge account during Money Smart Week. Only one account may be opened per family.

Those who participate can deposit up to $500 of their savings into a CD next spring and earn 10 percent annual percentage yield for six months. For more information, visit the information table in the Stewart Center lobby, which will be staffed from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. during Money Smart Week.
