WorkLife Programs provides financial services, classes to employees

February 9, 2011

Through a partnership between Human Resources WorkLife Programs and Purdue Employees Federal Credit Union, all employees have access to free, confidential credit counseling services. In addition to the services offered through PEFCU, WorkLife Programs also will hold a series of noon-hour financial workshops for Purdue Saves Week, Feb. 21-25.
Employees who have questions about their finances or are struggling with a financial challenge can take advantage of these local resources. PEFCU credit counselors can help with balancing accounts, preparing a budget, reviewing your credit report, solving short-term challenges, and planning for future needs.
