Free financial education seminars offered

DEARBORN – Dearborn Public Library and DFCU Financial are teaming up to offer financial education seminars on Sept. 29, Oct. 20 and Nov. 10 to help people strengthen their financial muscle and make their money work for them.

The seminars will be presented by Charles Hoff, an accredited financial counselor through the Association for Financial Counseling and Planning Education, who has been with DFCU Financial for more than 15 years.

The first step in a financial fitness plan is to set up a budget. Debt-Free Living, on Sept. 29, will discuss how to develop and use a budget to help people achieve their long-range goals.

The second seminar, Pre-Retirement Wealth Builder, on Oct. 20, will teach people strategies to money management that will help get them to retirement in a financially healthy state.

The series ends with Post-Retirement Wealth Retention on Nov. 10, and this seminar will provide people guidance on how to preserve what they’ve accumulated while offering ideas on how to live comfortably on less income during retirement.

The seminars will be held from 10:30 a.m. to noon in the auditorium of Henry Ford Centennial Library, 16301 Michigan Ave..

There is no cost to attend, but registration is required. Sign up for one, two, or all three seminars by calling 313-943-2330.
