Telhio Credit Union Participates in America Saves Week

Telhio Credit Union is a proud participant in America Saves Week, an annual national campaign that encourages and empowers individuals, families, employers, and communities to check-in on their finances. The objective of the campaign is to increase Americans' financial confidence by receiving a clear view of their finances and identifying new strategies to meet their spending and saving goals. Several financial topics are highlighted through a realistic economic approach, including saving for emergencies and unexpected expenses, leveraging automatic savings, retirement, and reducing debt; as well as more niche topics like talking to your family about money, understanding your employer's financial wellbeing benefits, and the mental and emotional effects of financial stress. The 2024 theme for the campaign is "Saving for What Matters Most," and takes place from April 8-12. As a participant of America Saves Week, Telhio will be sharing financial education resources on social media and through their website,

Telhio understands the importance of financial education and is committed to providing information and resources to help individuals make informed decisions about their finances. By participating in America Saves Week, Telhio aims to reach a wider audience and empower more people to take control of their financial well-being.
