Utilities Employees Credit Union Launches Digital Financial Education Initiative for Utility Workers and Their Families
Wyomissing, PA – Utilities Employees Credit Union (UECU) announced the launch of an interactive, online financial education initiative through their new partnership with the nation’s leading education technology innovator, EVERFI, Inc. The program CueItUp is available as a complimentary resource to help UECU members learn how to manage their finances and plan for the future.
“We are excited to provide a comfortable, virtual and personal way for our members to learn how to manage finances better, prepare for big purchases, feel confident about retirement, and more,” says UECU VP of Member Experience, Terry Larkin. “CueItUp is a remarkable resource for our members to share with their children, too.”
According to Bankrate, 63% of Americans do not have enough money saved to cover a $500 emergency. Additionally, 25% of employees surveyed by PwC say financial wellness with access to unbiased counselors is the most desired employer benefit they don’t already have. UECU is committed to empowering their members with the skills they need to confidently manage their personal finances today and into the future.
CueItUp offers an assortment of financial education learning topics, with subjects including building emergency savings, preparing to buy a home and retirement planning. Each learning topic takes only 2-5 minutes and is designed to encourage participants to build financial confidence via a series of interactive activities. CueItUp is accessible via computer, mobile phone, and tablet.
