Valley United Way offers financial education

Valley United Way is kicking off its 2014 Financial Education Series with two timely programs.

The first on Jan. 21 will focus on Fraud Awareness & Prevention and the second on Feb. 4 will be on Financial Planning for college.

The January program will be presented by Webster Bank and will be offered in the Lavietes Conference Room at Valley United Way offices, 54 Grove St., Shelton.
This will be an opportunity to learn all about the ways that thieves try to steal personal information. With all the current news about credit card hacking, protecting privacy is more important than ever.
This seminar will better prepare you for a world where identity theft, phishing, skimming and so many other new electronic devices put you at risk unless you know how to protect yourself.

The February session will be hosted and presented by Ion Bank at its branch office, 75 Tremont St., Ansonia.
Ion Bank’s John DeLeo will conduct a workshop on college planning. Next to the purchase of a home or planning for retirement, there is probably no financial issue more important for a family to consider.
The cost of higher education is more expensive than ever and rising much faster than inflation, and this program will provide valuable information on how to plan.

Both sessions are provided free of charge; reservations are highly recommended as seating is limited.
Reservations may be made at or by calling 203-926-9478.
