Tulsa Financial Empowerment Center (FEC) and Bank On Tulsa will celebrate National Financial Awareness Day on Saturday, August 14, with an in-person event from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The event will be held at Tulsa FEC on 1667 S. Yale Ave. Anyone is welcome to attend with no prior appointment to obtain a free credit report, get one-on-one help interpreting their credit report, and learn about Tulsa FEC’s financial counseling services offered at no cost.
To date, FEC counselors have helped 119 clients and held 330 financial sessions. FEC clients have built $40,152 in savings and reduced $14,375 in debt.
Bank On Tulsa, FEC’s partner for the August 14 event, connects consumers to safe, affordable bank or credit union accounts that are nationally certified as meeting Bank On National Account standards. Their objective is to bring low-cost financial institution services to low-and moderate-income Tulsans. Bank On Tulsa is supported by a grant from the Cities for Financial Empowerment Fund.
