eFitness: An Online Financial Fitness Program

Take part in a six week, e-mail based financial education program.

 

How does it work?

The eFitness Challenge is a 6-week, e-mail-based, confidential, financial improvement program consisting of three modules. E-mails will be sent to you at the beginning of each module with instructions and tips to get you started down the path towards improving your financial health.

Each module will consist of a Webcast, attachments, and links that you can view and complete on your own time and at your own pace. By the end of the challenge, you will have created a more effective budget, learned tips for building your credit score and much, much more. There will even be a grand prize drawing for everyone who completes all three modules and the follow-up survey.

Signing up is easy! Simply e-mail your name to memberedu@sefcu.com and we'll send everything right to you.
