Financial Wellness

Financial education is an important piece of Listerhill's mission of improving lives.

Balancing a budget, buying a home or car, and planning retirement are just a few of the important financial decisions most of us have to make at some point. As a credit union, we understand the importance financial education has in making the best decision for you and your family. That's why we have initiated several financial wellness programs to empower our members and the community to to become more financially secure and establish good habits for wise spending and saving.

What we do
Listerhill Event2
School Events

On high school and college campuses across throughout our community, Listerhill host events such as our popular Game of Life event where students go through a simulation of "real world" budget building. At the end of the game, each student gets a one-on-one debrief with one of our Financial Wellness experts. This gives students a peak into what their financial life may look like after school while reinforcing the importance of saving and spending responsibly.
