2021 Community Commitment Awards Submission

  • Entry Category: Financial Education
  • Asset Size: Small

Ulster Savings Bank continues to monitor the impacts of the current COVID-19 pandemic and is proactively taking actions to give our clients, teammates, and community the financial tools they need in these unprecedented times. Ulster Savings provides numerous free online resources to help during a difficult time when most were in lock down mode due to the pandemic.

We’ve partnered with EverFi, the online financial tool that we share, at no charge, with our customers as well as for anyone who visits our website: https://ulster.everfi-next.net/welcome/customer

We support early money management skills by offering banking products to students from pre-school to college and beyond because financial literacy doesn’t stop after school. We offer the tools and resources to learn about how to own a home, prepare for retirement, small business essentials, and financial caregiving. These products give people the opportunity to learn about the roadmap to financial strength.

Together with our online tools, Ulster Savings has worked closely with area schools by offering virtual (and now in-person) classroom teaching money smart skills. Sadly, many school curriculums do not include this important subject.
