What’s Credit Got to Do With It?

On Thursday October 18th, United Way partnered with Rhinebeck Bank to host a financial literacy workshop at Dutchess Community College. The workshop was geared toward building, repairing, and maintaining credit. 

John Panzella, an expert in the realm of finance, delivered a masterful presentation on the ins-and-outs of credit. He covered a very wide spectrum of topics, ranging from what credit is, to how one’s credit score is determined, to the best methods for young people to start building credit.
