Ulster Savings Bank and United Way to present Workshop on Navigating Household Finances

For Immediate Release


United Way of the Dutchess-Orange Region

Workshop on February 2 will focus on how to navigate household finances, prevent identity theft, and avoid becoming a victim of scams and fraud.

POUGHKEEPSIE & NEWBURGH, NY — You probably won’t be surprised to hear that, according to a recent report by Salary Finance, rising prices are eating away at most Americans’ standard of living. The report goes on to say that “As inflation pressures continue, two-thirds of working adults said they are worse off financially than they were a year ago.” 

If you are feeling the pinch or losing sleep over how to make ends meet, you may be interested in attending a free, online Financial Literacy Workshop on Thursday, February 2, co-sponsored by Ulster Savings Bank and United Way of the Dutchess-Orange Region.  Matthew Agor, a banking veteran of over 14 years with Ulster Savings Bank and working in the Newburgh branch for 7 years, will be the presenter.  The workshop is entitled Navigating Household Finances and the topics to be addressed include “Ten Rules for Personal Finance,” “Money Conversations – Talking Money 101,” “Banking in a Covid-19 World,” and “Corona Virus Scams.”  

To register, go to https://fundraise.givesmart.com/vf/finances.  After you register, a Zoom link will be sent to your email address a week prior to the workshop.
