"As part of our ongoing effort to help our community thrive, we are pleased to launch Personal Finance Empowered, a digital financial education platform that offers training and information for financial decisions that consumers face every day," said Heather Ellison, head of Retail Banking for OneWest Bank.
Personal Finance Empowered modules focus on more than 30 different topic areas including mortgage education, building emergency savings, paying for college and retirement planning. Each area is composed of a variety of three 10-minute modules designed to encourage participants to build financial confidence through a series of interactive activities.
"With modules available at various knowledge levels, and in both English and Spanish, we are aiming to empower a broad range of individuals with the financial agility they need no matter where they are in their financial life cycle," Ellison continued.
In addition to this week's launch of the self-service Personal Finance Empowered platform, OneWest plans to offer workshops based on the curriculum throughout its network of branches across Southern California.
