YOUNGSTOWN – Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel’s office held a Veterans Smart Money Choices financial literacy workshop on Wednesday at Youngstown State University. This free financial literacy workshop was offered in partnership with Youngstown State University and the Mahoning County Veteran Service Commission and is part of Treasurer Mandel’s effort to help improve awareness of programs and resources available to veterans and their families.
“As we paused this week to thank and recognize our veterans, it is an opportune time to understand the challenges that our servicemen and women face while transitioning into civilian life,” said Treasurer Mandel. “Having the right financial tools to make smart money choices is an integral part of making that transition easier for those who have served. I am proud to help make these resources available to our veterans so they may continue serving their country and communities here at home.”
The Veterans Smart Money Choices Workshop is a free financial planning seminar for all of Ohio’s veterans, service members and their families. Key topics in the series include local benefits and financial assistance, budgeting, credit and debt management, investments, and identity theft and fraud prevention. Additional topics covered include homeownership, retirement and estate planning, and Social Security.
The event also included presentations and attendance from the Ohio Attorney General’s Office, Trinity Debt Management and various local organizations.
