"Take Control of Your Finances" is a workshop that offers information to those who are unemployed, underemployed, laid-off or dislocated. Its focus is to help attendees reduce the stress that often comes with these situations by developing a plan to survive and continue to meet their needs until a new job opportunity develops.
Topics include: filing for unemployment benefits, resources available to help with employment search, talking with family about finances, developing a budget, prioritizing debts, contacting creditors, avoiding scams and predatory lenders, considering available community resources and more.
The program is operated in collaboration with Business and Industry under a state contract with the Department of Economic Development. Local Career Centers work with Extension Financial Education Specialists to serve individuals and arrange the workshops.
