When it comes to your financial security, are you covered for the “what if” situations faced by women just like you? Women of all ages are invited to attend a free financial workshop, “Women & Money II: Are You Covered?” on Thursday, May 21, 2015, at 6:00 p.m., at Mid Oregon Credit Union, 1386 NE Cushing Drive, Bend. The workshop presenter will be Lori Raab, KBNW Program Director at Horizon Broadcasting Group. Call 541-382-1795 to reserve your seat. Light refreshments will be served.

Nearly two-thirds of U.S. women ages 40-79 already have dealt with a major financial life crisis such as job loss, divorce, the death of a spouse, or serious illness, according to AARP. There’s no cost to attend. At the workshop, you’ll learn how to protect your credit rating, avoid fraud, prepare for “what if” situations, and have adequate insurance in place. You’ll also start to develop your own personal action plan.
