Adult Financial Education Resources
Because financial education isn’t just for youth, Maine credit unions are active in helping adults with financial education including budgeting, first-time home buying, retirement and more. There are many resources available for adults of all ages to find out more about, or gain assistance with money management and personal finance. Click on any of the links below to get started.

AARP Money Management Program
Do you or someone you know need help? In partnership with AARP, this program offers money management services to individuals with lower incomes. Seniors and people with disabilities work with trained, bonded volunteers to help balance their checkbooks, write checks for signing, organize their mail and or develop a budget. Participants sign their own checks and retain full control of their bank accounts and other assets.
