Extension Service to offer financial management classes

If you are planning your Christmas spending, financial management classes will be taught from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at the Jefferson County Extension Office, 500 S. Idaho St.

Classes will include budget development, money management, wise use of credit and consumer protection.

The cost of the class is $20 and it is approved by the United States Bankruptcy Trustee as a financial education program and complies with the laws enacted under the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act (BAPCPA). A Certificate of Debtor Education will be presented to bankruptcy filers who bring picture identification, their bankruptcy case number, and their attorney’s fax number.

County Extension family and consumer sciences agents, Jane Newton from Lincoln County, Diane Clement from Cleveland County, Michelle Carter from Bradley County, and Mary Ann Kizer from Jefferson County, will present the sessions.

To register for the money management course, contact Kizer at 870-534-1033 or e-mail mkizer@uaex.edu. Additional information on money management can be found at www.arfamilies.org.

The Cooperative Extension Service is part of the U of A Division of Agriculture, and offers its programs to all eligible persons regardless of race, color, national origin, religion, gender, age disability, marital or veteran status, or any other legally protected status.
