Extension Service to offer financial management classes

Financial management classes, including budget development, money management, wise use of credit, and consumer protection will be taught Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Jefferson County Extension Office, 500 S. Idaho St.

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.

The sessions will be presented by County Extension family and consumer sciences agents — Jane Newton, Lincoln County; Diane Clement, Cleveland County; Michelle Carter, Bradley County; and Mary Ann Kizer, Jefferson County.

To register for the money management course, contact Kizer at 870-534-1033 or e-mail mkizer@uaex.edu.
