Your Credit Union is committed to doing what's right for you, our members and owners, not what will make us the most money. The Police Moneywise Course supports this objective and is linked to our vision 'to make a real difference to the financial wellbeing of our police family'.
This course is for everyday people wanting to take control of their finances. It provides participants with impartial and relevant information. The course doesn't provide personal financial advice or sell or market any financial services, products or organisations.
This joint initiative with NZ Police will provide free financial capability courses for all police employees.
Your Credit Union has partnered with the Commission for Financial Capability and their Sorted Workplace programme www.sorted.org.nz to create the Police Moneywise Course. The Commission is an independent Crown Entity formerly known as the Retirement Commission. The Commission's affiliated facilitators deliver the course - they are independent along with the course content and not aligned to any financial products, services or organisations.
Participation is voluntary and free.
The Police Moneywise Course will be available to all Police Districts, PNHQ and Communication Centres during this year and dependent on demand, will continue through until 2018 at which stage other Credit Union members will be invited to participate.
See the Police Intranet for when it will be available in your district.
