“Banking for Seniors” Program
All Peoples Community Center has been awarded a Capital One Grant for a new Senior Financial Literacy Program.
The “Banking for Seniors” Program is designed to address the need of increasing on-line banking experience for the elderly. With the increase of technology, there has been changes in how the elderly receive social security, retirement or annuity income. There has also been changes with options to pay bills on-line or receive payments from family members through PayPal etc. In addition, many business have shifted to on-line purchases. Often our elderly have not transitioned into this new phase. On-line banking may enhance security such as stolen checks etc., but it also has the potential for abuse through scams and lack of knowledge of security protocols. Our program is designed to reach those persons who have not utilized on-line banking or with limited knowledge of its potential to improve their banking options.
“Banking for Seniors” will be available for persons 55 years and older to participate in a 4-week program facilitated by Capital One staff entitled “Ready Set Bank”. The session will be 1 hour per week and after each session, participants will have the opportunity to go to computer lab for 1 hour of hands on experience and practice. We anticipate an overall increase in the use of on-line banking, opening accounts, bill pay and review of bank products for seniors in our South LA Community. At the completion of the series, individuals will be referred for financial coaching or literacy classes offered by All Peoples Community Center.
