March 30, 2017 by  

Having good credit can open doors for a lot of people, and an event that has been planned for Glastonbury will give members of the public an opportunity to learn how to protect theirs and make it work for them.

Pam Days-Luketich, who is the Assistant Vice President of Chelsea Grotton Bank, will be facilitating the session where she will be offering a range of advice related to building and maintaining credit. She will also be sharing information about what people can do should their current credit score be low. Brochures and other informational materials can be prepared for an event like this by a print company.

Days-Luketich will also be covering other related topics including what banks, finance companies, and other lenders will take into consideration when they are reviewing an individual’s credit score to decide whether or not to offer them a loan or other form of financing. According to the organizers, this score can have a far-ranging impact on someone’s life, including whether or not they can rent a particular home or even be offered the job of their dreams.

The ‘Credit Do’s and Don’ts’ workshop has been planned for the Welles-Turner Library, which is located at 2407 in Glastonbury. It will be held on April 26, and further information and an opportunity to register can be found on the community’s website.
