Taking Financial Literacy to the Next Level – One Employee and One Customer at a Time

At First Federal Lakewood, we are proud to be an institution that invests in our employees and communities through financial wellness courses. We understand that financial wellness is the key to success, which gives anyone access to learn the financial skills they need to buy their first home or help pay for their child’s education. That’s where our #GetWellwithFFL campaign and FFL University playlists come in.

Thanks to our long-standing partnership with EVERFI, a company dedicated to delivering these financial literacy courses, our dream of expanding financial wellness to employees and customers flourished.

#GetWellwithFFL began in January 2021, launching a yearlong campaign to grow the financial wellness of our employees and customers. For our employees, each quarter we had a dedicated topic module that they worked through and submitted. Each quarter’s program was partnered with a gift upon completion and our employees welcomed the program with open arms. On average, quarter over quarter, we reported 12 departments that had 100% participation and won both gifts.

Our bank’s mission revolves around supporting financial wellness for both our employees and the general public, and FFL University helps fulfill our mission. FFL University is a completely free online money management program and has been a hit ever since we launched among customers and non-customers alike.

Through a wide variety of popular financial topics, users can pick and choose which playlist they want to take. From mortgage modules to homebuying tips to learning about identity protection, FFL University has it all to prepare our customers for every aspect of life – no matter where they are in their financial journey.

It’s never too late to amp up your financial wellness. If you’re ready to begin your own journey, head over to FFL University to get started. (Be sure to share what you learned with us on our Facebook and Instagram pages, too!)
