Federal Credit Union
recently introduced their new Financial
Wellness Program by conducting a free seminar at the Herndon Senior
Center in Herndon, Virginia. During the presentation, “Preventing
Identity Theft and Fraud,” attendees learned from a member of Northwest
Federal’s Fraud Mitigation Team how to avoid scams, navigate the
internet, and better manage their personal and financial information.

“Senior citizens are particularly at risk of identity fraud, elder
abuse, and other financial scams,” said Northwest Federal’s Senior Vice
President of Member Experience, Jeff Margeson. “Financial literacy
minimizes that risk, and it’s our goal through the new Financial
Wellness Program to educate the community on a broad spectrum of
financial topics.”

Northwest Federal Credit Union’s Financial Wellness Program has held
seminars for the credit union’s company and community partners, local
schools and community centers on topics from identity theft to saving
for college. If you would like to learn more about Northwest’s Financial
Wellness Program, contact [email protected].
