Direct Federal Launches Free, Online Financial Education Center 09/24/2019

Direct Federal Credit Union today announced the launch of an online, personalized financial education center, DirectLIFE , through its partnership with the nation’s leading education technology innovator, EVERFI, Inc. DirectLIFE  (Life Informed Financial Education) is available as a free resource to help Direct members and the community build financial health and confidence for themselves and their families. DirectLIFE can be accessed by visiting www.Direct.com/DirectLIFE.

DirectLIFE offers a library of learning topics around important personal financial education concepts including budgeting, investing, home ownership, retirement planning and more. Each topic is 3-6 minutes in length and is designed to enable learners to apply what they have learned to their personal financial goals. The mobile-first design is available on all internet-enabled devices so that learners can access it anytime, anywhere. 

“We are excited to expand on our existing financial literacy program with the introduction of DirectLIFE.  Financial knowledge is a foundational building block of financial wellness. To make good financial decisions now and in the future, consumers must learn how to understand the impact of those decisions. We are thrilled to be able to offer this free resource to our members and the community,” said Dave Walsh, Director of Community Relations at Direct Federal.

DirectLIFE is also available to all Direct@Work partners, Direct Federal’s bank-at-work program. Partners will be able to offer their employees a free financial education resource and will have reporting access to track which courses are taken by their employees.

“For more than 10 years EVERFI has built financial wellness solutions for leading financial institutions that understand the benefits of empowering people to make good financial decisions,” said EVERFI Co-Founder and President of Financial Education, Ray Martinez. “This program empowers financial institutions by allowing them to provide a truly holistic financial wellness approach that is personalized and engaging.”
