It’s a classic Catch-22 of personal finance: You have to have a credit history to qualify for credit. And, you have to have credit to build a credit record. Similarly, if you’ve dinged up your credit record with careless habits, it’s hard to qualify for credit. Certainly, it’s hard to qualify for credit at anything near a reasonable rate of interest.
Members can learn how to best manage, build and repair their credit during United Labor Credit Union's (ULCU) (Kansas City) FREE “Paths to Creditworthiness” workshop to be held in Gladden Hall of the Visions Building, 6320 Manchester Avenue, Kansas City, MO, on Thursday, August 23, 2012, 6:30-8 p.m. The course instructor will be ULCU President Tim Vogler. Dinner will be served, and child care available. Each attendee will receive a bound workbook and a chance to win valuable raffle prizes. Registrations taken online, or by calling (816) 313-2848, by August 19.
