Benefit Details:

AFGE members are worried about financial security every day – about credit card debt, retirement, and college tuition. 

It’s time to replace worry with education. Members are entitled to take a no-cost course from AFGE’s partner, Grantham University, on personal financial management. Grantham University is an accredited university, founded in 1951. The course is 100% online so you can complete it anywhere you have Internet access. 

Once members pass the no-cost course, they will have the tools they need to get –and stay –on a strong financial foundation. Plus: when a member passes the course, you immediately earn 3 hours of college credit! 

This incredible opportunity is limited to the first 1,000 AFGE members who apply – so don't delay and reserve your spot now. 

Course topics include:

  • Budgeting
  • Debt and Credit Rating 
  • Goal Setting
  • Investing
  • Retirement and Estate Planning
  • Saving
  • Taxes and Insurance
  • Continuous Learning 

Through the course members will gain a solid foundation on which to build a financial future, and be able to work together with loved ones to make knowledgeable, healthy financial decisions that will benefit the whole family.
