MoneySmart Week September 1 – 7 2014

MoneySmart Week will be running from Sunday 1st September to Saturday 7th September. The purpose of MoneySmart Week is to draw attention to financial literacy among all Australians and its importance in improving quality of life, planning for the future, improving financial security and general financial knowledge to make sound decisions. The Midland Information, Debt and Legal Advocacy Service Inc (MIDLAS) promotes this initiative, and believes that all Australians can “take simple steps to make a big difference to their finances.”  MoneySmart Week is a chance for you to conduct a “financial health check,” sort out any unexpected bills, and even take a look at those financial matters you had put into the ‘too hard basket.’

MIDLAS will be hosting an official MoneySmart event on Thursday the 4th September at the Centrepoint Shopping Centre in Midland from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM.  This shopping centre is located at 307 Great Eastern Hwy, Midland.  MIDLAS Financial Counsellors will be available at this event to assist you to complete a “money health check” and provide you with fact sheets and tips on how to improve your financial health. All results of the money health check are instant and private and confidential. The results can also be emailed to you if you prefer. MIDLAS Financial Counsellors will also be able to assists with other general financial queries.
