Live Well SD Partner
The County Board of Supervisors launched Live Well San Diego in 2010 with the goal of achieving healthy, safe and thriving communities across the region by partnering with community and city leaders, schools, businesses, non-profit organizations and residents.
As a Live Well San Diego partner, SDCCU is working to improve overall economic well-being by engaging in several financial wellness efforts. Research shows that poor financial health can lead to diminished physical health. Also, evidence suggests that the average high-school graduate lacks basic skills to manage personal finances; that many young people have trouble balancing a checkbook; and half of Americans live paycheck to paycheck.
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau reports that people who don’t save are nearly three times more likely to have trouble in paying their bills and are more likely to report that finances control their lives. SDCCU is committed to helping change these statistics through the financial education of our communities.
