First Financial Friday Webinars from JVS Human Services Offer Free Advice to Families and New Business for Best Banking Options
“It is very common for people to begin with a bank in their teens or early 20s and then never move from that bank, or ever check what new banking products are available,” explained Financial Capability Supervisor at JVS Human Services Laltsha Cunningham. “So many people just look at their statements and that’s it, while there could be additional benefits they aren’t receiving like, for example, a money market account which could provide interest.”
Cunningham said that the outcome of the pandemic was that many new businesses were created in metro Detroit and throughout Michigan. “In some cases, people started looking at their hobbies in a new way and businesses were launched.
These new entrepreneurs will likely need guidance on business banking. For example, there is documentation that might be needed for opening a business account and we will be addressing that in our program,” she explained.
