Bronx, NY, -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- April is the official Financial Literacy Month, and to support this concept RiteCheck has partnered with Consolidated Credit to offer free financial information to their employees and customers.

RiteCheck’s Human Resources manager originally contacted Consolidated Credit looking for ways to help employees improve their credit and better manage their finances. The result was not only a benefit for the employees but a program that RiteCheck could offer to their customers. KOFE is a financial educational program offered by Consolidated Credit that includes a dedicated hot line, website, and free in-store literacy materials.

Affordable debt consolidation programs are available as well.

Customers and employees alike can access the extensive library of articles and videos on diverse topics such as budgeting, credit cards, mortgages, and planning for retirement.

RiteCheck plans to have all employees take part on a webinar about credit repair during the month of April.

Consolidated Credit has helped over 5 million people find financial freedom for over 20 years. KOFE was created to bridge the gap between companies that provide only financial education and companies that provide only counseling. Through a myriad of financial literacy materials, resources, and counseling, they provide consumers with the tools they need to become a financial success story.

Rite Check Cashing and Financial Services Centers is a local chain of 12 retail locations that has been serving the needs of the community for 60 years. RiteCheck is licensed by the New York State Department of Financial Services and it is a highly renowned member of both the Financial Service Centers Association of New York (FSCNY) and the Financial Service Centers of America (FiSCA). RiteCheck has been nationally recognized for its groundbreaking work in partnering with local credit unions to bring banking services into communities where these financial institutions had no previous reach.
