BayPort Credit Union has launched an exclusive partnership with mobile financial literacy app provider Zogo.
BayPort is using the app to help bring accessible and engaging financial education to Hampton Roads members of all ages, a release stated. During a time when much of routine life has halted due to the pandemic, and families are spending more time at home, Zogo is interactive learning the whole family can do together.
“At BayPort, we believe you’re never too young or too old to learn,” said BayPort President/CEO Jim Mears. “We’re committed to educating our members on financial wellness and stability. And through our partnership with Zogo, we can continue to educate our members, which is what this is all about.”
The interactive app uses 300+ bite-sized learning modules on a variety of different financial topics, ranging from budgeting to credit score, to insurance and investing. Users start each module by learning five concepts before taking a five-question quiz. Users earn points by completing each module. Accumulate enough points, and users win a $5, $10, and $15 gift card to the store of their choice.
Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, BayPort was conducting free financial education events across Hampton Roads on a variety of topics addressing members’ financial concerns. In addition, the credit union recently introduced Credit Score.The free service allows members to monitor their credit score, access their full credit report, take advantage of credit monitoring alerts, and receive tips to improve their credit score. The Zogo app is available at no cost to members of BayPort Credit Union at both the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. To learn more, visit www.bayportcu.org/learn/zogo.
BayPort FCU has a branch on Route 17 at Hayes.
