Financial Education – Take Charge of Your Life

Financial decisions, large and small, occur at every stage throughout life.

RTN offers free financial seminars as part of its focus to give you the tools you need to make smart financial decisions. Financial education is part of our mission as a Credit Union to help our members be financially successful.

We host seminars in branches, at workplace locations of our Select Employee Groups (SEGs), and in partnership with community organizations. Our branch seminars are open to the public, and refreshments are served. Along with our great products and services, our financial seminars reflect our commitment to connect with you, and each of our members, as a trusted resource for your financial needs.

Registration is required for all seminars, as space is limited. Seminars may be cancelled up to 24 hours in advance. In case of cancellation, participants will be notified.

First-Time Home Buyer Seminars

RTN offers free, two-hour First-Time Home Buyers Seminars in branch locations and in the workplace. These seminars cover the home buyer process in detail – from pre-approval to move-in day. Topics include how to find a home, why good credit is important for financing, and what types of first-time home buyer programs are available.

In addition, RTN partners with Massachusetts Affordable Housing Alliance (MAHA) to offer a no-cost, comprehensive ten-hour, first-time home buyers seminar. Those completing all four sessions become eligible for a certificate that may help them qualify for a mortgage at some financial institutions or help with down payments and closing costs.

Those who attend one of RTN’s first-time home buyers seminars or complete all four classes of our ten-hour, first-time home buyers seminar will receive a $250 closing cost credit when taking a mortgage at RTN. For more information, email FinancialEducation@rtn.org or call 781-736-9945.
