“Credit Matters”
Hamilton State Bank’s financial literacy program, “Credit Matters,” is designed to reach members in our communities who need this information most such as seniors in high school, individuals who are joining the work force or disadvantaged individuals who are making a fresh start.  “Credit Matters” is a component of the bank’s Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) initiative.  The bank has a designated team of financial literacy educators who are available to provide training to selected groups that meet certain criteria.
Subjects covered through ”Credit Matters” include:

  • Using a Checking Account

  • What is a Credit Report
