Financial Literacy

You should control your finances, not the other way around.

We want to help you gain a better understanding of your finances and make smarter financial decisions every day which is why we’ve been hard at work developing Financial Literacy resources for your use.

Finance Fridays
Thanks to #BSSBFinanceFridays you can gain a greater understanding of your finances with ease! On the first Friday of each month, we’ll post a new video explaining a financial function or tool. Have a topic you’d like to see explained? Email it to Lauren Piehl, our Financial Literacy Coordinator, at lpiehl@baystatesavings.com, or Ariana Dello Stritto, our Marketing Officer, at adellostritto@baystatesavings.com.
