FICO to Provide a Free Online Financial Education Event for San Diego Consumers

Congressman Juan Vargas to Address Importance of Financial Health at “Score a Better Future” Event

SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Leading analytics software firm FICO (NYSE:FICO) will host a free online financial education event with national and local nonprofit partners for San Diego-area consumers on February 22. Congressman Juan Vargas (CA-51) will provide remarks on the importance of financial education.

The event is part of FICO’s “Score A Better Future” program, which focuses on helping consumers improve their understanding of their credit and overall financial health. Consumers will learn from credit experts what the key ingredients are that make up the FICO® Score, and the myths and facts about FICO Scores, which are used by 90 percent of the top U.S. lenders.

I am thrilled that FICO chose San Diego to be the next stop for their ‘Score a Better Future’ program,” said Congressman Vargas. “For many in my district and across the country, strong credit scores serve as the door to a first home, needed transportation, and ultimately taking charge of one’s financial wellbeing. It is crucial that my constituents seek financial education opportunities to better understand their credit scores.”

FICO has partnered with Operation HOPE to provide attendees with the opportunity to make appointments for free one-on-one credit coaching from non-profit financial well-being coaches to help attendees develop a plan to address their financial goals.
