Southeast Texas Alliance for Economic Inclusion (AEI) announces “Free Credit Repair Saturday” on Saturday, Jan. 21.

The day will consist of free one-on-one credit counseling and financial education sessions about Identity Theft Detection & Prevention, Predatory Lending, Consumer Law, Budgeting and Credit Basics.

The free event will be held at the Student Center on the Lamar State College Orange campus from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and is open to the public.

AEI is the FDIC’s national initiative to establish broad-based coalitions of financial institutions, community-based organizations and other partners across the country to bring all under-banked and underserved populations into the financial mainstream. AEI believes all consumers should have reasonable access to full service banking and other financial services.
