"When you are in great shape financially, you are less worried, stress free and feel much better," said Chatzky, director of education at SavvyMoney and financial editor for the "Today" show.
After her speech at the Washington, D.C., expo, she spent one-on-one time with attendees, signing copies of her "Money Rules: The Simple Path to Lifelong Security."
More than 60 credit union representatives helped hundreds of attendees complete the SavvyMoney checkup at the Dollars & Sense Credit Union Pavilion.
The pavilion and Health and Fitness Expo advertising were made possible by 20 participating credit unions; MDDCCUA and its D.C. and Suburban Maryland chapters; the Virginia Credit Union League; the Credit Union Foundation of MD and DC; the National Credit Union Foundation; SavvyMoney; and CUNA.
