Financial Wellness and Homebuyer Education

If you’re looking to buy a home – or stay in the home you already own – repair your credit, pay down your debt or just learn more about how to manage your money and make sound financial decisions, our Financial Wellness and Home Mortgage Program is the place to turn. Bi-monthly home mortgage workshops and quarterly workshops on managing credit and financial wellness are offered at Fund headquarters, and our staff members are also available to meet with you one-on-one.

Purchasing a home is one of the most complicated — and costly — decisions you may make.

Your Benefit Fund can help take the guesswork out of the process. Our staff will help you secure an affordable, low-interest mortgage from a lender you can trust. And, if you’re vested in the Health Care Employees Pension Fund or the Greater New York Pension Fund, you may be able to borrow from your pension to cover the closing costs for a house, co-op or condominium.

If you’re thinking about buying a home, drop by one of the Home Mortgage Program’s upcoming workshops. You can also stop by the Financial Wellness and Home Mortgage Program’s Manhattan office at 330 West 42nd Street, Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, for a free, one-on-one Home Buyer’s Consultation with a member of the Home Mortgage and Financial Wellness team.
