BPS-Sberbank held Days of Financial Literacy for People of Pension Age
Pensioners are quite active users of banking services, but often they simply lack of knowledge and experience in using all modern technologies.
BPS-Sberbank endeavors to make the life of retirees more comfortable. On a regular basis the bank carries out activities aimed at improving the pensioners’ financial literacy.
There are many reasons why pensioners do not want to use payment cards and self-service machines: the fear of all that is new, the inability to use ATMs and self-service terminals, the fear of being cheated, and many others.
In this case, the banks’ objective is to help the older generation find their bearings in a variety of financial products and services, as well as overcome all possible fears and concerns. The main objective of the activities carried out by BPS-Sberbank is to dispel fear and doubt associated with the use of bank cards and modern methods of making payments.
BPS-Sberbank held Days of financial literacy for people of pension age twice. From 5 to 8, May 2014 events were coincided with Victory Day, more than 800 retirees in 33 bank offices throughout the country attended them. Based on the first positive experience, in the period of 2 to 9 July, 2014 22 BPS-Sberbank offices across the country were excited to welcome another 460 guests in honor of the celebration of Independence Day of the Republic of Belarus.
