Plan your next financial steps!
The Connecticut Lottery Corporation and Credit Unions Building Financial Independence (“CUBFI”),
a 501(c)3 charitable non-profit organization helping people build and maintain financial independence, have teamed up to offer a financial literacy and education campaign for lottery winners known as Wise Winnings. This joint effort is the first-of-its-kind in the country and offers no-cost financial advice from not-for-profit credit union financial counselors to Connecticut Lottery cash prize-winners, along with helpful tips on making a plan for a sudden windfall.
The program provides winners with an avenue to find, and meet with, no-cost financial counselors, certified with the Credit Union National Association (“CUNA”), throughout the state to create an individualized guide for their money.
Wise Winnings is part of the Connecticut Lottery’s larger responsible gambling efforts, which include educational campaigns and materials on how to gamble safely, monetary and in-kind contributions towards problem gambling programs and services, retailer and employee trainings, and more.
