A financial literacy program emphasizing financial education, access to affordable financial services and financial capability to make smart money management decisions can improve an individual’s overall financial well-being. NCUA’s webinar, part of the agency’s National Financial Literacy Month activities, will provide participants with valuable information on several topics, including:
- The link between financial literacy and financial well-being;
- NCUA’s financial literacy resources;
- Building a successful financial literacy program based on credit union size and member demographics; and
- Improving financial literacy efforts through local and national partners.
Under the Federal Credit Union Act, promoting financial literacy is a core credit union mission. While credit unions serve the needs of their members and promote financial literacy within the communities they serve, NCUA works to reinforce credit union efforts, raise consumer awareness and increase access to credit union services. NCUA also participates in national financial literacy initiatives, including the Financial Literacy and Education Commission, an interagency group created by Congress to improve the nation’s financial literacy and education.
