ALEXANDRIA, Va. (April 5, 2019) – The National Credit Union Administration will promote consumer financial preparedness during the Financial Literacy and Education Commission’s National Financial Capability Month campaign (opens new window).
The NCUA today released a new video (opens new window) highlighting its redesigned MyCreditUnion.gov (opens new window) consumer website. This will be the first in a new series of videos on consumer money management and financial information resources the agency will post on its Facebook page.
On April 10, beginning at 1 p.m., the NCUA will join the Federal Emergency Management Agency for a Twitter chat on financial planning and budgeting. Credit unions and consumers are encouraged to follow the conversation and contribute using the #FinancialChat hashtag.
MyCreditUnion.gov includes information on topics like cost of education, homeownership, retirement, saving and managing debt, most of which are available in English and Spanish (opens new window). NCUA.gov also hosts a Financial Literacy and Education Resource Center. Consumers can find and share additional tips and best practices on protecting their financial well-being on the NCUA’s Facebook (opens new window) and Twitter (opens new window) sites, as well.
The NCUA is one of 19 federal agencies who are members of the Financial Literacy and Education Commission, which was established in 2003 to develop a national financial education website (opens new window) and a national strategy on financial education.
Under the Federal Credit Union Act, promoting financial capability 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 reinforces credit union efforts, raises consumer awareness, and increases access to credit union services.
