ALEXANDRIA, Va. (2/24/15)--New financial education resources have been released online by the National Credit Union Administration, as part of efforts for America and Military Saves Week, taking place this week.
CUNA, as one of the coordinators of America Saves Week, and credit unions are encouraging their members to look at ways to open or add wealth-building accounts, save automatically through direct deposit services, or pledge that they will save.
The NCUA's Pocket Cents site has been updated for both America Saves Week, as well as Military Saves Week. Each site has tailored information for the financial needs of different kinds of credit union members.
The NCUA has also posted information for credit unions about America Saves and Military Saves week.
NCUA will again host a Twitter chat on savings strategies Feb. 26, starting at 11 a.m. (ET). Credit unions and consumers can follow @MyCUgov and contribute to the conversation using the #NCUAChat hashtag on Twitter.
Kenneth Worthey, Financial Literacy and Outreach Analyst with NCUA's Office of Consumer Protection, will join staff of America and Military Saves to share the latest on national savings rates, provide tips on developing healthy savings habits and identify resources to help maximize those savings.
America Saves Week and Military Saves Week are national campaigns meant to unite government, nonprofit and corporate groups to encourage individuals and families to save and build personal wealth.
