April 18 NCUA Twitter Chat Will Focus on Personal Finances

Join the #NCUAChat Conversation to Hear About Improving Financial Well-Being

ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Personal finances and building financial security will be the focus of the National Credit Union Administration’s April 18 Twitter chat, part of the agency’s activities during Financial Capability Month.

The Twitter chat, scheduled for Tuesday, April 18, beginning at 11 a.m. Eastern, will focus on how credit unions can help consumers save, build credit and manage debt.

Credit unions and consumers can follow @MyCUgov and contribute to the conversation using the #NCUAChat hashtag on Twitter. Participants can submit questions in advance to socialmedia@ncua.gov.

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. Access NCUA’s Financial Literacy Resource center at NCUA.gov for more information.
