WASHINGTON (12/31/12)--Sunday's Home & Family Finance Radio program covered financial literacy, college financing and elder financial abuse. This past week's show was a rebroadcast and was recorded at the Montana Credit Union Network's 75th annual convention and expo in Billings, Mont.

The show, which you also can hear later via the Internet, featured Paul Berry, Washington, D.C., journalist and broadcaster, discussing these topics with special guests:

  • "Financial Literacy." Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.) discussed the importance of financial literacy in today's economy.

  • "Elder Financial Abuse." Denise Armstrong, executive director, Big Sky Senior Services, Billings, Mont., explained how to recognize and prevent elder financial abuse.

The radio show is sponsored by CO-OP Network, the national credit union ATM network; Cabot Creamery Cooperative, maker of award-winning cheddar; and the Defense Credit Union Council and member credit unions, serving those who serve the country worldwide.
