HandFF Radio experts offer tips for tough times
WASHINGTON (4/17/09)--Policy experts on Sunday’s H&FF Radio show tackle a range of issues facing families during these tough times: helping military families get--and stay in--their home; helping lower-income families save for a home, education, or small business venture; and helping survivors cope when a spouse dies. Home & Family Finance airs Sundays at 3 p.m. EDT on the Radio America Network. The show also is carried on American Forces Radio Network. The one-hour program devoted to consumer finance issues is brought to you by America's credit unions and their 90 million members, and is presented by CO-OP Network. The Credit Union National Association (CUNA) and Radio America are podcasting Home & Family Finance through iTunes, Podcast Alley, Odeo, and other popular podcast library sites, as well as on Radio America and CUNA’s websites. Sunday’s show, which you also can hear later via the Internet, features Paul Berry, Washington, D.C., journalist and broadcaster, discussing these topics with special guests:
* “Military Homeowner’s Assistance Program,” with Katie Savant, deputy director, government relations, National Military Families Association, Alexandria, Va.; * “Fueling Fair Practices: A Road Map to Improved Public Policy for Used-Car Sales and Financing,” with John Van Alst, attorney, National Consumer Law Center, Boston Mass.; * “Individual Development Accounts (IDA)--A Savings Account for You?” with Leigh Tivol, senior program manager, CFED-Expanding Economic Opportunity, Washington, D.C.; * “Coping With Change When Your Spouse Dies,” with Susan Tiffany, director, personal finance information for adults, Center for Personal Finance, CUNA, Madison, Wis.; and * Your Questions Answered: Money Smart Things to Do With Your Income Tax Refund; Identity Theft; Three Ways to Waste Money on a Car.
Home & Family Finance is a resource center for personal finance information at CUNA. The radio show is sponsored by CO-OP Network, the national credit union ATM network; Cabot Creamery Cooperative, maker of award-winning cheddar; Western Corporate FCU (WesCorp) and its member credit unions; and the Defense Credit Union Council and member credit unions, serving those who serve our country worldwide.
