Consumer
Money skills program targets military couples
WASHINGTON (4/24/09)--One segment of Sunday’s H&FF Radio show zeros in on military couples, how one or more deployments can throw finances into a tailspin, and what’s being done to help them through difficult times. 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:
* “Pre-Nuptial Agreements,” with Katherine Stoner, author, educator, attorney, Stoner-Welsh, Pacific Grove, Calif.; * “Divorce: Separating Your Credit While Separating Your Lives,” with Maxine Sweet, vice president of public education, Experian, Allen, Texas; * “Military Couples and Personal Finance,” with Karen Jowers, staff writer, Military Times, Arlington, Va.; and * “Estate Planning,” with Mary Randolph, attorney, author, vice president of editorial, NOLO, Berkeley, Calif.
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, also known as WesCorp, and its member credit unions; and the Defense Credit Union Council and member credit unions, serving those who serve our country worldwide.
