Go Direct preps CUs for Financial Literacy Month
WASHINGTON (4/5/10)—The U.S. Treasury Department's direct deposit program, Go Direct, reminds credit unions and other national campaign partners to use financial literacy month as an opportunity to help members and customers “protect their money and improve their financial health by switching from paper checks to electronic payments for their federal benefits.” Go Direct has also provided additional resources for both financial institutions and community organizations via free materials for their members and customers. These materials include program overviews, newsletters, and other print and web-based resources. Go Direct is also looking ahead to May, when Older Americans Month begins. Financial institutions can use May to follow up on many of the same messages that are sent out during Financial Literacy Month, with a specific emphasis on seniors that currently receive their social security payments and other federal benefits via paper check. Go Direct has also provided a tool kit for financial institutions that wish to take part in Older Americans Month. For the Go Direct program’s April and May resources, use the resource links.
