NCUA offers widget for share insurance awareness toolkit
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (10/29/10)—The National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) on Thursday officially released its “Keep Your Money NCUA-safe” campaign online widget. The widget is a web-based advertisement that features clickable pictures and rotating messages about the NCUA’s share insurance. The widget may be added to websites, blogs, and social media pages. The widget, which can be installed by clicking on a “Get Widget” button on the NCUA’s homepage and following the resulting instructions, directs users to the NCUA’s “Keep your money NCUA-safe” campaign homepage. Users can then view resources related to the NCUA’s insurance fund public awareness campaign. Materials available on the site include an insurance coverage calculator and video PSAs that feature financial guru Suze Orman touting the benefits of the NCUA’s $250,000 credit union share insurance coverage. NCUA Chairman Debbie Matz said that the NCUA Share Insurance Campaign widget “is a simple yet very important way in which credit unions can get the message out about the safety of federally insured credit union deposits.” Matz also encouraged those that are “interested in consumer protection and financial education to take full advantage of this practical, easy-to-use tool.” For access to the NCUA’s online widget, click the image above.
