CUNA Supports Update to Financial Literacy Strategy
Posted May 05, 2016 by CUNA Advocacy

In a letter we filed with Treasury’s Financial Literacy and Education Commission, CUNA expressed its support for the Commission’s draft National Strategy for Financial Literacy Update.
As stated in the letter, “credit unions are a natural partner to assist [the Commission in achieving its] goal of increasing awareness of and access to effective financial education. [C]redit unions place a heavy emphasis on connecting directly with their members. This applies equally to answering a member’s question about a loan product as it does to educating a member on how to pay for college or save for retirement.”
