Feb. 26, 2013 – NCUA marked the beginning of America Saves Week and Military Saves Week with the debut of a new look for its free consumer websites and a video from Chairman Debbie Matz about the value of saving.
NCUA says the newly designed websites – MyCreditUnion.gov and the financial literacy microsite Pocket Cents – are more user-friendly and provide consumers with access to more information.
Matz’s video, “Your Financial Future Is Brighter With Savings,” is another part of NCUA’s ongoing efforts to better educate consumers.
“We’ve made two valuable consumer tools better,” NCUA Board Chairman Debbie Matz said. “MyCreditUnion.gov and Pocket Cents provide consumers with the information needed make better financial decisions for their lifestyles and goals. I hope consumers will regularly use this information now available on both our consumer and financial literacy websites.”
The video calls consumers’ attention to the importance of developing and keeping good savings habits, Matz added. “That’s an important step towards building a solid financial future.”
NAFCU representatives are at the Pentagon this week to help with Military Saves Week activities (see story).
