NCUA updates its Spanish-language website
Oct. 11, 2013 – NCUA has updated its Spanish-language version of its consumer website, MyCreditUnion.gov, and its financial literacy site, Pocket Cents, in recognition of National Hispanic Heritage Month.
The updated, translated site, at espanol.mycreditunion.gov, makes it easier for more consumers to get information about saving, borrowing, managing credit and, among other things, resolving complaints.
“During the last two decades, the number of Spanish speakers in America has more than doubled. Today, more than 36 million Americans speak Spanish at home,” NCUA Board Chairman Debbie Matz said in a statement Thursday. “It is critical that these Spanish speakers have access to reliable resources for financial information. NCUA’s MyCreditUnion.gov and Pocket Cents provide consumers with timely and practical tips to assist them on their path to financial security. I encourage everyone to take full advantage of all the tools we have made available to them free of charge.”
The sites offer consumers advice about how to get a free credit report each year, how to protect themselves from financial scams, how credit unions work, where to find a credit union and how to start one. NCUA has updated the site so children can now play the popular personal finance game, Hit the Road, in Spanish.
