WHAT WE DO:
The National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) is the independent federal agency that regulates, charters and supervises federal credit unions. With the backing of the full faith and credit of the U.S. Government, NCUA operates and manages the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF), insuring the deposits of more than 95 million account holders in all federal credit unions and the overwhelming majority of state-chartered credit unions.
WHAT WE OFFER:
WHAT WE NEED:
To promote the financial well-being of credit union members and consumers nationwide, NCUA encourages credit unions, their member-owners, consumers, non-profits, local governments, and others to share and use the NCUA free financial literacy resources through MyCreditUnion.gov.
Launched in 2014, the redesigned tools and resources section of MyCreditUnion.gov is a one-stop shop for access to brochures, lesson plans, online calculators, budgeting worksheets, videos, games, and activities. Visit the new page at MyCreditUnion.gov.
View NCUA’s webinar “Financial Literacy: Putting Your Mission Into Action” to see an overview of NCUA’s financial literacy resources and also, how credit unions partner with schools and local community organizations to provide financial literacy and education. Take ideas back to your local credit union and to see if it is possible to start a financial literacy program or augment an existing program.
