Credit Unions across the country have long led the charge to bolster financial literacy in their respective service areas. Schools and community groups embrace the educational offerings of their local credit unions. Lately, the financial education trend has even been promoted by institutions outside the financial realm.
The need for and popularity of financial literacy programs has prompted a cooperative between the NCUA (National Credit Union Administration) and AARP (American Association of Retired Persons).
The organizations are teaming up “to work on a series of initiatives aimed at promoting financial education and outreach, helping consumers achieve financial security and increasing access to responsible and affordable financial services.”
