The NCUA is kicking off Financial Literacy Month with a string of tweets about…wait for it…financial literacy. Good idea, right?
Right. It’s awesome, actually. The daily tips from @TheNCUA will cover topics from taxes to money management, investing and more. The move, according to the NCUA, is designed to reach out to credit union members and other Americans in hopes of improving financial literacy across the country.
Debbie Matz, board chairperson at NCUA stated, “Credit unions need to reach out to younger members in order to grow and thrive in the future, and social media is a key way in which these younger members get news and information. By retweeting NCUA’s postings, credit unions can reach out to and educate this important demographic about how to better manage money.”
I love things like this. As a kangaroo, i don’t always have time for every tweet out there…so it’s nice to know I can focus on these ones this month and really improve my finances.
