It’s Financial Literacy Month and the National Credit Union Administration has got lots to tweet about.
As part of a new month long Twitter campaign, the NCUA will tweet several financial tips daily from @TheNCUA, revolving around weekly themes ranging from tax tips and money management to investing, retirement and homeownership.
According to Debbie Matz, board chairman at NCUA, the move is designed as part of the agency’s ongoing commitment to reach out to new audiences and online communities.
“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,” said Matz.
