#NCUAChat to Educate Consumers on Protecting Wallets, Personal Information

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (April 14, 2016) – To help consumers protect their money and personal information from consumer financial fraud, which affects millions of Americans each year, the National Credit Union Administration will host a live Twitter chat.

The Twitter chat is scheduled for Wednesday, April 27, beginning at 11 a.m. Eastern. Credit unions and consumers can follow @MyCUgov and contribute to the conversation using the #NCUAChat hashtag on Twitter. Participants can submit questions in advance to During the chat, NCUA will share tips from on how consumers can protect their finances and resources available on the agency's Fraud Prevention Center.

The Twitter chat is part of NCUA's activities during Financial Literacy Month. Consumers can visit NCUA's and the agency's financial literacy site, Pocket Cents, at any time to get more information about saving, borrowing and managing credit.

Under the Federal Credit Union Act, promoting financial literacy is a core credit union mission. While credit unions serve the needs of their members and promote financial literacy within the communities they serve, NCUA works to reinforce credit union efforts, raise consumer awareness and increase access to credit union services. NCUA also participates in national financial literacy initiatives, including the Financial Literacy and Education Commission, an interagency group created by Congress to improve the nation's financial literacy and education.
