March is National Credit Education Month


Every day, credit unions are focused on improving their members’ financial health in a number of ways, including guiding them on how to build their credit.

To recognize and encourage this important work, the Northwest Credit Union Association will soon feature helpful content credit unions may share with their members in March during National Credit Education Month. The content, to be added to the Marketing Resource Center, will include social media posts, tips and tricks for improving credit scores, and insight from financial experts. Look for updates in the coming days.

Credit unions are member-owned, not-for-profit cooperatives, and now is the perfect time to remind members of all the ways credit unions help them improve their credit scores year-round.

According to data collected through the Community Impact Reporting Tool, credit unions provided financial education to nearly 130,000 members in Idaho, Oregon, and Washington through various programs and courses. They also helped members open millions of savings accounts and save a collective $6.4 billion for a rainy day.

Bottom line — credit unions care about helping their members develop good spending habits, maintain healthy savings accounts, and establish good credit — it’s the Credit Union Difference!

The Marketing Resource Center houses content and data that’s useful to credit unions all year long. Check it out today!
