Minnesota CUs Provide Financial Counseling, Education To Members
ST. PAUL, Minn. (11/7/13)--Credit unions in Minnesota formed a statewide partnership with a charity's financial counseling arm to offer additional financial advice and education.
 
The Minnesota Credit Union Network announced the deal with Lutheran Social Service on Tuesday, hailing its potential benefit to the state's credit union members.
