Money Rules book by Chatzky available from NCUF
MADISON, Wis. (11/28/12)--Copies of the new book "Money Rules: The Simple Path to Lifelong Security" by personal finance author Jean Chatzky are available from the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF).

"Money Rules" contains a set of rules that will help readers to work toward financial security and eliminate their stress about money, said NCUF.

Chatzky will be one of the keynote speakers at The Credit Union National Association's upcoming 2013 Governmental Affairs Conference, Feb. 24-28.

Through the special initiative sponsored by NCUF, credit union organizations can order the book for a reduced rate to distribute to:

  • Staff;
  • Members;
  • Attendees of community events, particularly financial education-related events; and
  • Teachers/libraries/resource centers in each school of the districts in which they serve.
"'Money Rules' is a simple yet powerful money management book," said Bucky Sebastian, NCUF executive director. "People of almost any age can pick it up, read from any page and learn something profound from Jean Chatzky's simple but important rules. It's a great handbook to help consumers achieve financial freedom and we hope it spreads throughout the credit union movement."

"In these trying economic times it is more important than ever to learn all we can about our personal finances," Chatzky said.

Orders of 1,000 or more will also include the donor organization's name on a sticker on the front cover. Each book already comes with "Compliments of: NCUF" printed on the cover. Books can be ordered on a non-returnable basis, for promotional purposes only and not for resale.

An award-winning journalist and best-selling author, Chatzky is the financial editor for NBC's Today, the host of Money Matters with Jean Chatzky on RLTV, and director of education for SavvyMoney. Among other achievements, Chatzky was honored by the Consumer Federation of America with the Betty Furness Consumer Media Service Award for nearly two decades of pioneering personal finance education.
