PCUA meets with officials about loans for the disabled
HARRISBURG, Pa. (4/27/12)--The Pennsylvania Credit Union Association (PCUA) met with state officials April 20 to discuss how credit unions can help get the word out about the availability of assistive technology loans for people with disabilities.

Jim McCormack, PCUA president/CEO, and staff members Rick Wargo and Mike Wishnow, hosted the Pennsylvania Secretary of Banking Glenn Moyer, and officials from the Department of Labor & Industry and the Pennsylvania Assistive Technology Foundation (Life is a Highway April 23).

Participating in the meeting were: Jennifer Peterson, Esq., special assistant to Labor & Industry Secretary Julia Hearthway; James Kreider, executive assistant to Stephen Suroviec, executive director of Labor & Industry's Office of Vocational Rehabilitation; Susan Tachau, executive director, Pennsylvania Assistive Technology Foundation (PATF); and Tracy Beck, operations director, PATF.

The group discussed specific financial education needs of people with disabilities, as well as a role credit unions can play in helping disabled members.

"The credit union mission of 'People Helping People' fits very nicely with PATF's goal to help disabled Pennsylvanians live independently," said Jim McCormack. "Friday's meeting was a good first step in exploring how our two organizations can work together for the betterment of Pennsylvania consumers."
