FTC offers free fin. lit. resources
WASHINGTON (4/16/14)--Credit unions looking for new materials to enhance their focus on consumer financial literacy--now during Financial Literacy Month and beyond--can check out the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) website.

The FTC, in part charged with preventing business practices that are anticompetitive or deceptive or unfair to consumers, has information for everybody--students, young adults, parents, servicemembers on active duty, veterans or grandparents. It covers such financial topics as saving and shopping, credit and debt, buying a home or car, and looking for a job or paying for school.

In Tuesday's release, the FTC noted that all its materials are in the public domain. They can be posted, reprinted, or adapted to educate people about their consumer rights.
