Spanish Language Consumer Sites Unveiled By NCUA
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (10/11/13)--Updated Spanish versions of the National Credit Union Administration's consumer website MyCreditUnion.gov and financial literacy microsite Pocket Cents were unveiled on Thursday in observance of National Hispanic Heritage Month.

"During the last two decades, the number of Spanish speakers in America has more than doubled. Today, more than 36 million Americans speak Spanish at home," NCUA Board Chair Debbie Matz said in an agency release. "It is critical that these Spanish speakers have access to reliable resources for financial information," she added.

The agency's Pocket Cents and MyCreditUnion.gov sites cover credit union basics and provide financial tips for consumers of all ages, including details on the cost of education and homeownership, and information to help retirement planning, debt management, online financial security and emergency planning. The NCUA has recently added new content that could help older consumers avoid scams and protect their finances. "I encourage everyone to take full advantage of all the tools we have made available to them free of charge," Matz wrote.
