Learn About Credit Unions. Free Workshops At A Nearby City

While there hasn't been much mentioned lately in the mainstream news media, consumers are still moving their money out of the big banks to local community banks and credit unions. If you want to learn more about what a credit union is and its benefits, the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) is hosting free workshops in several citys.

The NCUA is the independent federal agency that regulates and supervises federally chartered credit unions. The NCUA operates the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF), which insures deposits at federal credit unions and most state-chartered credit unions. Deposits are insured up to $250,000 per account.
