The National Credit Union Administration and the Federal Trade Commission will be providing information to empower servicemembers, veterans and their families to be informed consumers in an upcoming #NCUAChat. The live chat is scheduled for Wednesday, July 27, beginning at 11 a.m. Eastern. Kenneth Worthey, a Financial Literacy and Outreach Analyst with NCUA’s Office of Consumer Protection, and FTC staff will discuss how servicemembers can protect themselves and their families from payday, auto and student loan predatory lending.

During the chat, NCUA and FTC will also share resources from their consumer sites, MyCreditUnion.gov​ and Just for You: Military Families.

Credit unions and consumers are encouraged to follow @MyCUgov on Twitter and contribute to the conversation using the #NCUAChat hashtag. Participants may submit questions in advance to socialmedia@ncua.gov.
