WEST JORDAN, UT--(Marketwired - Apr 10, 2013) - As part of its longstanding commitment to financial literacy, Mountain America Credit Union has created an online Learning Center that contains tools and information to help members and others make informed financial decisions leading to the fulfillment of their financial goals.
The Learning Center -- www.macu.com/learningcenter -- contains links to articles, videos, budgeting tools, personal finance calculators, car-buying tools, ID protection information and frequently asked questions. It also connects to the credit union's Mountain Money financial blog and the "8 Pillars of Financial Greatness" program. Mountain America and "8 Pillars" author and financial expert Brian Nelson Ford are holding a free financial literacy seminar April 17 in West Jordan, Utah. The public is invited.
"April is National Financial Literacy Month, and what better way to celebrate than to hold free financial literacy seminars and provide free online financial information to help members better manage their money, live a balanced life and achieve their financial dreams," said Sharon Cook, senior vice president of marketing and PR for Mountain America. "Sometimes the difference between living on the edge and enjoying financial security is a little bit of information, and we will continue to do our best to make this valuable information as easily and widely available as possible."
Mountain America Credit Union has more than $3 billion in assets and serves more than 400,000 members wherever they are through online and mobile banking, Mountain America branches in five states, and more than 30,000 ATMs and 5,000 shared-branching locations nationwide. With Utah credit union roots dating back to the 1930s, Mountain America has become a tradition for many members, offering a variety of financial products and services for consumers and businesses, including savings accounts, auto loans, checking accounts, mortgage loans, business checking, SBA loans and retirement options.
