Any time we can talk about saving anything, that's usually a good thing. In this instance we are talking with NCUA's Director of the Office of Consumer Protection Gail Laster about American Saves and Military Saves Week -- which is next week (Feb. 24 - Mar. 1). Gail tells us the connection between this week-long event and NCUA -- along with NCUA's participation in promoting these initiatives.
We also talk about the status of NCUA's MyCreditUnion.gov website, as well as PocketCents.com -- a site dedicated to helping Youth, Tweens and Teens, Young Adults, Parents and Educators, Families, Seniors, and Service members learn how to make smarter financial decisions for a stronger, brighter future.
That's just scratching the surface of this talk with Gail. We also touched on fair lending examination for 2014, Dodd-Frank mortgage and remittance rules, and HMDA reporting requirements. Certainly a lot to cover in this episode. So sit back and enjoy -- and don't forget to help celebrate America Saves and Military Saves Week!
