State's Largest Credit Union to Support Financial Education Awareness Week
Financial knowledge and capability is a key factor in the economic success of New Mexicans, both now and for generations to come. For the third straight year, New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez and Nusenda Credit Union are supporting "New Mexico Money Management Week" from Aug. 21 — 25, 2017. The week is focused on educating New Mexicans on financial matters, as well as providing them with resources for financial well-being so they can create stable, secure futures for themselves and their families.
"Understanding financial matters and making informed money decisions is pivotal to sustaining and growing the communities where we live, work, and play," said Shana Runck, Nusenda's assistant vice president of community relations and financial capability. "With our education programs and community outreach efforts, we strive to help we strive to help our fellow New Mexicans build a strong financial foundation for their families, which in turn improves the economics of our state."
Nusenda Credit Union also plays a significant role in providing financial education tools to community partners, such as APS's Parent University, UNM's "Powering Success" micro-assistance program, and the City of Albuquerque's "Running Start for Careers" program. It also has a series of financial workshops both in-person and online, financial health analytics tools, financial counseling services and money management tools — all for free.
Nusenda members can take advantage of services that were created to efficiently manage their financial activity. Along with checking, savings, money market, share certificates, and holiday/vacation club accounts, members can receive free, personalized credit management reviews and debt consolidation counseling. Additionally, Nusenda offers self-service tools like online budgeting programs, account alerts, account and person-to-person transfers, digital wallets, and online bill payment service.
