This is Derek Miller, Speaking on Business. April is Financial Literacy Month and it is designed to raise public awareness of the importance of financial literacy and maintaining smart money management habits. Mountain America Credit Union Senior Vice President Sharlene Wells joins us to share more about the services they provide.


For almost 90 years, Mountain America Credit Union has served its members in Utah and surrounding states by offering low rates on quality financial products and services. But guiding our members forward means much more to us than that.

A recent survey found 83 percent of U.S. parents wish they had learned more about personal finance growing up, and the same number were looking for resources to teach their own children about money.

Mountain America goes into our communities to deliver trustworthy financial education to schools, businesses, non-profits and community groups. Our employees share expertise about credit scores, avoiding scams, how couples can work together toward their goals, and how to reduce debt to achieve your financial dreams.

Lastly, our team can help people determine whether a debt consolidation makes sense for their situation when our free Debt Rescue analysis shows them exactly how much they could save. With this focus, we are always putting our members first.
