“Credit unions are great for free checking and loans, of course, but many people don’t realize that they’re also an excellent resource for financial literacy,” says Laura Edgar, NerdWallet’s credit union specialist. “We really liked BrightStar University because it has a large collection of articles, games and videos for all age groups. It’s also very easy to access. All you have to do is go online.”
