American Consumer Council Applauds Credit Unions for Helping Federal Employees

The American Consumer Council (ACC) is giving kudos to credit unions across the nation for their support of furloughed federal employees during the government shutdown.

ACC specifically recognized credit unions such as Fort Knox Federal Credit Union for offering financial assistance to local military, Department of Defense employees and contractors directly affected by the federal government shutdown. Fort Knox FCU is offering to cover their lost pay through an interest free loan. 

ACC's president Thomas Hinton stated, "At a time when so many consumers are negatively affected by the irresponsible actions of the Congress, it's good to know that credit unions are stepping up to help their members through tough times and save the day!"
