REAL Solutions
REAL Solutions

The National Credit Union Foundation’s REAL Solutions® program works with credit unions and state credit union leagues to develop products, programs and partnerships which result in affordable products and services for members and potential members, while at the same time growing the credit union and enhancing the bottom line. The Cornerstone Credit Union League REAL Solutions program is supported by a generous grant provided by the Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation.

REAL Solutions builds member and consumer financial capability by offering tools such as an online resource center, product development, Credit Union Financial Counseling Certification Program (FiCEP – brought to CUs by the Foundation and CUNA), experiential learning programs (reality fairs, retirement fairs, and life simulations), planning/coaching, and speaking/training.

REAL Solutions is:

  • A collaboration between the Foundation, credit union leagues, and credit unions across the country to build an effective product menu that is mutually beneficial to members and the institutions.
  • Transformational programs that help credit unions serve members of modest means and put them on the track to financial freedom.
  • Strategic and impactful programs that provide credit union leaders with real lessons in empathy and compassion.  Walking in another’s shoes fosters understanding and builds relationships between credit union staff and members.
  • A catalyst for movement change – we introduce an idea or new product opportunity through pilots and presentations for movement use.

Elder Financial Abuse Awareness

Older consumers can be attractive targets for scams and financial exploitation because they often have higher household wealth in the form of retirement savings, accumulated home equity, or other assets. Some of those consumers are credit union members with some diminished capacity for protecting themselves. REAL Solutions has developed a new initiative to promote awareness of elder financial abuse and exploitation in the financial services industry.
