MADISON, Wis. – Copies of the book “Money Rules: The Simple Path to Lifelong Security” by bestselling personal finance author Jean Chatzky are available again from the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF). Last year, over 100,000 copies of the book were distributed to credit union members and employees through this special initiative from NCUF.

“Money Rules” contains a set of smart, actionable, engaging rules that, if followed, will allow readers to enjoy a lifetime of financial security and eliminate stress about money.

NCUF, which had discontinued distribution of "Money Rules" earlier this year, has made more of the books available due to growing demand from credit union organizations. Copies are offered at a substantially reduced rate via donation to NCUF.

“There are credit unions clamoring for more copies of these useful handbooks to distribute (and) make a positive impact in their communities,” said NCUF Director of Communications Christopher Morris. “(W)e’ve seen credit unions and leagues give ‘Money Rules’ to attendees at financial education events, distribute it to staff members, and donate them to area schools. We’re pleased to make the books available again to help credit unions improve people’s financial lives.”

Other credit unions have reported distributing the “Money Rules” books at community events, offering it to new members as part of their on-boarding programs, and giving copies as thank you gifts to members and volunteers.

When an organization requests 1,000 or more copies of the book, the donor organization’s name will be included on a sticker on the front cover. Each book already comes with “Compliments of: NCUF” printed on the cover. All of the books from NCUF are sent to credit union organizations on a non-returnable basis and for promotional purposes only, not for resale.
