Thrifty Thinking: College, Identity, and Credit Score Twitter Chat

ABA will celebrate National Get Smart About Credit Day on Thursday, Oct. 17 from 3-5pm ET with a  #GetSmartChat on Twitter about the program’s three topics of focus: Paying for College, Protecting Your Identity, and Knowing Your Credit Score. An opportunity for teens and parents across the country to ask top subject matter experts their most important questions.
The @ABABankingNews Twitter account will moderate the discussion as three experts will each tackle the nation’s questions:
·         Paying for College: U.S. Dept. of Education’s Financial Aid Office at @FAFSA
·         Knowing Your Credit Score: VantageScore at @VantageScore
·         Protecting Your Identity: Identity Theft Resource Center at @ITRC
Now in its 11th year, the Get Smart About Credit program is a national campaign of volunteer bankers who help teens and young adults learn the “how to’s” of credit. As part of its commitment to the Clinton Global Initiative, ABA added a component this year to help bankers engage students on financing their higher education. The program’s other two elements are how to use credit wisely, and protecting your identity.
The American Bankers Association represents banks of all sizes and charters and is the voice for the nation’s $14 trillion banking industry and its two million employees.  Learn more at
