FTC Military Lending Workshop Video Now Available

On July 19, AFSA EVP Bill Himpler spoke at the 2017 Military Consumer Financial Workshop: Protecting Those Who Protect Our Nation, hosted by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) on July 19 in San Antonio, Texas. The workshop was a discussion of financial issues and scams that can affect military consumers, including active duty servicemembers in all branches and all veterans.

Himpler participated in two panels. The first, Military Consumers’ Experience in Other Lending, focused on servicemember’s knowledge and encounters with a number of different loan products. The second panel was Legal Rights and Remedies for Military Consumers.

Video of the two panels, as well as the other sessions held at the workshop, are now available on the FTC’s website.
