Refinance to Get a Better Rate!



You don’t have to go out and buy a new or used car to take advantage of our low rates. If you already financed a vehicle through another financial institution, you can refinance that loan with us. Most likely, our rates are better, and we can give you a lower monthly payment without extending your loan’s original term.

Applying is simple. You can apply for a vehicle loan in person at our offi ce or through our website.

Improve Your Credit Score

Follow these three easy steps, and you’ll boost your credit score in no time!

Pay Bills On Time
Late payments pull down your credit score, plus paying all those late fees can add up. Save money and help pull up your credit score all at the same time.

Pay the Maxed-Out Cards First
Points are deducted if you use more than 50% of your cardís limit. Pay your maxed-out credit cards, and your credit score will improve.

Donít Cancel Any Credit Cards
Most of your credit score is based on how much credit you have but arenít using. When you cancel a card, it will decrease the amount of your available credit.

If you are drowning in credit card or any kind of debt, give the Credit Union a call. We are your financial partner and want to help members keep their feet on the ground.




Continuing Series on Identity Theft: Protecting Your Credit

Your credit report follows you wherever you go, and locking away your personal and fi nancial information from identity thieves is essential. Good credit can be the difference between opportunity and denial, whether you’re applying for an Auto Loan, First Mortgage, or Student Loan.

Here are a few tips to ensure that your fi nances are secure and sensitive information is kept safe.

  • Shred any paperwork containing personal information. This includes ďjunkĒ mail offering credit card pre-approval.
  • Keep secure documents containing personal data in a locked fi le drawer, cabinet or box.
  • Limit the number of credit cards you use and carry.
  • Memorize your Social Security number and passwords to avoid having them recorded in your wallet or purse.
  • Order a copy of your credit report from each of the three major credit bureaus on a yearly basis.

For more tips on how to protect your credit, contact the Credit Union today. Our team of fi nancial experts is ready to provide you with advice and assistance.
