We now have a FUN & FREE financial education program for ages 12 to 25 that teaches the fundamentals of banking and how to properly manage money. Here's how it works: (1) Ask any credit union employee for a compact disk of the program; (2) Take the disk home and complete it in the comfort of your own home; (3) Print your certificate of completion and return it, along with the disk, to the credit union, and receive a $10 CREDIT TO YOUR SAVINGS ACCOUNT! It's that easy!

The credit union mission has always been to ensure secure financial choices at lower costs for their members. That’s why credit unions offer financial products that provide better returns on savings, reduced rates on loans and lower or no fees on services. Unfortunately, the big banks and some in Congress want to raise taxes and impose new fees on 96 million credit union members who represent 40% of all Americans, yet represent only 6% of the assets in financial institutions. And, they want to do this despite the fact that credit unions are not-for-profit and meeting their core mission every day.
Congress needs to hear from our members, NOW!
