Plan out your financial future.
New Year, New Finances
If time has taught us anything, it's that we need to be prepared for financial ups and downs. As we get ready to move into the new year, take time to put a financial plan in place so you are better prepared for the future.
In case of emergency
If you don't have an emergency fund, it’s a great time to get one started. Set a goal to put away $500. This amount will typically cover you if your car breaks down or your dental coverage doesn't pay for that broken tooth. And you can build on it later. Sock away $20 each bi-weekly paycheck and you'll hit your goal within a year. If you use direct deposit or automatic transfer into savings, you'll be less tempted to spend rather than save.
Save now, shop later
Patience is a virtue, especially when it comes to buying big-ticket items. Is a big-screen TV on your wish list? Dedicate yourself to cutting back on other extravagances (dining out, new clothes, deluxe cable, etc.) and put that money aside.
Make long-term plans
It might be time for you to consider putting money into a Certificate. We offer competitive savings rates that won’t change over the duration of your Certificate and have terms ranging from 6 months to 5 years. And, your funds are insured up to $250,000.
