Final Week

Nov 29. 17

It's the last week of November already which also means the last week of Financial Literacy Month. Hopefully you have taken advantage of the tips and links through out the weeks to help improve your household's finances! The last week is all about knowing your rights and responsibilities. Here are a few tips and information everyone should know!

The more you know and understand your financial rights and responsibilities, the easier it is to avoid costly surprises and to reach your financial goals.

We all have responsibility to inform ourselves of rates, terms and penalties associated with financial services and products. You can find this information on this website  HERE or in any of your local branches!

When interest rates change, it may be tempting to break your existing mortgage and renegotiate a new one at a lower interest rate. Before you do that, read your mortgage contract and make sure you know all of the penalties and fees involved in breaking your current mortgage.

When you withdraw money with your credit card, you are charged interest starting that day. You don’t benefit from an interest-free period on these transactions. That means that even if you pay your credit card balance in full, on time, you may be charged close to a month’s interest on your cash advance. Your credit card agreement discloses how credit card interest is calculated. Get to know it to avoid costly surprises.

This brings us to the end! If you ever have any questions about your accounts or finances please call or visit a branch to talk to one of our Member Service Representatives!
