League Honors Credit Unions for Exceptional Service
The League of Southeastern Credit Unions and Affiliates (LSCU) announced
the recipients of the 2014 LSCU Awards. They were presented on Friday, June
13, during the Southeast Credit Union Conference and Expo (SCUCE) in
Orlando. Baptist Health South Florida FCU was awarded the Credit Union
of the Year in the up to $100 million in assets category.
Baptist Health South Florida FCU is a Bauer 5-Star credit union based upon
its outstanding financial data. The Credit Union doubled its loan growth in
2013 and added $3.2 million in new assets. Besides its regular array of financial
products, the credit union introduced a new credit card program, a citizenship
loan for future citizens, and offers a “no credit check loan” to offset payday
lenders. Baptist Health South Florida FCU front line staff is accredited as
Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) counselors which help
to identify member needs and get them on a path to a stronger financial future.

“To be honored as a credit union of the year is very gratifying,” said Baptist Health
South Florida FCU President/CEO Michael Raley. “This award symbolizes what our credit union staff does every day – work to
better the lives of our members.”
Summer Loan Special!
It’s that time of the year. Go on a summer vacation.
Send kids to summer camp or summer school. Or,
prepare for the hurricane season. Whatever your need
is, a Summer Loan can help with the expenses of the
season.
7.99%
APR*
With a Credit Union Summer Loan, you can borrow up to
$2,500 at an annual percentage rate (APR) of 7.99%. The
term of the loan is 12 months. With bi-weekly payroll deductions, the payment
is affordable and convenient. You don’t have to worry about making a payment
late.
Apply now to get your Summer Loan. Apply online, visit a branch or ask the
roving representative for assistance. Don’t delay. This special rate (7.99% APR)
is only effective from June 1st to August 31st, 2014.
*You must meet Credit Union lending guidelines. Rates are subject to change.
Shrink Your Auto Loan Payment
Did you finance your car or truck somewhere besides the Credit Union?
If you answered yes, your monthly payments are probably higher than
they should be. It’s time to shrink that payment and put more money in
your wallet.
The Credit Union is offering a rate reduction of 1%* off your
current rate! It could even be more if you qualify. You save even more
by making bi-weekly payments.
Talk to a member service representative today. You can save money by
refinancing your auto or truck bank loan. Refinancing is not difficult
and the member service representative from the Credit Union will help
you through the necessary paperwork. Stop by a branch soon or call.
It’s time to shrink your auto loan payment and put the savings to
good use.
*You must meet Credit Union lending guidelines. The loan cannot be an existing Credit
Union loan and the new rate cannot go below 3.99% Annual Percentage Rate. Rates are subject to change.
Lowest Rates In Years For Home Equity Loans
That’s right. The Credit Union has home equity loans as low as
3.99% annual percentage rate for up to a five year term*. As home
values improve, more members may qualify for a low rate home
equity loan. To qualify for a home equity loan, contact Fembi
Mortgage, the Credit Union’s mortgage processor, at 786-520-2205.
Members with a high rate first mortgage, who have a short time left
on the loan, may want to consider paying off the first mortgage and
get a home equity loan at a lower rate. You may be able to lower your
monthly payment and still keep the tax advantage of a mortgage
loan.
If you are thinking about getting a home equity loan for any reason,
now is the time to act. The 3.99% annual percentage rate went into
effect April 15th, 2013. When loan rates start to climb, this low rate
will go away. So, act now to get qualified for your low rate home
equity loan. Call Fembi Mortgage at 786-520-2205.
The Credit Union has other home equity rates and terms to meet member needs.
*You must meet Credit Union lending guidelines.

save the Credit Union the cost of mailing.

Prepaid Visa Card
Give the card as a gift. Use it to go shopping. Or, carry it with you when traveling instead
of cash or checks. You can select any amount between $10 and $1,000. If you need more
money on hand, simply purchase another card(s). The cost per card is only $3.00.
The cards are nice looking and they come with a convenient holder. They can be used at
millions of places around the world that accept Visa. Give the card as gift, or take it on a trip. It
looks nice and it’s safer than cash. Stop at a branch and pick up your prepaid Visa card today.
Night Deposit Boxes
The Credit Union has “night deposit boxes” in the door of the Fast Track Booth at Baptist Hospital and in the door of the
Homestead Hospital branch. Members can drop off deposits, loan applications, change forms and other documents at their
convenience. The “night deposit boxes” are secure locked boxes.
When the Fast Track and the Branch opens, appropriate action will be taken depending on what is in the “night deposit
box”. The “boxes” should be very helpful for members who can’t get to the branch during regular hours, especially
employees working late evenings, night shifts or weekends.
The Credit Union plans to add “night deposit boxes” in South Miami and West Kendall in the near future.
