first-hand they could
help him reach his
financial goals.

1.
Have a “rainy day”
fund. Most financial
advisors will tell you to
have an emergency
(rainy day) fund of between three
to six months of salary.
2.
Have a true-to-life
budget. Keep a record
of every amount you
spend over a period
of several weeks. Doing this will
let you know where your money
actually goes. This will help you
decide what expenses can be
cut and how much can be
saved by cutting them.
3.
Set long-term goals.
Do you know where
you want to be financially, a year from
n o w , five years from now, or
twenty years from now? Write
priorities down, periodically
review them, and decide
what you have to do to meet
them.
4.
Shop for the best interest rates. Interest
adds up quickly whether
you are investing in share
certificates or taking out a new
car loan.
5.
Pay yourself first. Don't
pay everyone else first.
If possible, save at least
ten percent of everything
you earn. When doing a budget,
figure the “pay yourself first” into
your budget.

Thanking
our VETERANS
November 11th is VEtErANS DAy
and we, at the credit union, would
like to take this opportunity to thank
our veterans: the men and women
who have served their country, allowing us to have the freedoms we
enjoy today. Whether they served
on active duty or reserve, during
peacetime or a time of conflict,
they served their county with honor.
We also want to thank the family
members and thousands of volunteers who have stood by and supported our veterans. Thanks all —
military members and their families,
present and past.

check off that
never-ending gift

holiday time help ease the worry
and bring on the merry? If you answered “yes” to these questions
then a HCECU Holiday Loan may
be your solution! A convenient,
money-saving holiday loan is an
affordable way to obtain funds for
those extra holiday expenses. Low
rates, flexible terms and payment
options will help you regain control of your holiday spending.

Your Dollar with a Low-Rate Credit Card
Credit unions do all they can to
help members stick to their budgets and stretch their earnings and
that includes offering an affordable credit card.
In our current economy, the cost
of living has increased significantly, even surpassing the average monthly income. Not only
does this make saving difficult but
also makes the use of credit cards
among most consumers something of a necessity. In fact, one
would be hard pressed to find an
American without at least a single
credit card in his or her wallet. For
credit union members, it would be
financially wise to make a CU
credit card their primary choice.
