As 2013 comes to an end, we all take time to reflect and contemplate our goals for the year ahead. One of the most popular New Year’s Resolutions is to save money. As your life-long partner, University Federal Credit Union (UFCU) is here to help.

“Our mission is to provide for the well-being of our members,” said Jill Kaiser, UFCU Regional Manager. “Whether we are helping you stick to your resolution or achieve a long-term goal, your well-being is what drives our decision-making.”

Track Your Spending & Set Goals

Take control of your finances with UFCU.

Begin with a clear understanding of how you spend your money. Using a personal financial management tool will help you track and categorize your expenses. 

“UFCU Money Manager is the perfect tool for budgeting and tracking your money saving resolution,” said Kaiser. “You can combine data from multiple financial institutions, create spending budgets and savings goals and receive alerts when approaching targets.” 

Lower Your Auto Loan Rate

UFCU is ready to help you save money on your auto loan.

“In the last 13 years, over 30,000 members refinanced auto loans with UFCU, and we saved them over $30 million in interest they would have paid with another lender,” said Kaiser. 

Refinance your auto loan from another lender with UFCU in January 2014, and you can defer your first payment up to 60 days and $50 will be deposited to your UFCU savings account once your loan is funded. 

“For more information about a UFCU auto loan, go to wheels101.com or come into our branch and visit with one of our financial experts,” said Kaiser.

Eliminate Checking Fees

When UFCU says free, they really mean it.

“UFCU Free Checking lets you manage your day-to-day finances with no fees, no minimum balance requirements and no worries,” said Kaiser. 

Also enjoy UFCU’s free account features and benefits, including 24/7 account access with Online Banking, Mobile Banking, Bill Pay and an Instant Issue VISA® Debit/Check Card. “You can walk in, open a checking account and walk out that day with an active debit card,” said Kaiser.

Visit UFCU

UFCU invites you to visit with one of their friendly and professional Galveston Financial Center staff members at 428 Postoffice Street. They are available to help you meet all of your financial goals.

“We wish everyone a Happy New Year and hope you choose to make UFCU your financial partner for life,” said Kaiser.
