New Year’s Resolution: See Your Credit Union

A Fresh Start With Mid Oregon

We all want a fresh start in 2016, and many of us make resolutions about changes we want to make. If any of yours involve money, make an appointment next week to see Mid Oregon Credit Union.

If you haven’t yet joined a CU, do so now. You will start the year right, and enjoy the benefits of not-for-profit, member-owned community banking for a lifetime.

Significant Financial Benefit

The Credit Union National Association (CUNA) estimates that Oregon credit unions provided over $115 million in direct benefits to the state’s over 1.5 million members during the 12 months ending September 2015. Read the report.

These benefits are equivalent to $74 per member or $141 per member household.

As an example, financing a $25,000 new automobile for 60 months at an Oregon credit union will save members an averge of $151 per year in interest expense compared to what they would pay at a banking institution in the state.

Already a Member?

If you are already a Mid Oregon member, now is the time to sit across a table with someone who can turn your financial resolutions into actionable plans.

Remember, plans become more real when you share them with someone else. A professional at your CU will look over your spending and saving records from 2015, and help you find ways to make improvements.

You know you need a savings plan, with a set target for saving each month. Put that plan together now, before the craziness of life takes over — and suddenly it’s summertime.

A Good Plan

There’s no real magic to building financial security, and eventually, wealth. All it takes is a bit of discipline, and a good plan well followed. Over time, you’ll see the magic of compounding interest at work. Your money will literally be working for you.

So, make that appointment to see your credit union this week, before 2016 starts getting old. Contact us at (541) 382-1795, email to beheard@midoregon.com or visit one of our 6 Central Oregon offices.
