The best things in life are free…like our FREE checking, for instance!

If the best things in life are free, how do you pay for everything else? Well, it helps to have a checking account. But checking accounts can cost a lot of money, right?

Not at CSFECU! Effective immediately, our old monthly fee has been eliminated and CSFECU Checking is now completely FREE!

“Free,” you say, “but what can it do?”

Well, pretty much everything you need or want from a checking account…free or otherwise.

 

Maximize your tax refund

April is the month when Americans get one of two bits of news. We write a check to pay our taxes, or we get a check written to us in the form of a tax refund. If you’re one of the nearly 80% of Americans who receive a refund on your federal income taxes, congratulations! Now, what to do with the unexpected windfall?

Start or increase your emergency fund

It’s not sexy, it’s not glamorous, but an emergency fund is essential. The days of working 40 years for the same company are behind us, so an emergency fund is a vital tool to manage a job loss or to cover an unexpected medical or home expense.

Pay off high-interest debt

Maybe you didn’t have an emergency fund when you needed it…and you had to finance day-to-day living on high-interest loans or credit cards. Use your tax refund to pay down or pay off that debt. Dollars used today to pay down high-interest debt can save you thousands of dollars in the future.

Start or increase your retirement fund

Every day, you are inching closer to retirement. So, what’s your plan? If the answer is “Social Security,” or, “Not sure,” well, put your refund to work on a retirement fund. At CSFECU, Roth or Traditional IRA Certificates can be opened with as little as $100.

Save for something

Seeing a pattern here? Deferred gratification. Put some of your tax refund away for that new car, new computer, self-improvement classes…

Do something for yourself

We aren’t heartless! Yes, if all the basics are covered, take some of your refund and do something for yourself, for today.

Happy tax day!

Refer a friend to CSFECU and you both will smile!

Electronic services pave the way in 2017

Online Banking

Manage your accounts from anywhere in the world via the internet. You can check balances, transfer funds within your own accounts or to another member, pay bills, make consumer loan payments, view previous statements, organize and view account history, and much more. Learn more.

Online Bill Pay

Control: Schedule single or recurring payments in just a few steps, and you’ll never worry about missing a bill or late fees.

And we’ll all win, by having someone like your friend or family joining our credit union. Working together to make us all better.
