According to the latest economic news, Americans are getting poorer. In fact, recent reports indicate that two-thirds of Americans live paycheck to paycheck. Moreover, it is not only those who live close to the poverty line who are in difficulty. Fortune.com referenced a new report by LendingClub that found more than a third of paycheck-to-paycheck consumers in the United States earn at least $250,000. Certainly, inflation affects how Americans of all income levels manage their budgets.

The reality is that many North Dakota and South Dakota consumers, including credit union members, are struggling today. Who can they turn to when their financial situation runs into trouble? Should they keep swimming and hope for the best? Or should they seek advice on how to stay afloat – and perhaps even safely reach the shores of financial well-being?

Nearly two years ago, the National Credit Union Foundation began leading credit unions across the country toward a mission it dubbed “Financial well-being for all. What does that mean? Financial wellness for all is about motivating and helping people make smart financial decisions. Financial well-being is central to the mission of credit unions within their communities and deeply embedded in their structure; they want to help members achieve their financial dreams.

Credit unions also have a long history of helping consumers through difficult times. Since their founding days in the United States in the early 1900s, credit unions have flourished under the motto “Not for profit, not for charity, but for service.” During the recent pandemic, credit unions have done so much to help consumers and small businesses that they have become known as “financial first responders” by many in the trades.

What exactly can a local credit union offer to help its members feel financially secure about their future? Let’s start with the average savings a family realizes just by being a member. According to the most recent 2021 Member Benefits Annual Report released by the Credit Union National Association, credit unions provided $12,557,606,745 in direct financial benefits to 127,848,853 members nationwide in the 12 months ending in December 2021. These benefits are equivalent to $98 per member or $206 per member household. In the Dakotas, these savings are even greater: North Dakota credit union members save an average of $118 per year, or $249 per household; South Dakota members save $144 per year, or $302 per household.

While that’s a good start, credit unions offer so much more. Many have Certified Credit Union Financial Advisors (CCUFC) on staff and offer advice at no cost to members. These trained individuals are professionally prepared to help members who are experiencing financial difficulties. The Dakota Credit Union Foundation recently authorized a grant expense for local credit unions seeking to add a financial education component or CCUFC to their staff.

Additionally, many credit unions will offer “Skip-A-Payment” programs for a nominal fee (often the fee is donated to charity) so that members can meet unexpected expenses and not hurt their credit score with missed payments. Other options for members in good standing can include loan modifications, budget assistance, not to mention lower interest rates on loans and lower fees on many services.

More importantly, whether a consumer is working with a local credit union, a small community bank, or even a large financial institution, it’s essential to be proactive with your financial situation. If you are swimming against a strong financial current and need assistance, contact your financial service provider(s) as soon as possible to discuss your particular situation. They can offer financial assistance “safety jacket,” but at the very least, just like a lighthouse guides the ship, they should be able to steer you to safer waters.

RALEIGH, NC, June 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — In April, the State Employees’ Credit Union (SECU) launched an exciting new Summer Camp Awards program to give its FAT CAT® and Zard® members a chance to have a fun summer experience at the Caisse populaire. During the campaign, youth members had the opportunity to apply for a $500 scholarship to help cover the costs of their camp expenses for the 2022 summer season!

Entrants entered the competition by sharing their dream summer camp experience in one of two ways: through an original drawing or a written essay. Over 200 entries were submitted statewide and up to one FAT CAT winner and one Zard winner per branch were chosen by random draw from all eligible entries.

Monecia Thomas’ daughter received a Summer Camp Award and she was thrilled to hear the news. Ms Thomas said: ‘Thank you for this summer camp award – it is truly an honor for Kennedy. She was so excited to submit her essay and she would like to thank her teachers at Triad Baptist for preparing her to write the essay and her Girl Scout troop for giving her the confidence to attend a week-long camp . We appreciate the State Employees’ Credit Union and hope you will continue to provide this award to other deserving students.

“Summer camps can be life changing. Whether they focus on the arts, sports, science or space, camp experiences can ignite a passion in a child that can carry over into adulthood and into a career,” said Jim. Hayes, CEO of SECU. “Unfortunately, summer camps can also be very expensive, and this program provided SECU with a creative way to reduce the financial burden on families who were looking for exciting summer enrichment opportunities for their children. Congratulations to all the first winners of SECU – we hope they have lots of fun while learning, growing and being inspired along the way!”

Community & Workers of Jamaica Cooperative Credit Union, C&WJCCU, is looking to a digital future and is already transforming some services. At the same time, CEO Joyce West-Johnson pledges not to close any of the 21 branches.

“The only thing that is important to us is that we want to satisfy our members. We do not intend to close any of our branches. Digitization adds to what we already have. It’s not a replacement,” West-Johnson told the financial gleaner after the annual general meeting of the credit union.

C&WJCCU is the first and only credit union to list its deferred shares on the Jamaica Stock Exchange, making the community bank not only accountable to its members, but also to the market.

Credit unions had to issue deferred shares or increase membership shares in order to comply with Bank of Jamaica regulatory requirements.

During the meeting, West-Johnson told members that C&WJCCU had begun its digital transformation by expanding members’ online access to counter physical access limitations that had plagued businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic.

C&WJCCU also introduced its own debit card in conjunction with MasterCard, launched its own app and revamped the company’s website.

The next frontier will be the development of digital products to distribute to members.

“We will soon introduce mobile payments. I can’t say more about that right now, but it will be an area of ​​particular interest,” West-Johnson said.

The 21 branches of the caisse are spread over nine parishes and are supplemented by a mobile unit deployed as needed and in operation two to three times a week.

“If one of our branches feels they want to be a little closer to a different set of customers, then they ask the mobile branch to set up in those locations and they determine which days they want them” , said the CEO.

“He goes to different places in different parishes to support local branches, depending on where he is needed,” she said.

C&WJCCU, in operation since 1961, has just over 136,000 members with assets of $21.28 billion. Its surplus for the fiscal year ending December 2021 was $259 million, down sharply from $418 million in 2020.

For the first quarter ended March 2022, the credit union reported profit of $28 million, up 45% from a year earlier.

West-Johnson, who took over from Carlton Barclay as CEO two and a half months ago on April 1, said the decline in the credit union’s surplus at the end of 2021 was no different from that achieved in the rest of the financial sector.

She added that in response to the slowdown in business, commercial banks, for example, have sought to increase fees, credit card revenue and foreign exchange to shore up their profits.

“Credit unions are not in this space. We decided not to charge our members a fee hike, so fees remained moderate,” West-Johnson said.

Michael Wishnow, vice president of the CrossState Credit Union Association, appeared with Beki Landon, senior vice president of finance at Belco Community Credit Union recently on Pennsylvania Journalists to discuss the growing use of debit and credit cards, interchange and consumer protection.

“We are seeing many trends among members wanting to use debit and credit cards. The pandemic has really grown as fewer people are going to stores, a lot less money is changing hands,” Landon said.

She explains how the use of debit and credit cards continues to grow rapidly as more people use digital wallets and contactless payments. It also discusses the risk of fraud associated with card data.

“Most anti-fraud departments proactively monitor trends. If they see a series of transactions that seem shady, they will let the member know and the member can then check whether they made that transaction or not. If not, they’ll stop it before it gets out of control,” Wishnow said.

Landon adds that while members have “a lot of exposure” on their cards, credit unions have coverage, systems in place, and activity monitored.

“Swap is the fat that makes it all work,” Wishnow said. “Merchants pay a portion of their sales to the system, and that system includes the networks moving the money, as well as the financial institution the store uses. This money circulates and this is what guarantees a transparent transaction for the consumer.

Wishnow adds that interaction is an “extremely small percentage” of the overall transaction and is borne by the merchant.

Landon and Wishnow also discuss members’ financial situation with inflation. The full interview can be found below.

MAPLE GROVE, Minn., June 15, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Twin Cities-based TopLine Federal Credit Union Cooperative has partnered with a group of Wayzata High School students to research cybersecurity and create tools to improve it.

Students are part of Wayzata High School’s Compass Program, an experiential professional career study program for highly motivated juniors and seniors. Courses are designed and taught in collaboration with business leaders from our community and faculty from North Hennepin and Normandale Community Colleges. In the spring, a team of four students interested in technical careers partnered with TopLine and designed a project around cybersecurity, employee security awareness, and specifically ransomware. They created two tools; an in-person presentation with the target audience of senior leaders and a recorded presentation for employee training.

“We are passionate about helping young adults experience life after high school by providing an internship opportunity to work on a project that is directly related to their career area of ​​interest and future educational goals,” said said Vicki Erickson, senior vice president of marketing and communications at Federal Credit Union TopLine. “We are honored to have the opportunity to partner with Wayzata Compass Technology and Cybersecurity Group for the first time, as we have partnered with their Business and Economic Group for the past three years. This group of highly engaged students worked hard over a 7 week period to research and present ideas on how to educate others on the importance of cybersecurity.

“Part of the Wayzata High School Compass program is rooted in partnerships formed with local businesses to create authentic projects and add relevance to the learning that takes place in the classroom,” says Wayzata Schools Compass Coordinator Scott Tordeur. . “Our partnership with TopLine Federal Credit Union has provided students with the opportunity to gain real-world experience with those who work directly in technology. We appreciate this opportunity to partner with TopLine and look forward to working with them again in the future.

Compass students practice employability skills such as workplace communication and emotional intelligence while exploring career paths and working side-by-side with professionals in the workplace. Through partnerships with North Hennepin and Normandale Community Colleges, students who successfully complete Compass courses earn college credits. The Compass program draws its inspiration from the Center for Advanced Professional Studies (CAPS), a proven model of partnership between business, community and public education. Students are completely immersed in a professional culture, solve real-world problems, use industry-standard tools, and are mentored by real employers, all while receiving high school and college credits. Today, dozens of school districts across the United States, including Wayzata, are members of the CAPS network.

Vincent Neal appointed first executive director of Canvas Foundation

Canvas Credit Union, one of Colorado’s leading credit unions for more than 84 years, celebrates the Canvas Foundation’s latest efforts focused on investing in the Fort Collins community.

Aligned with one of Credit Union’s pillars of community giving – schools – Canvas continues to deepen its commitment to Colorado State University. Canvas donated packaged vans to CSU’s Admissions Department, to enhance the campus tour experience with prospective students and their families. The donation comes as the partnership marks the second year of the Canvas Scholars program to benefit first-generation students. So far, the scholarship program has supported 10 students, awarding a total of $36,500. Canvas has a longstanding relationship with CSU, launching its 15-year sponsorship agreement with the university in 2018. Canvas operates Lory’s Student Center branch on campus, offers dedicated CSU account services to students, faculty and staff, and holds the naming rights for the university’s Canvas Stadium.

Canvas also recently hosted an event to celebrate its latest investment in the city – the new mural on the Old Firehouse Books building in Old Town – alongside Fort Collins Mayor Jeni Arndt and other dignitaries. Canvas commissioned the mural from local artists Lindz and Lamb – which captures the essence of Canvas’ “Go Live” mantra – to add charm, character and color to the town.

Advancing its goal of serving as a champion in Colorado communities, the credit union has named the first executive director of the Canvas Foundation, Vincent Neal, to drive these community impact opportunities. Established in 2016, Canvas Foundation’s goal is to support and nurture areas critical to Colorado communities: schools, families, military, and first responders. Previously a community engagement specialist at Canvas, Vincent’s experience in relationship building and community impact makes him a natural fit to move the Canvas Foundation forward.

The impact of Canvas’ spirit of service and commitment to the community is reflected in the latest Best of Fort Collins awards. Organized by the Fort Collins Coloradoan, the community voted Canvas the winner in the credit union and bank categories.

“We are committed to sharing our hearts with our communities, and the partnership we have been able to establish within Fort Collins has far exceeded our wildest dreams,” said Neal. “That spirit will only grow in our next chapter at The Canvas Foundation, and it’s humbling to see the community also recognize the Canvas difference.”

The Great Lakes Credit Union (GLCU) ​​added another award to its long list of accolades last Wednesday, when the Marketing Association of Credit Unions (MAC) officially recognized the GLCU team with the Bronze “Community Engagement” award for billion dollar organizations and more. The credit union was honored for its “Summer Celebrations” in 2021, during which GLCU hosted community festivities at three of its branches—Waukegan, Country Club Hills, and Crystal Lake—to increase neighborhood participation; increase awareness of GLCU’s products and tools and services; and show potential and existing credit union members how GLCU can help them achieve their financial goals.

The 2021 summer festivities welcomed families and individuals from the community with food trucks; promotional items and tickets for sporting events; children’s activities, including face painting and a petting zoo; raffle items; and gifts. Attendees had the opportunity to win concert tickets, sports memorabilia, movie passes, gift cards and more.

By engaging the neighborhoods it serves, GLCU has been able to make new connections and strengthen relationships with community members; the branch’s three successful celebrations drew approximately 600 people from the surrounding area.

In the wake of a pandemic isolation, GLCU understands that communities are looking for the human connection that credit unions have traditionally been known for. Even though GLCU is making strides in digitally transforming the member experience and using the latest technologies to deliver tailored services, such as with its first digital Libertyville branch, the summer celebrations were just one means by which the nonprofit organization has demonstrated its focus on personal relationships at its center.

This member-driven approach is one of the many reasons GLCU is consistently recognized as an industry leader on the national stage. In April, the GLMV Chamber of Commerce awarded the GLCU team the 2022 Community Involvement Gem Award for their support, participation and leadership in the Coats for Veterans initiative, as well as other community programs. assets of GLCU. Earlier this year, the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) honored GLCU’s marketing team with two Diamond Awards – the first recognizing the organization for collecting and donating 1,750 supplies to local schools, and the second for his best social media campaign.

Previously, the GLCU team received the first-ever CUES DEI: Catalyst for Change award in 2021, and in 2019 the organization received first place in the 2019 DesJardins Financial Education Awards for leadership on behalf of financial literacy young people.

ORONO – University Credit Union recognizes the achievements of Amanda Allen, Madison Gray and Carla Theriault, who completed CUNA’s Financial Counseling Program (FiCEP) and earned the Certified Financial Counselor (CCUFC) designation.

Accredited by the Credit Union National Association (CUNA), FiCEP equips credit union employees with the skills and knowledge to guide their members toward sound financial decisions. Employees who pass the FiCEP exam earn the CCUFC designation. FiCEP covers a wide range of financial education topics, from savings principles, to understanding types of debt, identity theft and more.

“We understand that money can be a sensitive topic and not everyone has experienced the same degree or quality of financial education,” said UCU President and CEO Renee. Ouellette. “By equipping our professionals with the skills to increase members’ financial confidence, we are creating an environment where members can feel comfortable asking questions while accessing the products and services needed to achieve their goals.”
