Unity One CU informs: National Wear Red Day

Posted by Alyssa Guillory on Fri, Feb 05, 2016 @ 04:25 PM

NT_Branch.jpgUnity One Credit Union has partnered with the American Heart Association to Go Red for Women®. Employees celebrated National Wear Red Day on Friday, February 5, to bring special attention to the fact that heart disease and stroke kills more women than all cancers combined. Fortunately, 80 percent of cardiac events can be prevented with education and lifestyle changes.

A Decade of Success

Since the first National Wear Red Day in 2003, the American Heart Association has made tremendous strides in the fight against heart disease and stroke in women. Through research and education to healthy lifestyle changes, we’re proud that:

  • Nearly 90% have made at least one healthy behavior change.
  • More than one-third has lost weight.
  • More than 50% have increased their exercise.
  • 6 out of 10 have changed their diets.
  • More than 40% have checked their cholesterol levels.
  • One third has talked with their doctors about developing heart health plans.
  • Today, nearly 300 fewer women die from heart disease and stroke each day
  • Death in women has decreased by more than 30 percent over the past 10 years.

More Work is Crucial

Yet, with all these successes, 1 in 3 women die of heart disease and stroke each year,. But what’s more powerful? Millions of mothers, sisters, daughters and friends making a change. 

More than ever, your financial contributions help save women’s lives. You can help support this by purchasing paper hearts at any of our branch locations. The hearts are on sale for $1, $5 and $10. All donations will be given directly to the American Heart Association to aid in the awareness about heart disease and stroke as well as critical research to discover scientific knowledge about cardiovascular health.

Unity One CU informs: 6 Strategies to save money on your next winter vacation

Posted by Alyssa Guillory on Thu, Feb 04, 2016 @ 04:41 PM

shutterstock_315931436-web.jpgRelax! You can save money and take that dream vacation this winter by using a few of these tricks:

1. Forgo hotels in favor of rentals. Pay less per-person when you opt to rent a vacation house, as opposed to staying in a hotel. In addition to having more room and a kitchen at your disposal, you'll avoid pesky extras like resort fees and taxes.

2. Look for coupons. Sites like Groupon.com and LivingSocial.com can offer big discounts on local food and attractions. 

3. Drive, don't fly. With gas prices at their lowest point in years, you can stretch your budget by hitting the open road with your family instead of the airport. Driving also allows you to be more flexible with your plans. 

4. Cruise during the 'Wave Season'. Each January, February and March cruise lines offer significant savings for cruisers. Book during this time and you can get much more than just a great deal. Some cruise lines offer on-board incentives in addition to low fares.

5. Select an off-the-beaten path locale. In addition to saving money, you'll notice less tourists at these great locales. Cities like Milwauke, with their emerging local food movement and small museums, give you a big town feel at the small town price. 

6. Open a Vacation Club Account. Your vacation club account at Unity One Credit Union allows you to put as little as $10 a month aside to begin saving for your next vacation. Saving money in this account couldn't be simpler; use payroll deduction or automatic transfers to build up your stash of cash prior to your vacation.

More info on service interruption

Posted by Erayne Hill on Mon, Feb 01, 2016 @ 02:03 PM

We apologize for the service interruption this past weekend that made it difficult to log into home, mobile and telephone banking. We'd like to put your mind at ease in regards to the following:

  • Users were not locked out from failed attempts because logins and account data were not accessible.
  • No user data was ever compromised or exposed.
  • Processes such as bill pay and ACH/A2A don’t typically run on and can’t be scheduled for Saturdays, so these transactions were not lost. Normal bill pay and ACH/A2A routines run on Sunday afternoon/evenings. If you have examples of bill pay or ACH/A2A functions not working as expected, please contact us at 1-800-628-5517
  • No banking history was lost.
  • Any missed scheduled transfers ran Sunday night.
We value you as a member, and we work tirelessly to make sure your experience is hassle-free. We apologize for the inconvenience.
