Scheduled Service to Home, Mobile and Phone Banking

 
There may be interruptions to home, mobile and telephone banking services Tuesday, April 21 and Thursday, April 23 from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. Our provider is performing maintenance on its technology infrastructure. Your patience is requested.

Attention Quicken/Quickbook Unity One Credit Union users!

 

Quicken/Quickbooks has acknowledged that there were connection errors, on its part, that made transferring account information difficult for Unity One Credit Union members during the system conversion performed in March. Therefore, the credit union is migrating to a NEW Quicken/Quickbooks ID Friday, April 17.  

We have been assured that this change will resolve the issue; however, you will need to:

  • Deactivate and reactivate accounts again.
  • Choose Unity One Credit Union - NEW from the directory.

Click here for instructions detailing how to complete the deactivation and reactivation process, in addition to how to correct duplications. 

Thank you for your patience.

Credit union informs: Combining finances for #FirstTimers

 

shutterstock 151832219 smallMoney can either bring couples together or tear them apart. It has often been cited as the No. 1 reason for divorce. But it doesn't have to be that way.  

Here are a few tips for newlyweds to launch a healthy financial future: 

  • Get a financial snapshot - Talk to each other about your past financial history. Show your partner your pay stubs and financial accounts. Pull each of your credit scores. It's important to know about each person's past so you know what you will be dealing with as a couple. 
  • One, two or three accounts - Deciding whether to combine all of your accounts into one or each maintaining your own personal finances is a big decision. Many financial experts advocate for the three-account system. Each partner maintains their own savings and checking account and they both contribute to a joint third account. There is no right or wrong way to handle this, the important thing is to talk about it and make a decision as a couple. 
  • Create a budget and talk about it regularly - Understanding how your money is spent and talking about it frequently is the first great step to building a financially sound life together. 
  • Have an emergency fund - Whether it's three or six months' worth of daily living expenses, start saving as soon as possible. Make sure the funds are in a liquid account (like a savings account, not a 401(k) account) so you can access them in case of an emergency. 
  • Share your goals - Do you want to buy a house? Retire early? Have a large family? Sharing financial goals and deciding on how to achieve them can bring you together more as a couple.

Remember, communication is the key to a healthy marriage. Talking about your finances early on in your relationship will save you from heartbreaking discussions later. For more financial tips for newlyweds, visit The Real Deal.
