New Horizons Credit Union participates in National America & Military Saves Week

MOBILE, AL (February 1, 2019) — As part of the National America Saves Week 2019, scheduled for February 25 – March 2, 2019, New Horizons Credit Union is spreading the saving message and urging its members and the community to take a personal pledge and make savings automatic as part of America & Military Saves Week – a national movement to encourage consumers to save.

New Horizons Credit Union partners with Green Path Financial Wellness to offer members free budgeting resources, webinars, and debt management tools that are designed to help develop savings goals and build credit.  These resources are available at NewHCU.org. Plus, New Horizons Credit Union offers the Americasaves.org link on their site at NewHCU.org for anyone wishing to learn more and make a pledge to save.

For active first responders and military personnel, New Horizons Credit Union offers a special Horizons Heroes Club account that members may qualify to receive such perks as .25% discount on consumer and personal loans and a .25% increase on our Certificate Account rates.  This club account, plus the resources available on Militarysaves.org, offers the tools necessary to save. Visit NewHCU.org for details.

“We are proud to join the America and Military Saves Week initiatives,” comments Patty Veal, VP of Marketing & Business Development at New Horizons Credit Union. “America Saves Week is a great time to remind people to Set a Goal, Make a Plan, and Save Incrementally through Direct Deposit – which should be part of any New Year’s resolution, too.”

America & Military Saves Week, coordinated by America Saves and its partners, is a national opportunity for organizations to work together within their communities to transform the lives of millions of Americans.  The week is an annual, cooperative effort to promote good savings behavior and a chance for individuals to assess their own saving status.
