Important Change to U.S. Savings Bonds

Paper savings bonds are no longer being sold at financial institutions. However, they're not going away – electronic savings bonds can be purchased online through TreasuryDirect.gov. Members can continue to redeem savings bonds at either branch location.



Financial Resolutions Made Easy

It's that time of year again – time when we tend to make resolutions to be healthier, wealthier, and wiser. Before you make any resolutions related to your finances, Pittsford FCU recommends that you arm yourself with important financial information, which is available online at PittsfordFCU.org/ResourceLibrary.


This is the only official site for consumers to obtain their free credit report once every 12 months from each of the nationwide consumer credit reporting companies: Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion. Other sites require a credit monitoring subscription service to obtain this information.


Credit Karma provides truly free credit scores to consumers direct from the credit bureaus. The site is ad supported, but your scores are retrieved securely with no hidden fees. In addition, Credit Karma can help show you how the various items on your credit report affect your credit score.


This free and anonymous service will help bring your debt into focus. After answering a few questions about your income and current debts, a simple financial analysis will provide a wealth of information – debt-to-income ratios, debt payment schedules, and suggested personal action strategies to help you get ahead financially.


If you prefer a more personal option to discuss budgeting and financial matters, give our partners at BALANCE a call. Through BALANCE, members will receive unbiased information and assistance. Simply call, toll-free, (888) 456-2227. Counselors are available Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. (EST), Friday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

In many cases, BALANCE counselors can answer your questions immediately. If you're wondering how long something stays on your credit report or whether it's better to lease or buy a car, you'll get the answers as soon as you call. For those with more complex issues, like debt problems or budget issues, an appointment will be scheduled, allowing enough time to go over your budget and discuss options.



Scholarships for High School Seniors

Pittsford FCU is once again presenting college-bound high school seniors with the opportunity to compete in three scholarship programs: Rochester Chapter of New York State Credit Unions Scholarship Program, The Credit Union Association of New York (CUANY), plus Pittsford FCU will be awarding five additional $1,000 scholarships exclusively to Pittsford FCU member-applicants.

With the increase in college costs, this is an opportunity high school seniors shouldn't pass up. Just don't delay! The application deadline for all scholarships is January 27. For more information about these scholarships, call our Member Services Department at 624-7474 or (800) 836-8010.
