What to do if you have student loans.

What to do if you have student loans.

We Own Our Bank
CONSIDER THIS:  The country’s combined student loan debt load is more than $1.35 trillion. A 2016 college graduate is projected to have $37,000 in student loan debt, according to the Huffington Post. Student loan debt is increasing because government grants and support for postsecondary education have failed to keep pace with increases in college costs. This has shifted much of the burden of paying for college from federal and state governments to families.

Brittany Flores

Being that I’m the only person in my group of friends that works in banking, I frequently get asked financial advice and recommendations to help with any given situation. I have one friend who is a 21-year-old college student who is relatively new to the work force. He has no credit to his name and had asked me why having credit was so important in the first place.

The Value of ATM Networks and Shared Branching

The Value of ATM Networks and Shared Branching

Kristina Kraus
Greater Nevada Credit Union
When choosing a financial institution, a lot of the decision making is centered on convenience. Is it conveniently located near my home or office? Can I access my accounts if I travel? Are there plenty of ATMs nearby? Often times, big banks come to mind first, but what most people don’t realize is that banking with a credit union has just as much value or even more than a bank.
