PROTECTING YOUR ASSETS AND YOUR FAMILY

California / Nevada Credit Union League
CONSIDER THIS:  According to a Caring.com survey, only 42 percent of adults in this country have estate planning documents such as a will or living trust.

These documents formally address distribution of assets, and for parents, wills and trusts outline directives for the care and custody of their children. And letting the people you want to take care of your children know your wishes and communicating your intentions to the state via legally recorded documents is important.

Learn the Basics and Benefits: Personal Loans 101

Bennett Queen
Greater Nevada Credit Union
When you were a child, did you ask your parents for ten dollars because you wanted to buy something that you couldn’t afford? Did they reply, “Okay, but you’re going to have to pay me back, plus interest.” If they did, they were teaching you a valuable lesson about borrowing. There are many types of loans. There are loans used to purchase a home (mortgage), loans used to purchase a car (auto loan), and even loans used to finance your way through college (student loans).  Unlike these, personal loans aren’t used for specific purposes. If you’re unfamiliar with what a personal loan can be used for, or if you’d like a refresher course, read on to find out more!
