Great Reasons to ELEVATE Your Financial Life!
Lack of Financial Education: Financial education is important, but isn’t focused on in public schools or government forums. The lack of focus on financial education puts stress on members when trying to make financial decisions.
Financial decisions are becoming harder: People are becoming more involved in financial decisions from 401K plans, pensions, debt consolidations and purchasing a home. HFCU members have asked for guidance in making these life-changing decisions.
Life expectancy: The increasing longevity in comparison to other generations creates the need for more retirement savings.
Technology: The financial markets are swifter and more volatile, due to technological advances such as online applications, e-tellers, and electronic trading which impact the consumer faster based on a signal decision. Houston Federal Credit Union wants our members to understand the impact of technology and financial decisions.
