Fight Financial Flu Symptoms with Mutual Savings Credit Union
As we make our way through cold and flu season, it’s important to recognize the symptoms of a possible financial cold that is keeping your finances from being in top shape. Let’s take a look at some very common symptoms – and their cures!
Forgetting payments accompanied by unwanted fees
Unwanted fees are the result of being late with your bill payments. Forgetting the payment due date is a common mistake and the cure is easier to apply than you think. With MSCU’s online bill pay, you can schedule payments in advance or simply schedule automatic payments to be taken from your account as frequently as needed.
Misplaced statements accompanied by inaccurate account balance
Your account statement is an important tool, especially when trying to make sure your balance is accurate. Unfortunately, statements can become lost in the shuffle with bills and other pieces of mail. To combat the sensations associated with a lost statement, MSCU recommends that you sign up for e-statements today. In place of your paper statement, you’ll receive an email that contains a secure link to your statement. You can even save the statement to your computer and access it at a moment’s notice.
The risk of carrying cash accompanied by a bulky wallet
If you misplace cash, anyone can find your money and use it. To reduce this risk, use a debit card from MSCU. Your person identification number (PIN) prevents others from using your debit card if misplaced or stolen. In addition to being a safe alternative to carrying cash, debit cards also help you trim down your bulky wallet!
