CU System
Hanscom offers members support for tough times
HANSCOM AFB, Mass. (2/26/09)--Hanscom FCU is offering its members free credit score enhancements with a trained adviser. Members can avoid the fee normally charged for obtaining a credit score and receive a complete explanation of their credit reports, and advice on how to improve their scores, announced the $650 million asset credit union. The credit union also provides free financial counseling services through a partnership with the BALANCE financial fitness program. Members receive personalized advice on budgeting, getting out of debt, purchasing a new home or vehicle, and other topics. A no-fee debt-management service helps members consolidate debt and--in some instances--reduce interest rates and fees, said the credit union. In January, Hanscom FCU introduced CU Thrive, an account that offers a favorable rate when members build savings through a monthly automatic transfer from their checking accounts. “Individuals and families everywhere are looking to do the right thing with each and every dollar, and the financial institutions that serve them should be looking for ways to make that easier,” said Paul Marotta, Hanscom board chairman. “A responsible, educated membership can only be good for all of us as the country moves forward.”
