PRESIDENT’S

MESSAGE

by Lynn Huether

I’d like to take this opportunity to remind every Class Act member that they are co-owners of one very special organization. Class Act Federal Credit Union is

a not for profit, financial cooperative, created by teachers to serve the personal finance needs of the local educational community. We sincerely hope our members don’t think of Class Act as merely another BANK. Granted, we do offer all of the same products and convenient services that you would find at a large national bank, but the similarities go no further than that. I truly hope that our mission of serving education resonates as deeply with the membership as it does with our employees and board members.

Class Act members have access to a wealth of financial benefits that exceed even most other credit unions. For the second straight year, Class Act has

been recognized for saving members $360 per household which is more than double the savings of the average Kentucky credit union. High use members fared even better, saving an estimated $1,651 simply by banking at Class Act.* I don’t share this to boast, but rather so that members realize the tangible financial benefits they receive and to encourage more of you to maximize your benefits by becoming high use members. The study highlighted three products in particular that offered the greatest savings – car loans, credit cards, and Honors Checking. If you have your checking, car loan, or credit

card with any other financial institution you are likely missing out on significant savings. I would be remiss if I didn’t also acknowledge that along with those benefits, membership in a cooperative also comes with individual responsibilities. The degree

to which members support and promote the credit union has a direct impact on the

entire organization. For instance, excessive losses due to unpaid loans leads to tighter

underwriting guidelines making it harder for other members to get a loan, whereas timely loan payments allows us to make even more loans and at better rates. Similarly, electing e-Statements saves the credit union money which is given back to the members in the form of higher yields on deposits, lower rates on loans, and larger investments in new technology and services. More importantly, your patronage to the credit union allows us to support programs and events within the very educational community we serve. If you follow us on social media, you already know how involved we are in our area schools. We are delighted to be able to support teachers, bus drivers, students, administrators, and other support staff. We are eager to do even more and with your support we will do just that. Thank you.

Convenient Car Loans Without Indirect Lending!

Notice! Class Act has recently discontinued our Here & Now indirect auto lending program. Indirect lending was created as a convenient way for credit union members to obtain a car loan right at the dealership without any additional costs to the members. However, in recent years competition for these loans has dramatically increased incentives paid to dealerships. Most indirect financial institutions now pass those costs on to the borrower in the form of additional

fees and often even higher interest rates. Class Act doesn’t believe that members should have to pay hundreds of dollars in fees, plus possibly thousands more in interest for this convenience. We’d much

New Higher Debit Card Limits!

image

In response to feedback from our members, we have raised debit card limits for point of sale purchases from

$1,000 per day to $2,000 per day for all adult members. (Limits for members under 18 years of age remain at

$200 per day). Daily limits for ATM withdrawals remain unchanged at

$500 per day. We will continue to offer a temporary increase on the daily purchase limit up to $3,000 for 24 hours with the service charge of $5.00. These limits help the credit union control financial losses due to fraud. As always, we work to balance those risks while giving members ample access to their money.
