From the President & CEO
Build your next story
The home stretch for 2019 is upon us and as we begin to leave behind the oppressive summer days and welcome in the cool autumn nights, it’s the perfect time to start thinking ahead.
So far this year, we’ve encouraged you to draw your financial blueprint, lay a solid foundation and frame your potential. Now, as fall approaches, it’s time to build your next story.
At American Airlines Federal Credit Union, we recognize that it’s difficult to envision your future without knowing how you’re going to pay for it. That’s why we’re here to help.
One of our best tools to create a solid, long-term savings plan is our share certificates. Even if you don’t have a lot of extra cash, our Dream Plan Share Certificates can help you get a handle on your dreams without having to invest a large amount of money at one time. By starting small, with as little as a $25 monthly investment, you can build those savings over time and reach your goal even sooner than you think.
If you have a bit more to set aside but are nervous about committing to a three- or five-year certificate, you might consider a Share Certificate Ladder. It gives you peace of mind knowing a portion of the ladder matures in just one year but you get the benefit t of longer term certificate rates. Each year, as a portion of the ladder matures, you can assess whether it’s the time to start the next chapter in the story or if continued investment is the way to go.
As we get ever closer to the season of giving, it’s worth remembering that as a Credit Union member, you’ve got benefits worth sharing. Why not share the gift of membership with your eligible family members, friends and coworkers? You can even earn a little holiday cash for spreading the word.
All the best,
President & CEO
