Valentine’s Day is almost here and in honor of the holiday that celebrates love, we want to share some reasons why you should love your credit union! Keep reading for five reasons to love CTFCU this Valentine’s Day.

Non-Profit & Member-Owned

Unlike other financial institutions, CTFCU is operated by members for members. With a democratically elected board, decisions for the credit union are made by members just like you, and the board is trusted to make decisions that benefit the entire membership. Since the credit union is a non-profit institution, CTFCU eliminates the high-interest rates and fees that come with for-profit banks.

Community Involvement

CTFCU takes pride in staying involved in the Woburn community and takes every opportunity to give back. During the months of February and March, we are pledging to donate $1 to Woburn’s Council of Social Concern for every new page like or follow we receive on Facebook and Twitter. The Council of Social Concern provides affordable childcare, food assistance programs and parenting education courses to the community of Woburn. We are aiming to donate $500 to help support this great work.

Online Resources

Because we strive to help our members thrive financially, we are proud to offer online resources that help to accomplish this goal. Our Financial Education Center is a one-stop resource center to help members learn the right skills for managing their financial future. The Financial Education Center is a tool that any member can make use of, no matter how much or how little they already know about managing their finances. Courses include everything from money basics, paying for college, and preventing elder fraud.

Partnerships to Help You

CTFCU is always looking to create partnerships with other businesses that will benefit our members. For example, we have teamed up with TurboTax to offer members $15 off TurboTax federal products. In addition, CTFCU works alongside Northeast Planning Associates through a strategic alliance to offer financial planning services. Services cover topics such as qualified accounts, insurance programs, investment programs and much more.

Promotions Built for Our Members’ Needs

CTFCU aims to offer useful promotions that suit our members’ needs. From offering different types of loans and CD savings rates, we work to make sure that the promotions we offer are ones that help our members the best. This month, we are offering promotions for both auto loans and home equity loans. Learn more about our current promotion offerings by visiting our promotions page.

On top of these, there are many more reasons to love your credit this Valentine’s Day and during the rest of the year. Visit our branch to learn about more services that can help you.
