College Assistance Plus Workshop

If you have children approaching their college years and are concerned about the high cost of a college education, join us for an educational workshop: "Get a Degree, Not Debt!"

We have invited College Assistance Plus, a firm located in Honeoye Falls, N.Y., to provide this informational seminar to introduce their service that helps clients strategically approach selecting a college and negotiating the cost.

The workshop will cover:

  • A practical look at planning and paying for college
  • Preventing college debt
  • Understanding how the FAFSA works
  • Common, costly mistakes

The seminar will be held Wed., October 17, at our Mendon branch. Registration is required, so please call 624-7474 or visit PittsfordFCU.org to reserve your spot.



Test Your Financial Knowledge

Pittsford FCU is dedicated to helping you get ahead financially, which is why we are excited to provide BalanceTrack, an online personal finance education center at PittsfordFCU.org/BalanceTrack.

There are 19 BalanceTrack courses designed to help you explore all of the essential elements of personal finance. Each learning module is interactive with links to helpful resources, as well as a quiz to allow you to test your knowledge of the subject.

While the courses are for all ages, they may be especially useful in helping introduce your child to these financial topics. For example, if your teen is buying their first car, assign them the "Drive Away Happy" module. We even know of members who offer their children a financial reward for each course they complete with the thought that the investment will pay for itself if their children learn to save, invest, or avoid bank fees.

In fact, Pittsford FCU believes in rewarding education as well. Students opening a checking account qualify for a $25 credit when they complete the "Checking Account Management" module. And, this past summer, we held a Learn and Win promotion offering members a chance to win one of five $100 Visa Gift cards when they completed the "Identity Theft" module. Congratulations to our contest winners: Jean Berry, Batavia; Catherine Holton, Honeoye Falls; Robert Hutchins, Pittsford; Richard Smith, East Rochester; and Peter Woodams, Jr., Pittsford.

Mortgage Closing Cost Benefit

Recently, Diane Mark, part of our Mortgage Lending Team, received an email from Pittsford FCU member Roy Wildermuth. Roy has been a member since 2005 and recently closed on a mortgage refinance. His message explained that he had saved $4,500 by choosing Pittsford FCU instead of another lender with whom he had applied. And, Pittsford FCU's rate was lower as well.

Of course a great rate and lower costs are important, but Diane knows the real value Pittsford FCU offers is our lifetime Mortgage Service Guarantee. We guarantee you will deal with Pittsford FCU team members throughout the servicing of every mortgage, and your loan servicing will never be sold to a third party in some distant location.

Real-life situations like this remind us that people truly appreciate the difference membership can make. It can be tempting to be pulled in by slick marketing and seemingly too-good-to-be-true offers touted by big, national firms, but in the end, Pittsford FCU offers real, every-day value.

Enjoy the benefits of membership – consider Pittsford FCU the next time you need a mortgage or decide the time is right to refinance.
