Grow Your Best Life

Live Your Best Life by Achieving Financial Freedom

When you are financially independent or free, you have a lot more options. You don’t have to wonder if your bank account can handle groceries, job loss, unexpected repairs, etc. Financial freedom isn't easy, it's something to be learned, to grow and to achieve.  

Accept responsibility. If you want to fully change your financial future and hit that independence, you need to accept responsibility. Own up to your financial mistakes and understand your money decisions greatly affect your wealth in the future.

It’s completely okay to make mistakes or not be financially savvy, but take charge and own up to it all. This will greatly impact your financial IQ and mindset to reach your goals.

Learn how to manage money. If you don’t understand where your money is going or how to control your spending, you’ll find that financial freedom will not be possible. The challenge is, a lot of people let money control them and it can spiral out of control.

Take charge and don’t be afraid to face the numbers.

  • Keep track of your net worth, personal spending, and any investments.  These tools from NAFCU are perfect for this.
  • Know how much money you bring in and how much goes out. You can catch a lot of overspending or places to make cuts to get more money back in your pocket.
  • Develop a budget to help you stay on track and adjust as need over time. You should be spending about an hour each week with your budget. It’s your new best friend.

Members' Voice Testimonials

USSFCU puts members first and helps people. Compared to U.S. banks, which forget their humble beginnings and often behave like (they are) above the law. Credit unions seem to have maintained their purpose and USSFCU is among the best. I am proud to be a member and grateful for the service provided by USSFCU.

I've been a member for about 31 years now and I've always been able to count on the USSFCU when I've really needed them.

Excellent customer service. Staff are knowledgeable, responsive and able to provide individualized help. I live in another state and am still amazed how easy it is to use USSFCU for all my financial needs. It has always been this way and with technology solutions, it is easier than ever. But it is the personal assistance that really makes the diffe...

Been a member for a very long time. I have always been treated with kindness and expertise. Keep up the good work!

Love the phone calls regarding possible suspicious activity with my account. It's reassuring to know that everything is safe.

I would recommend the USSFCU based on the excellent customer service I have received from the Senate Credit unions I have visited (Eisenhower and GAO).

Accessibility and customer service have been exceptional. I have been a member for almost 40 years and have always been satisfied with the service and professionalism of the staff.

USSFCU cares about those who bank with it and that caring is not lip service but translates into action.

I have been with the credit union for almost 15 years and all in all am extremely pleased with the service I have gotten. Definitely better than any bank.

Very personable, solution based and takes in interest in your situation.

Unfailing service by dedicated staff. I feel that USSFCU has my back. Staff has gone to bat for me whenever needed. I'm not aware on any mistake or inconvenience in my 30 years of membership. Excellent long term leadership, continuity and service by board.

Easy to become a member and superb customer support. I dealt with two different USSFCU representatives and they were fantastic. I was able to reach them immediately or if they were tied up they contacted me as soon as they became available. They helped me open an IRA and answered any and all questions with great attitudes and professionalism. They ...

The credit union provides relatively good services and the security updates to the system are noticeable.

It took a matter of minutes to open the account and purchase a CD. The credit union that I have done business with for about 40 years took more than a week to close a joint account and transfer the funds to a new account when my husband died.

Outstanding online and mobile banking services. Professional, Courteous, knowledgeable responsive staff!
