OCCU snapshot: a quick take on what’s new

  • Who’s calling? For many of us, when the phone rings, it means there’s an emergency. But just as likely, it’s a phone scammer, with their own “emergency.” They need you to wire money or deliver gift cards to a stranger to pay off an overdue tax bill. If you’re not careful, they can be very convincing. Know the signs so you can protect yourself.
     
  • Giving back. We’re not even halfway through 2024 and thanks to the generosity of people like you, we’ve made incredible strides to help our community thrive. We’re a force for good! Here’s what we achieved together.
     
  • Every member has a story. From reaching financial stability to teaching their children to save, every OCCU member has a special story to share. Like Beau! Hear his OCCU story and consider sharing yours.

Upgrade your checking. It’s Remarkably easy!

A checking account is more than just a way to fund the checks you write (if you still write them). It’s a central hub for most of your financial activity. Your debit card purchases, your online bill payments, your transfers — there’s a good chance that your checking account is doing a lot of heavy lifting.

But it can do more. Remarkably more.

Remarkable Checking from OCCU is a free checking account with no fees or minimum balance, unlimited ATM usage2 and a great interest rate that lets you earn while you spend. 

To earn the most possible interest, all you have to do is meet a few simple requirements each month:

  • Use your debit card 12 times. 
  • Set up at least one direct deposit or auto-pay. 
  • Sign up for eStatements. 

When it comes to your money, why should you settle for anything less than remarkable? Imagine the possibilities that could open up when you start earning more from your checking. Learn more about how you could benefit from opening a Remarkable Checking account today.

Build a better budget

There is no one-size-fits-all strategy when it comes to budgeting. Some people follow the 50-30-20 rule. Some folks figure it out as they go along. Every person has a different needs, different wants and different incomes. But there are some basic tenets you’ll find most successful budgets follow.

  • Don’t spend more than you make. (It sounds obvious, but....)
  • Use a high-yield savings account to grow your money even faster.
  • Allow yourself a little fun money.

When you’re ready to buckle down and budget, we’re here to help. If you’re just beginning your budgeting journey, start with the basics. Then, take all that money you’re saving and make it work for you with a high-yield savings account!
