Are You Ready to Make the Move Toward Homeownership?
Interest rates are still low, and that means more buying power and lower payments. Take the leap and contact one of our mortgage specialists for a pre-approval at 866-430-9535 or log on to the hamiltonhorizons.org Mortgage Center to find out how much house you can afford. Act now and receive a $200 closing cost credit when you close your loan with Hamilton Horizons Federal Credit Union.
Already a homeowner? We can help you decide if your current loan is still the right option for you or if a refinance could save you money or improve your financial position. It’s time to climb the steps to your new home or a better loan.
Home Buying Seminar
Preparing for homeownership starts long before you drive through neighborhoods and attend open houses. It starts by getting your finances in good working order. If you do, you could save thousands of dollars in interest over the life of the mortgage.
Whether your goal is to own your own home, look for a different home or refinance your existing mortgage, the process requires careful planning, education, patience and a clear understanding of the costs involved. And because of the significant financial investment required to purchase a house, the credit union is here to lend a helping hand.
Hamilton Horizons FCU will be hosting a free informational Home Buying Seminar on Friday, October 21, 2016, at 6:00 PM at the credit union.
Call Tom at 609-631-4300 x107 by October 14, 2016, to reserve your space.
IMPORTANT Card Upgrades!
Visa® Credit Cards are being upgraded to chip cards in September and debit cards are being upgraded in October!
Please be sure to open the letters being sent to your home address, which will explain in detail the cut-off dates and activation requirements for each card. New cards are being mailed to your home address. Follow the instructions included in the letter.
Visa Credit Cards will have UChoose Rewards®! You will be sent instructions to sign up. All Visa Credit Card holders are eligible for UChoose Rewards. Rewards include travel options, merchandise and cash back as a statement credit—all managed online.
Once the upgrades are completed, tokenization with Apple Pay®, Android Pay™ and Samsung Pay will be implemented, and mobile wallet will be available. All you will need to carry to use your card is your smartphone!
Traveling out of the country?
That’s a fraud trigger for debit and credit card companies. If you
are traveling abroad, give us a call, and we will notify the debit and credit card companies
about when and where you’re going so your account won’t get locked out.
Silver Citizen Club
For our mature members, 65 and older: We appreciate your dedication to the credit union, so we have started a special club just for you. You don’t need to do anything to join; we know your birthday! By virtue of your age,you receive one free box of checks (let us know when you run out), one free grocery bag full of shredding per year (just bring it to the office), free paper statements (we know, they were always free before, but almost everyone else will be paying for them) and a 10bps bump on one CD of your choice peryear. It’s the least we can do for you—a small thank you for remaininga member.
We Are the Alternative to the BIG BANK.
The big bank sets unrealistic sales quotas for employees. These quotas pressure employees to defraud customers in order make their quota and keep their jobs. The employees are terminated, big bank pays a $185 million settlement to the CFPB and the former consumer banking chief who oversaw those employees “retires” with a package worth $124.6 million. Sound familiar?
Why support the big bank when you can work with your credit union? We are a not-for-profit financial cooperative. When you open an account with us, you become a member. We put members’ interests first; we don’t have investors! We promise we will not open an account you don’t want, and besides…we don’t charge you anyway!
Open a free and uncomplicated checking account with your local credit union.
Not all banks and credit unions charge monthly fees. If you feel your financial institution doesn’t really want your business, open an account with us; we want your business!
We offer free checking with a free Visa® debit card and Virtual Branch—letting you access your accounts 24 hours a day, 365 days a year from anywhere. Access through Virtual Branch, Mobiliti™ and Mobile Deposit on your smartphone or tablet allows you to view accounts, make transfers, pay bills, pay friends or move money between your own accounts at any financial institution.
