    Back to School Time

    Sep 13, 2019

    In today’s world, it takes more than good grades in school for kids to succeed in life. Just as important as science, reading and math is learning about money—how it works and how to manage it to reach our goals in life.

    Financial education is a priority for us at KeyPoint, so we offer two programs for Members to help educate their children on the basics of managing money.

    Balance Track

    This interactive personal finance education program for students age 16+ provides the groundwork for financial success and sound money management skills in a series of 21 online modules, including Financial Basics and Planning for Success.

    Youth Banking

    The KeyPoint Youth Banking program is designed to help students under age 18 learn about banking and managing their money:

    • Youth FREE Checking Account with a minimum opening balance of just $25, and no monthly service fee or monthly minimum balance required

    As the children in your life head back to school, KeyPoint is here to help you provide the financial education they need to understand how money works and how to manage it wisely. It’s one of the most valuable lessons you can help them learn as they move forward in life.

    We’re listening

    Jun 14, 2019

    Everything we do at KeyPoint is designed to help our Members achieve their financial goals with the best products, services and technology available today. And we’re always looking for more ways to make them even better.

    One of the ways we do that is by encouraging Members to give us feedback and let us know where they see opportunities to improve and enhance our offerings. Here are three new enhancements to our Mobile App that we made recently in response to feedback we received:

    Make Transfers Faster: We’ve redesigned the functionality for making transfers in and out of your accounts. When you go to Transfer, choose either “Transfer In” or “Transfer Out.” The fields will be automatically populated based on your selection, enabling you to make your transfer in seconds.

    Access eStatements Easier: We’ve made the Mobile App more intuitive and user friendly for Members who have multiple eStatements. Now, all your accounts enrolled in eStatements will appear in a single list. Simply choose the account you want, and see all your eStatements in one location.

    Order New Checks in Minutes: Now, you can order checks quickly and easily through a single-sign on (SSO) that goes directly to our check printing partner. Simply go to the Account Details page, click on the Order Checks icon, and place your order.

    These enhancements are just a few of the ways we’re working to make it easier and more convenient to manage your finances. It’s all part of our commitment to providing KeyPoint Members with the best products, services and technology available today. We’re listening!

    Home Equity

    May 01, 2019

    With Spring already here and Summer coming soon, many of us are thinking about improvements we’d like to make to our home. 

    If your home is worth more than you owe, you have home equity.  A home equity line of credit or home equity loan might be the best way to get the money you need. Rates and terms on a home equity line or loan are often a lot more favorable than you’ll get with a credit card or other financing method.  You could also use your home equity loan or line for debt consolidation or education expenses. 

    KeyPoint Credit Union offers home equity lines of credit with a fixed-rate introductory period of one or three years, followed by a variable rate period. We also offer fixed-rate home equity loans. There are no annual or early termination fees, and your interest may be tax deductible (but check with your tax advisor). And right now, we are offering 50% off closing fees! 

    We exist to improve the lives of people—our members. We enable smart financial decisions for today...and every day to come.
