Are you frustrated with your bank? Are you getting hit with needless fees? Or feeling like you have to fight to get some good customer service?
Today, we're going to look at credit unions and we're going to see why they may be the right option for you.
One of the most important decisions you can make with your money is choosing where you bank because it's the foundation of your family's finances.
Ideally, you want a banking system that allows you to take care of your essential bills, save up for important goals, and set aside something for fun, like vacations.
As you heard in the teaser, though – that can be difficult when your bank is working against your best interest.
The good news is that those banks that are on the news aren’t your only option.
You can get better services and competitive rates by moving your money. One overlooked option that can give you both is switching to a credit union.
Joe Mecca from Coastal Federal Credit Union and I are discussing and answering some big questions families typically have about credit unions.
Now, if you’ve been a part of this community, you already know Coastal Credit Union is a sponsor. However, you may not know that we have been members of Coastal years before they came on board here.
I’ll include a link so you can hear the details, but a very long story short, we had been burned and were frustrated by our old bank, which happened to be one of the big banks. I’m almost embarrassed at how long we waited, but finally, we had enough, so we looked for other options.
Eventually, I discovered Coastal and yeah, it’s been like night and day. We've been happy with their service. I’d like you to have the same win.
Whether you're in this area and you use Coastal, some other credit union, or a different banking option, the key thing is I want you to review your finances and make sure you're happy with whoever you decide to bank with.
In this episode, we’ll get into:

Did you know that it’s estimated that there are currently over 24 million “forgotten” 401(k) accounts? In fact, the average American changes jobs every 4 years.
And because of the Great Resignation, you or someone you know might be changing jobs even more
It’s an extreme case of out of sight and out of mind. Is your old 401(k) in there somewhere, left behind at a job you're no longer with?
One huge benefit of an IRA is choosing how your money is invested, not your old employer.
If you want to consolidate your old 401(k) and have more options with how you invest, it may be time to roll them over into an IRA.
With Capitalize, they handle the process from start to finish – for FREE and yes that includes calling the 401(k) provider on your behalf.
