Today we are pleased to welcome you to The $tation. This is your place for all things financial education and empowerment. The $tation features more than 5 interactive learning modules that will help you manage your finances and plan for your future with confidence. Whether you are looking to get a handle on some of the basics, understand the mortgage process, or learn about your options for retirement and college saving, The $tation is the resource for you.

Check out our custom playlists on The $tation here and be sure to check back regularly, because we’ll be adding new modules every few weeks. Please also follow along on social media and here on our blog, where we’ll be sharing tips and suggestions for you to consider when it comes to setting and achieving your financial goals. 

If you’re unsure of where to start, consider the fact that savers with a plan are twice as likely to save successfully for things like retirement and education1. So if you don’t yet have one, creating a plan is a good place to start.

You can also kick start healthy money habits with a budget, setting aside a designated amount to reach your goal. Success builds on success, no matter how little. Whether you’re saving for a vacation or starting a tuition fund, set a reasonable goal and see how good it feels when you reach it. Starting small is a great way to dream big. Check out our handy calculator to see what saving just 1% more could do for you over time. 

One way to help yourself save regularly is to set up an automatic transfer from your checking account, so that you can save without even thinking about it. To stay on top of your finances, use all of the tools available to you, including online and mobile banking or signing up for text alerts. When it comes to budgeting and saving, it helps to always know where you stand.

Whether The $tation is your starting point, or perhaps it is a stopping place for a quick refresher, there is always something new to learn about how to manage your money and plan for your future. 

No matter where you are in your financial journey, we’re here to be your advocate and to help you along the way. To learn more about all of our saving solutions, stop by one of our Community Offices or visit
