HPAL Tip of the Week:
Pay yourself first.
When you receive your paycheck, set aside at least 10 percent. A good rule of thumb is to place 6 percent in a retirement fund, 2 percent in an emergency fund and 2 percent in a savings account. Use auto-deduct and you’ll be saving money without even realizing it.
You are encouraged to use these weekly tips on your website, social media pages or in other communication with your members to illustrate one more way credit unions help people afford life.
