Pre-Paid Debit Cards: A Smart Option for Students 
If you're a parent of a teenager or college student who needs to have access to cash, handing a credit card over to them can be a bit risky. To solve this problem, parents can help their children obtain a pre-paid debit card. 
 
One advantage of a pre-paid debit card is that it's more secure than a regular debit card because if there is a breach of security with a regular card, the criminal would have direct access to their account.  Another advantage is that it prevents the students from over spending because when the cash is out, it's out, and they won't be able to make any more purchases.

To learn more about getting a pre-paid debit card, call us at (210) 223-6561.

Accounts Teach Kids About Money
 
It's national youth month! To celebrate, we are focusing our educational efforts on the importance of teaching kids how to save. So if you have children or grandchildren, now is a great time to tap into these additional resources to teach them about money and the importance of saving. Just check out our Facebook page for some great tips. 
 
One great way to help children learn is to have them open a savings account. To learn more about the special accounts we have for children, teens and young adults, check out our website or stop a branch.
Prepaid Debit Cards:
A Smart Idea for Teens
 
Around junior-high age, many kids need to spend money when their parents aren't around. In these cases, credit and debit cards are the first options parents think of. However, because these options can be risky, we recommend getting your teen a prepaid debit card instead.
 
This option gives teens a set amount to spend and keeps you from experiencing overdraft charges if they spend too much because it will not allow expenditures over the card balance. It's also a great way to teach kids about budgeting because when the money is gone, it's gone. 
 
Select FCU prepaid debit cards cost $4.95 for the first money transfer and then only $1.95 per month plus .50 each time you load the card after that. For more details or to sign up for a prepaid debit card, give us a call at (210) 223-6561.

Sometimes life can be tough, leaving your credit in need of intensive care and your ability to get a loan to fix things, seemingly impossible. The good news is that we have special loans available to address challenging situations and accomplish these goals:

SELECT FCU NEWS AND BENEFITS
Pre-Paid Debit Card Offers Increased Security
If you like to shop online or just take a more secure route when it comes to debit cards, our new pre-paid debit card option may be just what you need. 
 
In addition to limiting access to your bank account which provides an added layer of security, a pre-paid debit card can also help you avoid overdraft fees. Another great benefit is that it can be used as a budgeting tool. Load up the card with your pre-set budget amount for a particular item like eating out and then when the money runs out, you will know you can't spend anymore. These new debit cards also are linked to an app which will allow you to check your balance on the go and transfer money from your savings or checking account to your debit card.
Select FCU prepaid debit cards cost $4.95 for the first money transfer and then only $1.95 per month plus .50 for each transfer after that.
 
For more details or to sign up for a pre-paid debit card, give us a call at (210) 223-6561.
