Golden 1 Offers 8 Tips to Increase Identity and Financial Protection

As consumers increasingly rely on mobile and online banking tools, it’s easy to fall prey to identity thieves seeking to steal financial information.

Approximately 17.6 million people averaged a loss of $1,343 to identity thieves in 2014, with 86 percent of instances involving a victim’s existing accounts rather than newly created ones.[1].

April is Financial Literacy Month, and part of being financially literate is ensuring your financial information is secure. There are several steps consumers can take to mitigate crime and ward off identity thieves, both on and offline.

1.     Keep your computer hardware and software up to date. Make sure your computer’s operating system has all the necessary antivirus updates and upgrades. This includes Wi-Fi and broadband connections.

It’s Not Too Late to Add to Your 2015 Tax Deductions & Contribute to Retirement at the Same Time

It’s Not Too Late to Add to Your 2015 Tax Deductions & Contribute to Retirement at the Same Time

By Michael D. Lee, CPA, PFS, Financial Education Manager, Golden 1 Credit Union

April is National Financial Literacy Month, and what better way to demonstrate financial literacy than by adopting a few smart behaviors that could save money on your 2015 tax bill and set the blueprint for a solid retirement?

More than 60 percent of Americans have less than $1,000 in savings and nearly half deposit less than 5 percent of their incomes into longer-term savings. What that means is the vast majority of Americans are significantly unprepared for unexpected financial burdens in the present, let alone setting themselves up to finance their retirement. With fewer U.S. companies offering 401(k) or matching retirement plans, there has never been a more critical time to open a self-directed retirement account that offers current and future tax benefits.
