Member Stories: Christine C.

Elementary school teacher Christine C. called SchoolsFirst FCU with a question about her checking account—by the end of the call she saved money by refinancing her car.

Money was a little tight at the time, so Christine was grateful to learn how much she would save by refinancing her loan with the Credit Union. The monthly savings, plus getting 90 days of no payments1, helped Christine and her family get through a tough time. She’s been truly thankful and loves being a SchoolsFirst FCU Member.

“It was an answer to prayer and I was just so grateful to SchoolsFirst FCU. You have made a huge difference in my life.”

  1. First payment is due by the 90th day after funding. Finance charges begin to accrue immediately and are repaid over the life of the loan. As a result, you may pay higher total finance charges on the loan than if payments began earlier.
