Members’ Story – Vincent and Dorene S.

Vincent, an American Sign language (ASL) Elementary School Teacher, has been a Member since 1997 and loves the products he has with SchoolsFirst FCU. When Vincent and his wife, Dorene, found themselves in a difficult situation, they turned to their Credit Union for help.“We needed to consolidate all our debt into a personal loan. SchoolsFirst FCU said it wasn’t a problem.”

Now, Vincent uses a personal loan during the summer months when he doesn’t receive a paycheck to help bridge the gap. “SchoolsFirst FCU has a lot to offer and they have the lowest interest rates.” As a teacher and a Member, he appreciates what SchoolsFirst FCU does for the community of educators and those that work in the education system. “They’re great about letting teachers know what is available to us.” Vincent and Dorene are also big fans of the Payroll Savings Loan. Receiving just one paycheck a month, Vincent has learned to stretch his paycheck and pay the most important bills first. When the funds aren’t enough, the Payroll Savings Loan gives him the extra funds needed until his next paycheck.

“SchoolsFirst FCU has been such a blessing to our family. I would never change to any other institution.”
