North Central Area Credit Union, with support of the Michigan Credit Union Foundation, has paired up with Acting Up Theatre Company to provide interactive financial literacy to 3rd and 4th grade students in three local schools. Students in Grayling and Houghton Lake have already performed plays that they wrote about their local economies, financial literacy, and credit union history and philosophy. Next up, Roscommon Elementary will participate in the program during National Credit Union Youth Month. Stay tuned for details!

North Central has received two reports of a caller saying they are from NCACU and that their card has been frozen for fraudulent purposes. The caller asks the recipient to confirm their card number and PIN. Remember—WE WILL NEVER CALL YOU AND ASK FOR YOUR CARD NUMBER OR PIN. Please do NOT give out your information. If you already have, please call us or after hours call the number on the back of your card and close the account immediately. You can always detect fraud when they ask you to give your account number. WE HAVE YOUR ACCOUNT number. Tis the season! Be diligent in fraud prevention!!
Do you ever wonder which is faster? NCACU offers two solutions for after hours deposits–our Night Deposit Box located at each building (generally near the drive thru) or you can also deposit funds through the ATM system. If you are looking for the fastest deposit to your account–use the Night Deposit Box. Those deposits are collected each day at opening and post right away. ATM deposits require a 48 hour hold. Remember, any time you deposit using one of the after hour methods–always use an envelope and include your account number and the amount of the deposit.
Don’t forget to take NCACU with you on the run! You have access to your accounts 24-7 with Mobile Banking, Text Alerts, and Online Banking. Click on the Go Mobile tab inside It’s Me 247 for more information!

Are you struggling to make ends meet? You can now find a simple budget form under our Resources tab or click here. Budgeting takes time, patience and practice. The first step is often recognizing how you spend your money and then showing it in the correct category of the budget. If you are not completely honest with yourself, a budget will not work. Download our form, fill it out as best you can then track your spending for a month and fill it out again. You may be surprised at how quickly little expenses like lunch out, an afternoon coffee or school supplies can quickly add up and knock your budget off-balance. Work your budget for a few months and if you can’t get it to balance, then it might be time to call a credit counselor.
