Wright-Patt Credit Union members: visit to talk finances


Wright-Patt Credit Union is encouraging its members concerned about their finances because of U.S. defense budget spending cuts to contact the credit union to talk about it, said Tracy Fors, vice president of marketing and business development.

“Anytime that there’s going to be a change in income for some period of time, it’s going to affect them,” Fors said.

And when it comes to finances, the sooner problems can be addressed, the better the outcomes.

“Each situation is going to be unique and different, so it’s not one size fits all,” Fors said.

The credit union offers programs including financial planning and counseling, refinancing, or skip-a-payment programs, but options for individual member customers depend on their situations and eligibility, she said.

Fairborn-based Wright-Patt Credit Union is Ohio’s largest credit union with $2.5 billion in assets and approximately 240,000 members. Some branch offices are located at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.

The credit union is organizing in partnership with Air Force base officials information fairs later this month.
