401(k) Fees: Know What You’re Paying, What You’re Getting
Check out this scenario laid out by the U.S. Employee Benefits Security Administration: For someone with 35 years until retirement and a 401(k) plan valued at $25,000, fees can make a big difference. If the investments in such an account return 7% annually and fees are 0.5% of all plan assets, that 401(k) plan will grow to $227,000 by the time the recipient hits retirement age—even if the recipient doesn't drop a single additional dime into the plan. But what if the 401(k) plan fees were 1.5% instead of 0.5%? Then the retirement landscape isn't so bright. Instead of $227,000, the plan participant would only earn $163,000.

Don’t Let Fees Take Their Toll
Consumers are willing to pay for convenient financial services, such as automated teller machine use. But how much is too much? Some fees finance the research and development of future products and services. Still other fees are used to modify negative behaviors, such as routinely writing checks against nonexistent funds. But when it comes to fees, you can trace the difference between how many and how much to one major philosophical difference in the way credit unions and banks operate. Banks are for-profit institutions: The profit motive influences the number and size of their fees. Credit unions are not-for-profit financial cooperatives. Because there's no pressure from profit-minded stockholders, Priority First charges fees to enable us to provide more convenient and useful services for our members. That explains why credit unions usually charge fewer and lower fees than banks. How much can members save just by using a credit union share draft...
Important Information Regarding the Heartbleed Bug
Important Information Regarding the Heartbleed Bug On April 7, 2014, a security vulnerability named the Heartbleed Bug was identified in Open SSL, software widely used to provide communication security on the Internet, including email and virtual private networks (VPN).  The Heartbleed Bug could allow anyone on the Internet to read the memory of the systems protected by vulnerable versions of the OpenSSL software.  Attackers could eavesdrop on communications, steal data, and impersonate services and users. In response to the discovery of the Heartbleed Bug, Priority First FCU reviewed its systems and determined there is no vulnerability since we do not use the OpenSSL software While Priority First online systems are not impacted by this vulnerability, we want to take this opportunity to remind our members of additional steps you can take to protect your online information: Passwords
