Getting a mortgage should be simple; however, that is rarely the case. The U.S. economy has significantly improved over the past few years, and what was once a buyer's market is shifting into a seller’s favor.

Simpler way to manage your money – Police FCU Online Bill Pay
Online Bill Pay helps keep your finances in order


It seems like days are getting shorter while to-do lists are getting longer and budgets are getting more and more squeezed. With both time and money in short supply, it’s easy to overlook bills and pay them late, thereby incurring the wrath of lenders and service providers that reward your lateness with giant fees or interest rate hikes that don’t mix well with an already-tight budget...


CO-OP Network ATMs save you from surcharge fees
You shouldn’t have to spend your money to get your money


Why pay banks $3 when you can get your money for free?  Using the wrong bank ATM often means paying a surcharge both coming and going.

ATM surcharge fees have reached the highest rates ever. The average surcharge rate is $1.97, with $2 fee being the most common and some banks that are in the $3 threshold...



Halloween Candy Alternatives
Bypass the sugar for fun, colorful items kids (and parents) will love


Most any kid will say they want as much candy as they can round up when they knock on neighbor’s doors on Halloween. But getting overloaded with sugar isn’t the best plan. Some dentists around the country even have buyback programs where they offer prizes and other items for kids who turn in their Halloween candy stash. If you’re looking for some creative alternatives to passing out the sweet stuff, we have some ideas for you.


Five Tips for Sustainable Eating
Eat healthier by supporting locally grown products


Sustainable eating means eating whole foods that come from a local source. Most sustainable foods do not have labels and do not come in a box. In addition, they are foods that minimize harm to the environment during the growth and production process. Locally grown fruits and vegetables, as well as protein from animals that are raised in a humane way by independent farmers, are considered sustainable foods.
