VACAVILLE, Calif. -- Travis Credit Union is helping to make it easier for its military members to handle their finances overseas with its recently launched deployment guide.
Available on its Web site www.traviscu.org, the deployment guide entitled, Financial Preparations Before Deployment, describes services to help members deal with their accounts; options for designating a financial helper while members are deployed; and steps to take before, during and after a deployment.
In addition, the brochure covers Powers of Attorney and joint account holders, as well as online banking products such as bill pay and e-statements. It also explains use of the TCU call center and secure email through online banking. Automatic deposits and automatic withdrawal are also discussed to illustrate the ease of automated TCU loan payments.
"Travis Credit Union wants to maintain contact with military members, even when deployed, to help them manage their accounts," said Patsy Van Ouwerkerk, president/CEO of Travis Credit Union. "Educating our members and making deployment easier helps our military members achieve the financial freedom they work so hard for. We salute our men and women in uniform and thank them for their service at home and abroad."
