[custom_frame_left][/custom_frame_left]What do you picture when you imagine your ideal vacation? Are you relaxing on the beach? Skiing in the mountains? Touring historical sites? Whatever your dream trip, one thing is certain: You will need money to pay for it!
Vacations – especially a dream vacation – aren’t cheap. It may seem unrealistic to you now. But SECU has the perfect solution. By joining the SECU vacation club you can save money for your vacation over time. Then, when the time comes to book your trip you’ll be ready to pay and enjoy your vacation!
Here’s how it works: SECU’s Vacation Club allows you to set aside a certain amount of money from each paycheck. For example, if you get paid bi-weekly and put aside $50 from every paycheck, you could save $1,950 in one year. The best way to save up the right amount of money for your dream trip is to figure out the cost of your trip then divide it by the number of months you have left to save. Money in your Vacation Club account will start earning interest when your account reaches $300. By setting up a direct deposit or an automatic transfer you’ll build up your savings without even thinking about it.
We also realize that emergencies happen and at some point you may have to use that money for something other than your vacation. You can pull the money out of your Vacation Club account up to 6 times a year without a penalty.
You can apply online for a Vacation Club account by visiting this site: https://www.secunm.org/applications/open-an-account.html?page=32649&type=page&id=32649&step=k_2175132. The process will only take about seven minutes. You will need the following information:
- Driver’s license or State ID
- Previous home address (if you have lived at your home address less than 2 years)
- U.S. Social Security number
- U.S. checking or savings account to fund the account
SECU will help send you on your much-needed getaway with no worries about how you’ll pay for it. Before you know you it, you will be on your way to your dream vacation!
