Automate Your Financial Life

You can automate your finances to make things more convenient and instantly accessible all the time.

Online banking and bill paying are good options that provide you the ability to make payments directly from you bank account and to monitor your accounts anytime you want. Of course, protect your passwords! Don’t fall for a “phishing” scam where a fraudster will send you an email that looks like it’s from your bank or credit union, but is actually a fraudulent attempt to get your account information. Directly contact your bank for official matters.

It is important you set aside time every week or month to review your accounts and make sure you haven’t been overcharged. If you don’t, the bank will probably tell you that they don’t have to make corrections if you didn’t complain about errors in a timely way. Remember, it may take time for a certain transaction to post (show) on your account.
