April is National Financial Literacy Month! Now is the Time to Improve Your Financial Wellness
Merck Employees Federal Credit Union is committed to improving the Financial Wellness of our members and their families. April is National Financial Literacy Month and an excellent opportunity to focus on your Financial Wellness. Just as it is vital to maintain our physical health, being financially fit is critical to overall wellness.
We invite you to engage with us during National Financial Literacy Month and get better educated on financial issues that affect you! Merck Employees Federal Credit Union can assist in a variety of ways.
Our online Financial Wellness Center is an interactive online platform of financial education modules covering a wide variety of financial topics. From basic budgeting and saving, to planning for retirement and understanding taxes, this platform can help improve your financial IQ!

Did you know that Merck Employees FCU offers one of the highest savings rates in the country? Saving even a small amount each month can go a long way on your path to financial wellness.

Being bogged down with high-interest rate loans can put a serious dent in your Financial Wellness. Merck Employees FCU offers a wide variety of low-interest loans that can lessen your monthly debt. We encourage you as part of Financial Wellness month to contact our loan department to see how the credit union may be able to help lower your monthly borrowing cost. We also encourage members to consider all lending options before borrowing from the valuable retirement funds in their 401K.
Now is a great time to get educated on Retirement Planning. Our Financial Wellness Center offers a number of modules to take the mystery out of saving for retirement.
