First and foremost, the ownership of a credit union differentiates it from other types of financial institutions. Rather than a for-profit organization run by a paid board of directors who report to shareholders, a credit union is a not-for-profit financial cooperative. That means you are the owners. And our volunteer board of directors — who you vote for — work to ensure that the credit union continues to meet the needs of all its member-owners.

These days, the “American Dream” is no longer a universal idea; it means different things to different people. In previous decades, the American Dream meant doing better than your parents, which can include buying a home. But today, owning property isn’t necessarily everyone’s immediate goal. During the Great Recession, between 2007 and 2014, 7.3 million consumers lost their homes, according to RealtyTrac. With so many families affected by this loss, it is no surprise that in recent years the home ownership rate has fallen from 69 percent in the early 2000s to 63.7 percent at the beginning of 2015, according to the Washington Post. As home ownership has declined, the 2010s are on track to see the fastest growth in renters in history.

We make five-year life plans, savings plans, and even dinner plans, but what about the plan for when the unthinkable happens and we are no longer here to care for our families? Nationally, only 42 percent of adults in this country have estate planning documents such as a will or living trust, according to a Caring.com survey. The numbers in Ohio are slightly more encouraging; with 57 percent saying they have a will in place stipulating who will care for their children in the event of the parents’ death, according to results from the Ohio Credit Union League’s 2017 Consumer Survey.
