Cost of Being Parents

$241,000 to raise a child today. Want to see how that breaks down? Click here.

Holiday Closing

GKCU offices will be closed Monday, Sept. 1 in observance of the Labor Day holiday.

Financial Communication is Key

We love to share good news about our jobs, accomplishments at our hobbies and accolades for our kids, but
how often do we talk with our families about our financial goals and retirement plans. It is probably one
of the most important conversations you can have but yet few of us do it. GKCU encourages you to 
take every opportunity to have "teachable moments" about your finances; no matter if teaching your kids
the difference between needs and wants, what a credit card is or even plans for retirement.

In this day and age of answers at your fingertips delivered in the blink of an eye, there are numerous
resources to help you budget, and even talk about financial topics. If you need additional help, ask a GKCU
employee next time you're in a branch.
