Ready to take action?

So what's the first step? EDUCATE & PLAN!!


Don't know where to start? Texas Bay has your back! We are happy to offer our members FREE Financial Wellness Checkups as your loyal financial partner. Let us guide you in what the best option for YOU is. Just like preparing to go off to college you have to increase your knowledge and create a plan on how to reach your goals. There are 3 things to create a solid foundation for your finances.
 

1. Budget & Save!

Create your budget that is manageable and build savings into it.  Whether you have a steady paycheck or you get paid for walking the neighborhood dogs, plan to save a certain % every time. 

Think you have more loans than you can handle? Don't know how to budget? Check out our Student Loan Calculator to help you figure out how much you can save after each monthly expense.

2. Watch Your Debt

Between student loans and credit cards, if you don't understand your debt, interest rates, payment schedules versus the amount of money you have coming in to pay your debts, you can get turned upside down very quickly. Remember, what you borrow today, you have to pay back tomorrow. Come by one of our branches today and sit with a Financial Team Member to get a FREE consultation on how to better manage your finances. Adulting is hard, but banking doesn't have to be. 

3. Understand Your Credit

Credit Scores? Test Scores? Are they the same? Yes! The higher your credit score is the better you are at adulting! Your credit score helps when deciding the next milestone of your life: a new car, a new apartment, or even a new house. Start building your credit now, so you can enjoy the perks later.

Credit Scores also determine how much you will pay for things, including your cell phone! Understanding your credit and building your credit score will pay off dividends in the future.

Remember, you can always call or visit a Texas Bay branch to have a one-on-one meeting with a Financial Team Member to gain knowledge and insight on how to build your budget, how to limit your debt and how to build your credit.  They will help create a solution to get you on the right path for success.

Busy? Can't come in? Send a text to Your Financial Partner! It's as easy as saying hello! Adulting is hard. Banking doesn't have to be. 



We are also happy to provide you with resources and videos (English and Spanish) to provide you with more Money Management tips and advice geared specifically to you, our youth!  You can locate these right here on our website. For more information about our financial partners for young adults, contact us today.
