Financial Fundamentals Blog

Welcome to our financial education blog

When 7 17 Credit Union was founded in 1957, it was with the goal of proactively and innovatively meeting the financial needs of its members. Through the years that purpose has remained, and we have continued to develop the innovative products and services that will help you reach your financial goals. Over the past several months, we have been developing another service with our Member’s financial success in mind, and we are pleased to introduce our Financial Education Blog.

Guided by the credit union philosophy of “people helping people,” Financial Fundamentals will offer helpful tips, articles and ideas crafted to help you confidently and successfully navigate your financial future. The blog will cover topics such as budgeting advice, financial planning for life eventsscam alerts, Credit Union news, and more. We’ll also include valuable information from KOFE (Knowledge of Financial Education), a partner of 7 17 in providing free financial education tools.

Featuring the same responsive design as, the blog is easy to navigate using the topics listed to the right or by date by scrolling through the posts on the blog’s main screen. You can also use the search function on the right of the screen to look for a specific article.
