A Message from Heather Hickman,

Indian River and South Brevard
Space Coast Credit Union is a financial cooperative. We want you, the member-owners, to know more about how the credit union works, and how you and your fellow members can contribute to making it stronger so you can help keep deposit rates high, loan rates low, and continue to get more free services than you would receive at a bank.
The most popular services SCCU provides are debit cards and checking accounts. In previous Connections newsletters, we have emphasized the benefits you get when you use your SCCU debit card for purchases and payments – like rewards and fraud protection.
But there’s a “behind the scenes” benefit to using your SCCU debit card. Each time a member uses the card to make a payment or purchase, the credit union earns transaction income from the businesses that process those transactions. This income helps to pay for the cost of maintaining the checking account, and other costs of operating the credit union.

11th Annual Great Brevard Duck Race for Crosswinds Youth Services!
Beginning March 12, Crosswinds supporters and duck fans from around the county can purchase their duck ‘adoption’ papers at SCCU’s Brevard Branches for only $5.00 each. These ducks will race to the finish line during the Indian River Festival on April 19, 2009, and the winners will take home one of numerous fabulous prizes.
The Great Brevard Duck race is a fundraiser to raise money for Crosswinds Youth Services. For over 30 years, Crosswinds has been dedicated to assisting young people who have experienced great challenges, such as abuse and neglect, family instability, and other crisis situations.

There's Still Time:
You still have time to make a contribution to your IRA account for the 2008 tax year. Contributions will be accepted at any SCCU branch though April 15, 2009.
Individual Retirement Accounts, or IRAs, are one of the best ways to prepare for retirement and save on taxes. All IRA accounts are federally insured by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) up to $250,000.
Don’t have an IRA? Don’t wait! You must open (and fund) an account by April 15, 2009 for the 2008 tax cycle. Stop by any SCCU branch for more information, including the various types of IRA accounts available and applicable tax guidelines.
