IYour credit union has a range of sav­ings in­stru­ments into which you can de­posit your money at at­trac­tive, com­pet­i­tive in­ter­est rates. These sav­ings in­stru­ments in­clude share ac­counts, reg­u­lar sav­ings ac­counts, term de­posits and Golden Har­vest sav­ings ac­counts. Ex­cel­lent in­vest­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties are also avail­able at the Credit Union Fund Man­age­ment Com­pany.

It’s also a good time for credit union mem­bers to buy into the Fam­ily In­dem­nity Plan and en­sure that they have money in place for fi­nal ex­penses for their fam­ily. Con­tact your credit union and ask about these and other prod­ucts and ser­vices.

IN 2017, the Credit Union Move­ment will cel­e­brate 75 years since the in­tro­duc­tion of this group of co-op­er­a­tive fi­nan­cial in­sti­tu­tions to Ja­maica. The Ja­maica Co-op­er­a­tive Credit Union League (JCCUL), the trade as­so­ci­a­tion for the move­ment, will also cel­e­brate 75 years of ser­vice to credit unions. Both mile­stones are wor­thy of cel­e­bra­tion, and credit unions and JCCUL will do so dur­ing 2017 with a num­ber of ac­tiv­i­ties.

These com­mem­o­ra­tive ac­tiv­i­ties will be launched at a carol ser­vice on De­cem­ber 15, 2016, and will be re­garded as the first ac­tiv­ity for the cel­e­bra­tion of the 75th an­niver­sary.

The Co­ral Ser­vice will be held at the Web­ster Memo­rial Church on Half­Way Tree Road in Kingston, com­menc­ing at 5:30 p.m. Every­one is in­vited to at­tend and it prom­ises to be a carol ser­vice with a dif­fer­ence. The line-up of mu­sic tal­ents will be im­pres­sive and par­tic­i­pants can ex­pect to en­joy tra­di­tional as well as con­tem­po­rary Christ­mas songs/mu­sic.

Credit union vol­un­teers, staff and mem­bers from all credit unions across Ja­maica are be­ing in­vited to share in this cel­e­bra­tion of the longevity of the move­ment and to give thanks for its 75 years of ex­is­tence.

In com­mem­o­rat­ing the 75th an­niver­sary, the move­ment is ex­pect­ing to pay homage to Fa­ther John P. Sul­li­van, the founder of the Jamaican move­ment, and also to recog­nise those who con­trib­uted to the growth and de­vel­op­ment of the move­ment over its 75 years.

At the carol ser­vice, de­tails of the ac­tiv­i­ties will be an­nounced.
