purchase responsibly

As a Corpsmember you have undoubtedly received education about personal financial planning. The need to save for a car purchase, secure housing, and job seeking is most vital to a young person.

Establishing credit is an important step in the financial process of becoming an adult. Good-to-excellent credit allows you to purchase a car and buy a home, among other things. One way to establish credit is to open savings and checking accounts at an institution of your choice that has convenient access to where you live and offers the services that you want. Most banks and credit unions will work with young adults to guide you in the right financial direction and educate you in establishing good credit for your future. 

We at onthegrade.com encourage you to save for your future and purchase responsibly.
