Gain Independence

When you move out or start to pay your own way in life, you naturally gain a bit of independence. But it doesn't mean you're on your own. Greylock is here to help with great guidance and online resources about how you can live, spend and save responsibly.

  • Do you spend more than you earn?

    Don't get into debt. Find out how to curb your expenses while socking away savings every month.

    Find a Checking Account
    When you shop for a checking account you want to select one that meets your needs and minimizes costs. Here's what to look for:

    • Free checking – Make sure it's really free!
    • Round Up checking - save while you spend!
    • Get overdraft protection or a Line of Credit to avoid returned check costs.
    • Free Online banking so you can review your accounts anytime you want.

    Pay Yourself First!
    Saving can be easy when it's seamless. The best way to get started is to set up an automatic withdrawal from your account and have it deposited directly into your retirement account. Figure out the amount that works best for your budget. Once you get everything set up, it's automatically done each month without you having to think about it. And you'll be pleased when you receive your statements and see how much you've saved!

    Save with CDs
    Admit it. A music CD is more exciting to buy than a Certificate of Deposit (CD). But, the great thing about a money CD is that you will earn interest with it. CD accounts earn higher rates than savings accounts because you agree to keep the money in the account for a specified period of time, such as 12 months. The longer term CD you choose, the higher the interest rate and the more money you make! Learn more about CDs.

    Save with IRAs
    Save for retirement now? It may seem like a crazy idea when you are young, but saving for retirement now makes the most sense. Starting an IRA at 18 gives you the best opportunity to earn more for later. With an IRA, you earn great interest, but even better, the interest you earn pays you even more money on top of that–that's called compounding interest! Start saving now to have what you need when you are ready to retire. Learn more about IRAs.

    A credit union is the perfect place to start building your own savings. And if you're ready to stop paying rent and start owning your own home, we're here to help first-time homeowners, too.

  • It's not too early to start investing

    The earlier you start investing for your retirement, the sooner you'll have the security to know your golden years won't be made of aluminum.

    What's a 401K?

    A 401k is another great way to save for retirement. Some employers offer 401K plans that you can contribute to. You generally need to work at least a year at a company to be "vested” for employer contribution. When you are eligible, some employers will "match” what you contribute into your 401k, up to a certain amount or percentage. Now, that's wise investing.

  • A bad credit record can get in the way of a lot.
