Internet-Based Services are Worthknowing.com
With the growing demand for online Member Service options, some
credit unions are developing new initiatives that reach beyond expectations.
For example, Pennsylvania
State Employees Credit Union is using an innovative new Internet-based
service that allows its members to retrieve their online credit
bureau reports at no cost once every 90 days. The initiative, known
as “Worthknowing.com”, has been live since the spring
and can be found on PSECU’s main web site, www.psecu.com.
Many economists consider the housing market to be the saving
grace of an otherwise troublesome economy, as the number of homeowners
continues to grow, along with home purchase prices. As Chief Economist
and co-founder of Economy.com, Dr. Mark Zandi said at a recent FDIC
conference, “Thank God for the housing market, otherwise we’d
be in a real mess.” The purpose of the conference, which was
took place in Washington D.C. on November 15 and was co-sponsored
by the National Association of Business Economics, was to address
growing concerns that the success enjoyed by the housing market
may actually be a bubble, poised to burst in coming months.
