Attention Teachers: Introducing Classroom Cats

We are excited to announce the Classroom Cats program presented by the Arizona KidCats Club and Hughes Federal Credit Union. Through this K-8 grade program, teachers will be able to sign up to become a member for FREE. Once a member, teachers will receive a poster for their classroom, educational materials, a newsletter, exclusive contests and opportunities. Educational materials include reading comprehension, puzzles and more to come!  

Through the K-8 Classroom Cats program, teachers will also gain the opportunity to sign up for Arizona Athletics' new Pen Pal Program. Through this exclusive program, classrooms will write letters to a student-athlete who will then correspond with the classroom throughout a semester. Students will gain the opportunity to develop a connection with an older, positive role model while improving their reading and writing skills. This is also a great experience to promote fitness, emphasize the importance of academic success and help students create goals of higher education.

Building a Successful Foundation for Young Adults

When age 18 rolls around, certain financial needs become very important, like funding for college or a car. Hughes Federal Credit Union knows how to start our members ages 18 to 25 on the right foot with resources and information.

Financial Independence

With our free interest-earning checking you'll enjoy no minimum balance, no per-check fees, no monthly fees and earn a competitive rate on your balance. Enjoy ATM access worldwide. Visa® debit cards are available for qualifying members. Enroll in our free Online Banking, Mobile Banking, eStatement and Bill Pay.

Graduating and Planning for College

Sign up for GradFunds to make it easy for family and friends to give the gift of cash. Make sure you can access cash while you're at school with our Prepaid Reloadable Visa® Cards are ideal for students. Use them anywhere Visa is accepted!

Your First Job

There are some important and simple steps to take once you start your first job. One is to sign up for direct deposit. Check to see if your employer offers this, and if so, sign up with us. When payday rolls around, your check will be automatically deposited into your account.

Another important step is to start saving. The easiest way is to determine a specific amount to be taken from your checking account and put into savings at the same time each week or month. Use our No Excuse Savings program to get started. Another way you can start building your savings early is by opening a You Name It Savings, or a Holiday Club Account.

To earn a higher rate on your savings, consider a High Yield Savings or a Term Share Account.
