Tax Refunds

2015TaxRefundWhat Ohioans Plan To Do With Their Tax Refunds!

What would you do if you received an extra paycheck this month? For Ohioans lucky enough to receive one, a tax refund can be exactly that. With 49.2 percent of individuals in Ohio getting about the same or larger returns this year than last, many depleted “rainy day” fund and empty vacation jars will be replenished.

The majority of Ohioans (53.2 percent) expecting a refund will use the money to pay down existing debt, according to the Ohio Credit Union League’s 2015 Consumer Survey. Meanwhile 46.8 percent will invest in a savings program. Only 4.6 percent are planning to make a major purchase, and a very small percentage will use it start a new business.

With many deciding to save and pay down debt, where do you start?

  • Replenish “rainy day” funds. Putting money aside helps manage the unimaginable. Building up a “rainy day” savings account allows for a little cushion when things such as car repairs or home maintenance projects arise.
  • Pay the high-interest balance first. Before you make a large payment on a credit card or loan balance, look to see which has the highest interest rate and will give you the greatest relief to your monthly expenses/payments.
  • Invest in your future. Putting additional funds in your retirement account can have long term benefits.
  • Invest in the next six months. Certificates of deposit aren’t yielding much return these days, but are still a safe short-term investment with a moderate interest rate and guaranteed return.
  • Look to a credit union for help. Credit unions offer many avenues to help people invest in their future well-being. Most offer long and short investment options, as well as several savings programs to help you watch your money grow.

Quest Federal Credit Union is happy to provide guidance to those looking for a better choice to pay down debt, choose the best savings vehicle, or use their tax refund in other ways. Quest’s Financial Fitness program is available to all. Through the Financial Fitness program, Quest employees are available to sit down with member/owners to provide guidance in the areas of budgeting, fiscal responsibility, debt-reduction, and credit store restoration. Make an investment today and schedule an appointment with the Quest Financial Fitness team!

From the CEO – January 2015

From the CEO’s Desk

Hello, my name is Matt Jennings and I am the CEO of Quest Federal Credit Union.

2014 proved to be another very strong year in areas of membership and loan growth as well as overall financial performance for Quest. Membership grew by 4%, loans grew at a very brisk pace of 18% fueled by strong Ag lending, auto and real estate mortgages, taking our Loans/Shares Ratio to a robust 73%, up from 61% at year-end 2013. Our Net Worth grew by 0.89% ending the year at 10.04%. Return on Average Assets or ROA ended the year at 0.96% which is on target for our annual budget and achieves the correct balance between income and expense for Quest. Year end 2014 assets were steady for the year, as expected, ending at $86.8 million.

For more detailed information, we invite you to attend our Annual Member/Owner Meeting on March 21st, 8:30am at the Plaza Inn in Mt. Victory. If you are unable to attend, keep an eye on our website and we will provide our Annual Report very soon.

In closing, we thank our member/owners for their continued patronage. The financial performance that we achieved in 2014 is thanks to your support and we look forward to expanding our relationship with you, our member/owners into 2015 and beyond! I wish you all the best in this New Year and I welcome any comments, suggestions or questions from our member/owners. I can be reached by calling the Main Office or via email at mjennings@questfcu.com. Thank you for your loyal patronage to Quest and I challenge you to Explore the Possibilities!
