#ReduceDebt, #PayingDownDebtIsSaving, #ASW2021


Even though it doesn’t sound like it has anything to do with saving, at Global Credit Union we recognize that paying down debt is SAVING! By actively reducing your debt, you’re saving on interest, avoiding late fees and maintaining or even increasing your credit score. That is why we’ll focus on the importance of paying down debt and why it should be acknowledged and celebrated as a form of saving and a component of your financial plan. Join us as we #ReduceDebt with tips, tools, and resources that will aid you in successfully reducing your debt.

To get started:

  1. Step into financial action by taking the America Saves pledge or re-pledging.
  2. Reach out to a Global Credit Union representative to set-up automatic (realistic) reoccurring transfers.
  3. Watch in amazement as your debt dwindles!


If you’re feeling discouraged (and quite frankly a little lost), worry not! With planning, discipline, patience and help from a Global Credit Union advisor, you can reduce your debts.
