Start Your Christmas Shopping Early This Year!
Instead of mailing out Christmas Club checks this year, your credit union will deposit your Christmas Club funds directly into your share account.
We will make this deposit on November 1, thus allowing you the ability to begin withdrawing from that date forward. By beginning this new method of
disbursing our Christmas club funds, you will have the benefit of faster access and the ability
to withdraw only the amount you need for your holiday spending.
If the only account you have with Kemba is your Christmas Club account, we will make these funds available to you at no charge. Just call our office
and we will mail you a check for whatever amount you request. We will mail your check(s)
free of charge through the end of December. Your scheduled weekly deposits will
immediately begin going to your Christmas Club account beginning November
2. If you would like to make any changes to your account for next year,
please fill out a form in your break room supply rack and forward it to our office.

Minimum Payment Affects Interest Expense
A handful of credit card issuers have increased minimum payments from 2% to 4% of the balance due. This table shows how minimum
payments affect not only the length of time it will take to pay off your balance, but also the amount of interest you will pay.
Length of time to pay off
7 years, 4 months
3 years, 9 months
Always pay the minimum amount due so you don't incur a late fee and, if
possible, pay more than the minimum. Also, if you don't already have
one, consider trading in the high-interest credit card for a lower-rate card from your credit union.
Assumptions: $2,000 balance; 18% Interest, these calculations also assume you add no more charges to the card.
