A Frontwave solar loan can make it possible.

Third Quarter 2019

Starting in 2020, the tax credit decreases. Why leave money on the table? If you’re thinking about solar – now’s the time to get it done! Imagine if you utilized those savings to add a little extra to your mortgage payment each month. You’ll increase your equity and pay off your mortgage years earlier. Speaking of mortgages, we’ve created a First Time Home Buyer Program and added fixed and variable rate VA Loans as well as no closing cost 5/5 Adjustable Rate Mortgages to our suite of real estate products. I know how frustrating it can be waiting for your loan to get funded. So we focused on generating operational efficiencies and are now closing nearly every mortgage related loan in less than 30 days! At Frontwave Credit Union, you’re going to get great rates, great products and speed! Lastly, we are fanatical about financial education! We believe that we have an obligation to give back to our communities and providing everyone with free, non-solicitous financial education is good for the individual and good for the community! I mean, let’s face it… How much better off would we all be if we simply made sound financial decisions. In addition to the hundreds of classes we do on all of the Marine bases we serve, we also offer classes to the community at large at our headquarters building in Oceanside and at our branch in Wildomar. Check out our website for a complete list of all the available classes – absolutely free – even the pizza! You don’t have to be a Member to attend. So bring a friend! Bring all your friends! How cool is that? Hanging out with your buddies, learning about retirement planning and wolfing down some great pizza? Knowledge is power! Dream Big! We Got You!

Bill Birnie, President/CEO OMG! I was beginning to think that June Gloom would never go away! Summer is finally here! How can you not love summer? The beach, barbeques in the back yard and all sorts of activities you can do on glorious sunny days. That’s another reason I love summer. Sunny days save me money – lots of money. OK, so here’s the deal… I bought my house right at the end of 2009. Everything in the house is electric – even the water heater. The average electric bill for the previous owner was $650 a month! It didn’t take me long to move into action and our new solar energy system was put into service in May 2010. Since that date, in total, I have paid less than $600 for electricity. Through the savings of nearly $650 each and every month, my solar energy system has paid for itself in just 9 years! BTW, did you know we do Solar Loans? We offer great rates, exceptional service and we get it done fast. This is the last year you can receive a 30% tax credit for a new solar energy system. Notes from the CEO

Helping Your Parents Manage Financial Tasks

Provided by Kathy L. Chesney, ChFC, CLU

Worldwide, the number of people aged 60 and older is growing. By 2050, this demographic will be more than twice as large as it was in 2015.¹ Some of these seniors could face a financial test. Will they be able to look after their investments or financial matters at age 80 or 90 with the same level of scrutiny they exercised earlier in life? Your parents may be facing such a challenge. If you sense that they are not quite up to it, then a conversation about financial issues could be in order. If you need to have this kind of talk with your parents, it is best to proceed gently, while acknowledging some potential risks that may heighten if the status quo persists. Start by talking about your own financial matters or investments. Ask your parents for their thoughts on this-or-that topic – an upcoming car purchase, a type of insurance coverage or investment, or their approach to saving or investing when they were your age. Start this conversation while you do something else together, something relaxed or pleasurable. A one-on-one conversation is best, with an informal tone. A formal discussion involving multiple family members might come across like some kind of financial intervention and may not be appreciated. Alternately, if you have made or updated a will or created a power of attorney, you can talk about your decision to do so and ask your parent if

they have either of these items. That could lead to a conversation about family wealth or eldercare. Helpful and gentle suggestions can follow. If your parents are neglecting to open account statements, you can offer to help monitor their accounts by asking to register with the bank or investment custodian, so that you may receive copies of these documents. If you sense bills are past due, you can suggest setting up automated payments, referencing how useful they have been in your own financial life. There can be resistance to such suggestions, of course. One possible way to counter that resistance is by expressing how much you care about their financial well-being, their wishes, and their quality of life. How would they feel, for example, if a financial error or oversight they made resulted in more income tax or a decline in the value of their accounts? By treating your parent with love and respect and communicating openly, you can let them know that you are ready to provide the help needed during this time of life.
