College Financing

July 17th, 2014

College_477961511MODNow that you’ve been accepted the fun begins…how are you going to pay for college?

Start with some local research. There are quite a few organizations right within your hometown that could be looking to give you money for school. That’s right, GIVE YOU money! Many of them have scholarship programs in place and are awaiting applicants just like you.

Check your Kiwanis, Rotary, anchor businesses and larger organizations. Also some clubs and trade organizations give scholarships to those studying in a specific field. Just ask, you’d be surprised at what you may find.

Once you’ve applied for State and Federal loans, see what you’ll need to supplement. There are always options. It may help to co-sign a loan with a parent to get a better rate and help build your credit.

Check out these helpful links below and when you’re ready, we’re happy to help with the Smart Option Student Loan® by Sallie Mae® right here at First Source.

What is Only One Checking?

June 3rd, 2014

76754637Quite simply, it’s the only account you’ll ever need.

Only One Checking is the checking account offered at First Source. It is aptly titled as such, as we offer just one account and you use it however you like best. Depending on how you use it, you get rewarded as well. Other financial institutions will offer promos like getting $100 for opening an account. If you look at the fine print, you usually have to sign up for direct deposit in order to get that money. Others offer no fees, but you often have to sign up for e-statements and auto bill pay, etc. Or they offer a few different accounts but each have stipulations to qualify for and the choices can be confusing, even overwhelming depending on how many they offer.

We know that your checking account should just be there for you, ready when you need it. You shouldn’t have to think about it. That’s why we’ve stripped it down and made it simple.

Only One Checking at its basic level has no stipulations. If you’d like a plain old checking account, this is for you. However, if you’d like to get a little more out of it, you can be rewarded as you go. For example, if you have a higher monthly balance, your account can earn tiered dividends. If you are a frequent debit card user, you can access travel perks, online coupons and monthly rebates.

The account is set up to be your main hub. Money comes in (via direct payroll deposit if you choose), and then money goes out as you need and as you’d prefer. You can write paper checks, or sign up for auto bill pay. And with our One Card debt card, powered by VISA® you can swipe it like a credit card but manage the funds through your Only One account. You have access to over 28,000 nationwide surcharge-free ATMs and our mobile app.

It truly is everything you need, all in one place.

Congrats to Martina Jory and the Leadership Mohawk Valley Class of 2014

May 14th, 2014

Congratulations to all of the Class of 2014 LMV Graduates including our own Martina Jory! Martina took a moment to tell us what being a part of LMV meant to her:

joryLeadership Mohawk Valley was a wonderful experience. My team and I had the opportunity to assist MAMI (Multicultural Association of Medical Interpreters). MAMI provides interpretation and translation services for refugees and immigrants and their providers in the medical, legal, and social service fields. The focus of our project was to assist in developing a marketing plan to help them prepare and execute their vision for the future. The program and the project served as an excellent chance to learn about the great community we live in. It gave me the desire to try and make a difference for all those who call the Mohawk Valley home.
