With the New Year upon us, it’s time again to look back on the credit union’s accomplishments in 2019. I am happy to report that our strategy over the past year has brought continued success to Nutmeg and positioned us for even more growth in 2020.
If you are a frequent reader of my blog, then I am sure you know all about our dedication to the community. It is one of my favorite areas of the credit union’s mission and always gives us a sense of pride whenever we help make a difference. With the holiday season now in full effect, it is an important time to remember our communities and do our best to give back. I’d like to take a moment to talk about what we’re doing for the holiday season and how you can show your support.
With Black Friday and the holiday shopping season coming soon, I’d like to remind you all about the importance of staying safe and keeping your information protected. Shopping during the holidays can be a very exciting time, but can also leave you vulnerable to identity theft and fraud. To make sure we all enjoy this time of the year, I want to offer my own advice and information on keeping your personal data protected.
If you have been following the financial news, you have probably heard about the possibility of the economy experiencing a recession. Whether this occurs sooner or later and whether the recession is short-term or long-term, now is a good time for a reminder about the ways Nutmeg can help you stay financially prepared.
For this blog post, I wanted to take some time to talk about a topic that is very important to me and all of us at Nutmeg. As you may have heard, in 2020 there may be significant budget cuts to funding for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and National Institute on Aging (NIA). These organizations play a key role in researching the cure and prevention of diseases. One important area impacted is research related to Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States, and I’m sure that you or someone you know has experienced its effects in some way.
