Use the funds however you wish; home improvements, family vacation, education expenses, paying off credit cards with high interest rates, or consolidating all of your high-rate debts into one loan with a low interest rate. If you have an existing home equity loan that is at least 12 months old, let ATFCU refinance your loan and save you money!

Social media safety tips
We have expanded our presence on social media channels like Facebook and Twitter, offering our members the opportunity to learn good financial habits. We also feel that it is important to educate our members about good social media habits. Here are some tips from Consumer Reports to remind you how to be safe while being social:
Monitor a child's account. Parents should join their children's circle of friends on Facebook and/or keep tabs on them through their friends or siblings. Parents should delete a pre-teen's account or ask Facebook to do so by using its "report an underage child" form.
Utilize privacy controls. Users should set everything they can to be accessible only to those on their friends list. Enabling a public search allows users' profile picture, friends list, activities and more to be visible online outside of Facebook.
Turn off Instant Personalization. Facebook has been adding sites to its Instant Personalization feature, which automatically links accounts to user-review sites such as TripAdvisor (travel) and Yelp (local businesses).
