With the holiday season approaching, the New York Credit Union Association is reminding credit unions about an important benefit of membership: SpringFour. The platform provides credit union members who are struggling financially with access to local resources.
SpringFour, based out of Chicago, provides consumers with referrals to local programs and resources to help them improve cash flow and address the root causes of their financial challenges. The tool offers resources for individuals who are out of work or under employed, in need of lower utility or food costs, and much more.
Through the partnership, Association-member credit unions can visit the Association’s website and enter the zip code for a member facing financial hardship. The platform will instantaneously pull up a list of local organizations, government programs and other pre-approved resources that could help the member.
To learn more and to access SpringFour, visit the Association’s website.
