Credit Primer

Jun 19, 2019

Credit is the ability to use debt to purchase goods or services based on the trust that the individual can repay the debt. Lenders such as credit unions and banks evaluate borrowers credit to make student loans, home mortgages and credit cards.



There are many types of bank accounts that students will find useful in the coming years. We’ve already discussed savings plans specifically for college in another article, so this is an overview of some other basic financial accounts. Keep in mind, most of these accounts are Government-insured, meaning the first $250,000 of an individual’s total deposits are protected against a bank/credit union failure through the FDIC (Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation) for banks or NCUA (National Credit Union Administration) for credit unions.
