This program is based Neighborhood Trust’s integration model and incorporates influences of behavioral economics and outcomes-driven financial counseling. Getting Ahead empowers clients to build a financial plan that is actionable, and access building-block financial products–our “Gateway Banking” package–to improve money management skills and build a healthy personal balance sheet.

The Credit Union Financial Advisory Services

Neighborhood Trust’s Credit Union Extension Program places an expert Financial Advisor in credit unions citywide (Brooklyn COOP, Neighborhood Trust Federal Credit Union, Lower East Side People’s Federal Credit Union), providing members with individualized counseling as part of their banking experience. The offering serves as a complement to the credit union’s core competency in delivering financial services. By integrating financial advisory services into credit union operations we are able to create an avenue towards better utilization of the more advanced financial services offered.

Our goal is that all credit union members have the broader financial knowledge and self-confidence necessary to apply financial services to the achievement of long-term wealth creation goals.
