Hurricane season is gearing up again. This year, start preparing yourself early by protecting your personal information now. Unfortunately, natural disasters provide a perfect opportunity for scammers to strike.
In honor and celebration of our 65th Anniversary, VyStar Credit Union held the Oldest Artifact Contest last month. Between April 24th and April 29th, we challenged our members to dig up and share their oldest items with a VyStar or Jax Navy Federal Credit Union (our original name) logo—including newsletters, communications/letters, photos, news articles and more.
As I walked through one of the many retail stores my wife and I have visited over the last several months to shop for our soon-to-be-born baby girl, I came across a sign. It said, “Did you know that some items purchased can qualify under your insurance?”
I remember the first credit decision I ever made that had some consequences. It was a good life lesson that I am able to pass on to my children and others that I come into contact with. I was 18 years old and working in Manhattan.

This month, VyStar Credit Union will celebrate 65 years of service to our members and the communities we serve in Northeast and Central Florida. In 1952, VyStar (formerly Jax Navy Federal) was founded to serve civil service members, military employees and their families at the Naval Air Station Jacksonville (NAS Jax).
When I think of my childhood, I don’t necessarily think of myself as being an annoying kid. But, from the very day I began to talk, there was one thing I used to do that I’m sure bugged my parents at least a little: I would constantly beg for a family dog.
Chances are that little bundle of joy you welcomed to the world not too long ago is quickly approaching a huge rite of passage: high school graduation. You may have started planning for this day one after your child’s birth—maybe you even opened and funded a 529 college savings plan.
If you’re getting a tax refund this year, we know it’s awfully tempting to splurge it on a big-ticket item you have been dreaming about but haven’t been able to squeeze into your everyday budget. (A new flat-screen TV, perhaps?)
