Introducing 7 17’s financial education blog

When 7 17 Credit Union was founded in 1957, it was with the goal of proactively and innovatively meeting the financial needs of its members. Through the years that purpose has remained, and we have continued to develop the innovative products and services that will help you reach your financial goals. Over the past several months, we have been developing another service with our Member’s financial success in mind, and we are pleased to introduce our Financial Education Blog.

Guided by the credit union philosophy of “people helping people,” Financial Fundamentals offers helpful tips, articles and ideas crafted to help you confidently and successfully navigate your financial future. The blog will cover topics such as budgeting advice, financial planning for life events, scam alerts, Credit Union news, and more. We’ll also include valuable information from KOFE (Knowledge of Financial Education), a partner of 7 17 in providing free financial education tools.

Featuring the same responsive design as, the blog is easy to navigate by topic or date. You can also use the search function on the right of the screen to locate a specific article.

Visit for regular updates – and to see what’s already in our library – and keep an eye on 7 17’s social media channels to be notified of new blog posts.
