• Set clear goals. The Forte Financial Newsletter, another financial resource, says to think long and hard about this one. “We don’t mean only financial goals. We’re talking any goal you’d like to work toward in the new year that has financial consequence,” said the Forte report.

• Make a budget. Forbes calls it the financial version of a diet. Check your credit card and credit union statements for the past three months, record your expenses, and see exactly where your money is going. If you’re spending more than you take in, look for ways to pare down your expenses.

• Reduce debt. This should be key to your newly created plan for 2015. Every dollar of accumulated debt becomes a heavier drag on your entire financial life.

• Make sure your investments are diversified. Minimize your investment costs.

Take advantage of tax shelters. Each of these three goals, taken separately and together, can help you meet your new financial plan.

• As your new financial plan and your clear-set goals begin to reveal areas where you can cut back on day-to-day spending, build up an emergency fund with those savings you find. With all your future planning, you should still have a minimum of three months’ living expenses socked away for an emergency.

• Plan for retirement. Forbes reports that 80% of those who did a financial assessment reported not being on track for saving for a comfortable retirement. Have you taken advantage of all company-funded retirement plans where you work? Have you investigated IRAs?

David Graham always welcomes the chance to meet with members who want to learn more about planning for a secure retirement. You can set up an appointment with David by either going to www.southjerseyfn.com (to request an appointment online) or by calling 800-582-7640.

South Jersey Federal Credit Union Double-Check Your Forms When Filing for IRS Refunds!

Don’t let a small error cause a delay in getting back any 2014 IRS tax refund money that is due you. We want to make sure that our members don’t experience any such delays!

Please remember these important points:

• The Direct Deposit request on your tax form must be listed in your name, or the joint owners’ names; if not, it will be returned to the IRS.

• The IRS Refund should be posted to our SJFCU Routing Number – 236077755.

• Prior to submitting your refund, reconfirm your SJFCU account number.

• If the account number you list on your IRS return differs from the account number we have on file for you, it will be rejected, and returned to the IRS, causing a delay.

Please be accurate about correctly entering the above information. By filling out your tax refund forms accurately for a direct deposit, you get your refund earlier – in some cases, up to three weeks earlier than if you received a refund check by mail!

IRA Contributions for the Tax Year 2014

–  –  –

This year’s tax filing deadline is Wednesday, April 15, 2015. You have until then to make your annual contribution to your Traditional or Roth IRA for the tax year 2014. The same deadline applies to any Coverdell educational savings accounts (ESAs) you have. Remember: Filing an IRS filing extension does not extend your 2014 IRA contribution deadline!





• The maximum amount you can contribute for the tax year 2014 is $5,500 or your total earned compensation, whichever is less. (This is the same maximum amount as last year.)

• If you are 50 years of age or older, you can make an additional $1,000 “catch-up” contribution, for a total of $6,500. (This is also the same maximum amount as last year.)

• The IRA contribution limit does not apply to rollover contributions.

If you contribute to a Traditional IRA and meet certain income requirements, the full amount of your annual contribution can be tax deductible. Contributions to a Roth IRA are not tax deductible; however, if you meet all eligibility requirements, your Roth IRA distribution can be tax-free.

First, we at South Jersey Federal Credit Union want to reassure you, our members, that we are always ready to help you if your personal or financial data is ever compromised. We take service to our members seriously and will do everything we can to ensure that action is taken – quickly – to help you avoid becoming a victim of identity or account theft.

As the NAFCU’s Berger notes, “Your credit union is subject to strong data security standards established by Congress and federal regulators. While data breaches can happen anywhere, we are ready with a plan designed to ensure the safety and confidentiality of your sensitive data. Unfortunately, merchants and retailers are not subject to these federal requirements.

“Many of them follow their own data security standards,” added Berger, “but the recent rash of data breaches shows that much more needs to be done. When it comes to protecting your personal information, every measure counts.

“If your debit or credit card data is breached at a retailer, the cost of card replacement or account reimbursement to you is typically paid not by the merchant where the breach occurred, but by your credit union,” said Berger.

“Credit unions around the country are leading the effort to get Congress to pass legislation,” said Berger. “Such legislation would ensure merchants and retailers meet a national standard for protecting any of your financial data they collect when you make a purchase.” While we can’t control what happens at merchants and retailers, we want you to know that SJFCU does everything possible to assist you and your family if a breach does occur when you use your SJFCU Visa debit or Visa credit card.

As always, feel free to contact us at 800-582-7640 if you have questions, concerns, or need to report a problem.
