Your path to financial success starts here
At TOPCU we believe providing financial education to our Members is a part of a well-rounded banking experience. Managing day to day finances can be difficult, and taking time to proactively learn about how to improve your financial future is a project that many people put off.
The NCUA-hosted financial literacy webinars update consumers, credit unions and their member-owners on the latest national financial literacy trends and research, as well as highlight financial literacy programs and resources from NCUA partners and collaborators.

51% of TOPCU’s employees are certified as financial counselors, this allows us to offer additional benefits to our membership. The financial counseling is offered for free for TOPCU members and is designed to assist a variety of financial situations. Financial counselors cannot give specific advice regarding investments (though our Financial Advisor can) or taxes. However, we can help point you in the right direction.
Members will work with a counselor to create an action plan based around their goals. This may be someone just starting to build their credit or someone that needs a little help to get back on the right track after a financial setback. It could also be someone who just wants to know they are making good choices.
What is a CCUFC?
A Certified Credit Union Financial Counselor (CCUFC) is a designation given to those who are specially trained in assisting our members to understand their financial situation and develop solutions. Subjects include budgeting, saving, and reducing expenses. The course is designed to help improve the financial wellness and literacy of our members and to help give them the tools to develop their financial standing.
