Congrats! You are officially an adult and now all the fun begins! Or maybe we meant to say this is when all the stress begins. Only kidding. Financial independence doesn’t have to be scary or unpredictable--you have what it takes to make your money work for you. Sure, you’ll have to work hard to live a life that is financially freeing, but if you’re ready to embrace financial security, SunWest has exactly what you need. Our Journey Accounts were designed specifically for 18-22-year-olds who are ready to build a future worth celebrating. Maybe you’re looking for ways to tackle student loan debt. Or perhaps you’re ready to purchase your first car or apartment and you want to do it right. Wherever your journey takes you, SunWest has your back.

the features you deserve, the guidance you need

Well, here we are--all grown up and ready to take on the world. Although we will always advocate for staying true to your inner child, we also know that in order to make your dreams a reality, you have to learn what it takes to become a successful adult. That’s why we do what we do. We exist to help our members own their journey through smart financial planning and management. Your Journey Account comes equipped with the best support money can buy (you don’t need to pay us though) and the resources you need to write your own story. Don’t believe us?

adulting, amiright?

Man, it’s tough out there. You have a whole new set of responsibilities and now you’re expected to “figure it out” on your own. That’s a scary thought at first and we know you have a lot to think about as you start the next chapter. We weren’t built to do life alone, so why should you have to manage your finances alone? As your trusted credit union, we want you to know we’ll always be here for you when you need us most. We've also compiled a library of resources here, so you don't have to endlessly search for unreliable answers to your financial questions. Our video series, Ask SunWest, covers frequently-asked questions from our members, while MoneyEDU provides courses to help you develop a financial path that's right for you. Plus, you can follow @sunwestfcu on social media to get the most out of your membership with exclusive contests, prizes, and events.

so, what's next?

As you become more comfortable managing your own finances, it’s important to remember to periodically reassess your money situation. What worked in the beginning of your journey might need some adjustments once you’ve found an entry-level job, or maybe it’s time to start building credit. Whatever your next move is, SunWest is here to help.
