It’s a new year and a popular resolution for many is to improve their financial situation. “Now is a great time to take stock of your financial well-being” says Navy Federal Credit Union President and CEO Cutler Dawson. For three years now I’ve been endorsing Navy Federal Credit Union. I put my name behind Navy Federal because I’ve been a member for 15 years.
For nearly 80 years Navy Federal has been serving the military with programs and services tailored to the military lifestyle and not offered to those outside the armed forces. Some of those services include (but aren’t limited to) outstanding free checking accounts and interest rates on auto loans and mortgages. Last year we were a pre-approved for a 2.99% auto loan for our new SUV.
2013 is a good time to map out a smart money strategy that doesn’t involve unnecessary fees and expenses other banks charge their members. For example Navy Federal’s active duty checking account is free and members can earn dividends as well as receive up to $20 in free ATM rebates each month. I don’t know about you, but if I found a $20 bill on the ground at the end of each month, I sure wouldn’t pass it up.
If you (or a family member) is currently serving in the military (even you DoD Contractors) I encourage you to visit navyfederal.org and see for yourself.
Navy Federal is financially solid and federally insured by the NCUA.

The Federal Reserve this week confirmed that one of its websites was broken into by cyber hackers. This Wednesday announcement is the latest in a string of high-profile hacking disclosures. This breach reportedly leaked the contact information of thousands of bankers. According to tech website ZDNet, the information was derived from thousands of emergency system bank contacts store by the Federal Reserve. Could there be even more incidents of high-profile hacking? Cyber security expert Bill Morgan chats with Tony.
*A handful of House Democrats introduced legislation that would decriminalize marijuana at the federal level and regulate it through a new Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Marijuana and Firearms. They also proposed a separate bill setting a federal tax on what would be a newly legal marijuana industry, to offset the cost of federal regulation. Democrat Congressman Jared Polis of Colorado pointed out that the legislation does not force any state to legalize marijuana, but also said places that have voted for it for medical or recreational use “deserve the certainty of knowing federal agents won’t raid” the businesses. What are The political ramifications of this move? Assistant Director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute Peter Brown sits down with Tony.
