Get The Most Out of Your IRA Contributions
While you’re preparing for tax season, it’s a good idea to assess your Individual Retirement Account (IRA). It’s a great way to build financial stability. You can contribute to your 2013 IRA until April 15, 2014. You may also wish to speak with a representative of Desert Schools Financial Services, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Desert Schools Federal Credit Union, about Retirement Planning for personal growth and security.

Protect Yourself with Estate Planning and Trusts
Most people think estate planning is a necessity only for the wealthy. The truth is anyone, regardless of age or income who has children, a home or any assets, should consider some form of estate planning such as a trust. Setting up a trust is one of the best things that you can do to make sure that your family is protected. “The Desert Schools Protect My Wishes plan ” is a practical and affordable way to prepare for your family’s future.

This tax season, consider setting up a trust. Simply call (602) 336-5531.
