Money Makeover

Dupaco offers free Money Makeovers to help hundreds of members each year pay less and save more.

During a Money Makeover we take a look at your total financial picture to identify opportunities to painlessly "make over" your finances to cut costs and build savings. Your Makeover might involve budgeting, debt consolidation or refinance, a savings plan, or a number of other strategies that will help you meet your financial goals.

It's one-on-one, confidential, and there's no obligation. In fact, you don't even need to be a Dupaco member for us to review your finances.

Budget burden


Today I saw a poster in our lunch room announcing that Dupaco would be at our workplace offering financial counseling. I’ve been a Dupaco member for 22 years—what on earth could you say to this long-time member that I haven’t already heard?

Crazy-high bank interest rate


I met with my bank to consolidate my credit card debt using my car as collateral. I can trust my big name big bank … right? No more credit card companies to pay, and with good credit my rate is decent, right? Wrong. Turns out, I'm getting ripped off by their sky-high interest rate. Will working with a credit union be any different?
    Sincerely, Al .....
