As part of your membership, we offer BudgetSmart, an easy-to-use software tool for budgeting. This user-friendly tool provides simple graphics, 'pop-up' menus, and bar charts to help you manage your money more effectively.

BudgetSmart gives a clear, concise method for tracking spending, an easy formula to establish a budget, and allows you to try out “what-if” scenarios to demonstrate the impact of a major purchase or a change in income on your budget. Once the software is downloaded to your computer, you'll have access to an easy-to-use guide and a list of frequently asked questions to get you started on your personal budget.

The BudgetSmart software is offered as part of the Accel Members Financial Counseling program provided through the Credit Union. The unbiased information and assistance helps members find solutions to achieve financial goals. BudgetSmart also assists with personal and family budgeting, credit report reviews, money management, debt repayment, and assistance in avoiding bankruptcy, foreclosure, and repossession.
