IRA Contributions for Tax Year 2012
Visa Gift Cards
It’s never too early to review and
consider where you stand with regard
to your 2012 contribution to an
Individual Retirement Account (IRA)
for the 2012 tax year.
Drive right on by those crowded malls!
Do your holiday shopping the easy way
the next time you visit an SJFCU branch
– by purchasing SJFCU Visa Gift Cards!
This year’s filing deadline both State
and Federal income taxes is Monday,
April 15, 2013. You have until then
to make your annual contribution to
either your Traditional or Roth IRA for the tax year 2012.
Always remember: Filing an IRS filing extension does not
extend your 2012 IRA contribution deadline!
The maximum amount you can contribute for the tax year
2012, up through April 15, 2012, is $5,000 (or your total
earned compensation, whichever is less). If you are 50 years
of age or older, you can contribute an additional $1,000 as
a catch-up contribution, for a total of $6,000.
They’re available at every one of our
branches, and Visa Gift Cards come in
a variety of attractive holiday designs.
They’re easy to purchase – and priced right for every budget!

Reminder to Our Members Affected by
Hurricane Sandy
We realize that many
of our members may be
experiencing hardships due
to the devastation caused
by Hurricane Sandy. If you
are experiencing financial
difficulties as a result of this
tragic event, we remind you
that SJFCU has staff available to assist you.
We have several options to help you through this difficult
time. First, SJFCU is offering loans up to $10,000 at
reduced interest rates to qualified members to assist with
the hardship caused by Hurricane Sandy. You may apply by
phone, in person in any of our branches or online, using the
Promo Code “HS.”
Secondly, another option you may wish to consider is a
deferred payment arrangement on an existing SJFCU loan.
Third, we also would like to remind our members with an
existing loan or Visa credit card that you may have loan
protection coverage to assist with your monthly payments
in the event of an unexpected life event. This protection
could cover your monthly payment, or cancel your loan
balance, in the event of a loss of life, loss of income due to
disability, or involuntary unemployment.
If you need further assistance, please feel free to contact us
at 800-582-7640.
Online Bill Pay
SJFCU member Tamara D. Miller of Pleasantville was the
lucky winner of our most recent Billpayer promotion.
Every time Tamara paid a bill online during August and
September, her name was automatically entered in the drawing.
Tamara’s prize was a $100 Target gift card. Tamara just joined
SJFCU this summer. When she learned of her prize, Tamara
got yet another benefit of being an SJFCU member: “I know I
did the right thing in leaving my former bank!”
Members like the benefits of being part of a credit union – are
you using the convenient benefit of paying your bills online?
The more bills you pay online, the more chances you have
to win like Tamara – for there’s another promotion going on
right now, through the end of December.
Every time you make an online payment during December,
you are automatically entered into the Bill Payer sweepstakes.
Get on board with the convenience and time-saving benefits
of FREE online bill paying. The more bills you pay online, the
more chances you have to win!
Please note that all branches will be closed on:
