We Are Growing
BayPort Credit Union has had an exciting summer. During the month of May, we introduced
two new locations to better serve our members. This brings our total number of branches to 24.
First, we are pleased to announce our merger with Norfolk Virginia Postal Credit Union
effective May 1, 2016. We welcome the NVPCU membership and staff to BayPort. Former
NVPCU members will notice the familiar faces of NVPCU staff members that have accepted
positions at BayPort.
Second, we are proud to partner with Jim’s Local Market in the Southeast Community of
Newport News. BayPort has opened an on-site credit union branch to serve staff and local
community members that have limited access to a grocery store and a financial institution. In
addition to the on-site branch, we will host financial seminars for community members to assist
them in meeting their financial goals.
We look forward to serving our new BayPort members. Visit us online at
for a full list of branches and ATMs.

purchased through BayPort Insurance, LLC is
not a deposit, not federally insured, not an obligation of the credit union, not guaranteed by
the credit union or any affiliated entity, involves
investment risk, including the possible loss of
principal, and may be offered by an employee
who serves both functions of accepting member
deposits and selling insurance.

Creating Financial Success in Our Community
You may have noticed BayPort focusing on financial education over the last several years.
We have always been advocates of members learning how to make their money work for them.
But we are also part of this awesome Greater Hampton Roads community and wanted to spread
smart money skills to all of our community members, not just those that are BayPort members.
We realize that the more our community knows as a whole, the better our economic development in this area will be, and that’s good news for everyone.
So how can we help educate the community as a whole? We have deployed several new and
exciting initiatives to do just this. We offer financial and retirement workshops at specific locations open to members and non-members alike; we will come to your business or organization
to provide on-site financial workshops to address topics important to your colleagues; and we
offer several options for the youth in our area to join fun and interactive games to help better
2016 Financial Football Camp understand budgeting and real-life finances. The latter has recently exploded as we have hosted
five Financial Football Camps and opened Student-Run Credit Unions in 13 local schools as of the end of the 2015-2016 school
year. And we are not slowing down. In fact, we are on track to open over 30 Student-Run Credit Unions during the 2016-2017
school year.
In addition to ramping up programs we already have in
place, we hosted our very first Reality Fair at York High
School. Seniors of York High were invited to attend a Reality
Fair on-campus with the help of 40 BayPort staff volunteers.
Students were assigned a “life” when they entered showing
their profession, salary, marital status, and whether or not they
had children. Students then moved from table to table selecting a home, car, and furnishings, as well as budgeting for groceries, clothing and personal hygiene, and of course, daycare!
At the end, the goal was to have enough money to pay your
Dozier Middle School Volunteer Tellers Signing First Dollar at
expenses while still having money to save and invest.

Unique Needs of Small Business Owners
As a small business owner,
you wear many hats. You’re
the boss, the Human Resource
Department, the accountant
for daily activities, and maybe
even the cashier. So when you
are juggling so many different
responsibilities, it’s no wonder
you spend little time looking
for the right financial institution for your business banking
needs. However, skipping
research on the right bank can
end up costing you big.
Most experts agree that for
a small business, community-based financial institutions are your best bet. Not only do they
understand the local market, but their products and services match the needs of local businesses.
They generally have more flexibility in the lending arena than their larger, national counterparts,
and they are able to meet with you face-to-face, tour your business, get to know your needs and
wants, and then offer recommendations.
BayPort’s Business Banking division is here for you and your small business’s unique financial
needs. Give us a call to learn how our business banking experts can help you with all your business banking needs at 757.873.4045.
At BayPort Financial,
available through CUSO
Financial Services, L.P.
(CFS*), we provide the
tools to help you achieve
your financial goals. We
are dedicated to helping
you meet your retirement
planning, estate planning
and investment management
needs. Call to schedule your
complimentary review.
