WAA Partners with UW Credit Union on Refinancing Student Loans
UW Credit Union has formed a partnership with the Wisconsin Alumni Association (WAA) to be their exclusive student loan refinance partner. Besides lowering their interest rates, members will enjoy one convenient payment, a potential reduction in monthly payment and multiple terms to choose from.

UW Credit Union participated in the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program for the eighth consecutive year. VITA helps prepare tax returns for low to moderate income households free of charge, making sure that participants take advantage of all available deductions. The program completed over 582 tax returns this year and returned nearly $650,000 in federal and state refunds.
UW Credit Union employees review returns completed by VITA volunteers and answer any questions participants have along the way. The 37 volunteers contributed 1,165 volunteer hours to the program and saved clients over $102,432 in tax preparation fees.
Using the Equity in Your Home
As the housing market continues its recovery – and indeed, in some markets heats up – home values are rebounding. That offers a distinct advantage to sellers, but it also offers a benefit to homeowners who have no plans to sell.
