2021 Financial Holiday Gift Guide

December is a season for giving, and while there’s nothing wrong with boxes under the tree, wrapped in shiny paper with plaid bows, consider financial presents for your loved ones this year. A soft bathrobe or new video game is nice, but life insurance, savings accounts, and donations are the gifts that keep on giving—long after the holidays have passed.

1. Single Premium Youth Term Insurance

Instead of another toy or gadget that will sit on the shelf once the new and shiny has worn off, get the kids, grandkids, nieces, and nephews in your life the gift of protection with a Single Premium Youth Term life insurance policy. A Catholic United Youth Term Life policy purchased early in a child’s life:

  • Provides term protection at affordable rates
  • Can be converted to permanent insurance to age 30 without evidence of insurability
  • Gives young people the benefits of membership in Catholic United Financial, including eligibility for a Post-High School Tuition Scholarship
  • Provides a $15 donation to a Catholic school or religious education program.

Insuring a child early has advantages that can grow tremendously over time. The best part? You can get it on our website with just a few clicks right now! If you’re in need of a last-minute gift idea for the young person(s) in your life, visit www.catholicunitedfinancial.org/spyt-app to fill out the online application for Youth Term Life Insurance.

2. Saving Saints Certificate

It’s never too early to start the conversation about the value of saving, so why not kickstart a child’s account this Christmas? Catholic United Financial Credit Union offers a special Saving Saints Certificate just for young member savers under the age of 18. The minimum deposit for this savings certificate is $200 and savers can make additional deposits to this certificate at any time.  

For more information, call the Credit Union at (877) 871-8313 or visit their website at www.catholicunitedCU.org.

3. Donation to the Foundation

Tired of giving gifts, solely for the sake of giving gifts? Why not give to those in need! Donating to the Catholic United Financial Foundation is tax-deductible and supports efforts to strengthen the communities and causes that Catholics care about.

Contact the Foundation to learn more about these types of giving. When making a planned gift such as bequests, life insurance, and retirement plans, we can assist you with the proper execution of your type of gift.
