  What banking and financial services will be available to you

This is what you'll discover

These 10-minute segments introduce MHV as a community member and your potential financial partner.

Community Impact

The Credit Union philosophy is “people helping people”. Discover how MHV commits to this belief and serves our members and our communities. Hear from Michael Mattone, VP of Community Impact, as he chats about MHV’s plans to serve the Peekskill community with member service as well as financial and volunteer support – complete with a sneak peek at renderings of our upcoming branch location.

Financial Education

No one should navigate their financial journey alone. And that’s why commitment to financial education is one of our guiding principles. In this conversation, you’ll hear about the on-demand financial education available to you. Sarah Short, MHV’s Financial Education Specialist, will highlight some of the podcasts, webinars, videos, articles and more that we’ve built and answer any questions you have about our programs.

Products and Services

Learn more about the affordable and member-focused products and services that we offer at MHV! You’ll hear from our Peekskill Branch Manager, Roger Campos, as he discusses all of the benefits of banking with MHV, including free checking, savings accounts, and our low interest personal loan. Bring your banking and MHV questions for Roger to answer during the session.
