Family Finances

"I'm focused on my kids, my job, and my home. To do right by all three, I'm trying to learn all I can about money management."

This can sound complicated, but we'll help you get the hang of it.

Raising kids is a challenge, and so is understanding family finances. You'll soon learn that no two checking accounts are exactly alike, that home mortgages can have considerably different repayment terms, and that there are countless ways to save for college, each with its own advantages. But breathe easy, because Clearview is happy to help our Pittsburgh-area neighbors make the right decisions.

Upgrade your checking

Let's start with a strong foundation. You need a checking account that helps you manage money and not just spend it. It would also be nice if it had a few bells and whistles that made life a wee bit nicer. You've just described Clearview's Absolute Checking® account. Our free banking app helps you tap into your money from wherever life takes you. Your deposits earn you dividends that put extra cash in your wallet. And then there's a pile of perks that includes travel discounts, shopping rewards, cell phone protection, and extended warranties. 

Reward yourself

We can tell you like the sound of all those rewards. Want to double down? It's time for a Big Boy or Big Girl credit card. Enjoy up to 2% cash back with our Premium World® Mastercard® which you can also redeem for travel, merchandise, gift cards, and more.

Get more from your money

We hate to break this to you, but family finances can get pretty expensive. In no particular order, you're going to need a car or two, a house, rooms full of appliances and furniture, clothes and toys for the kids, and money for emergencies. That's a lot! Better add some extra cash for a vacation to decompress from it all. A Money Market account is a safe, solid way to grow your cash faster than a regular savings account. You'll earn investment-level returns, yet still have easy access to your money.

Bump it up

With an imposing house down payment looming in the not-too-distant future, we might need to get just a bit more creative. One way to make even more money is with a Bump Rate Certificate. This cool savings tool is the ultimate win-win proposition. From the beginning, it guarantees you a really high rate of return. But even more exciting is that you can lock in an even better certificate rate should overall interest rates rise in the future.

Make a move

With enough time, you'll pull together enough cash to start looking for your perfect home in the perfect neighborhood. But that's going to seem like a cakewalk compared to figuring out how to finance your six-figures-or-more purchase. Our advice: Ask for help. Clearview's friendly lending team can explain the ins and outs of mortgages and help you pick a loan that fits your monthly budget and long-term financial plan. 

Get help with family finances when you need it

Here's a hard truth: No matter how responsible you are, the chips don't always fall your way. You might have a dip in your income, a bout of poor health, or run into a major repair bill. Whether you want a revolving credit line or a lump sum of cash, we can help you get over any financial hump with a personal loan that won't cost you an arm and a leg.

Savings options that make sense

It wasn't long ago you were still a student. Now look how far you've come. There's only one more thing to worry about - college. That is, college costs for your kids. Even if they're still learning the ABCs, it's not too soon to start saving. A Share Certificate can get you rolling in the right direction. Or if you're looking for some tax benefits, you might consider a Coverdell Education Savings Account, which can someday let your kids enjoy the same opportunities that got you to where you are today.

With a job, a spouse or partner, and maybe a kid or two, you've got a lot of responsibility. From here on out, not much comes for free. Not only do you have to work hard to meet all of life's demands, but you need to squeeze every ounce of potential out of your family finances.
