As president of the Collier County Education Association, I highly recommend the Educators Choice program offered by Suncoast Credit Union. The introduction and implementation of the plan is hassle free. The options and resources offered can be specifically tailored to meet your financial needs. The one-on-one personal touch provided gives my family and me confidence and security in our finances and future retirement.

The Educators Choice program is a valuable resource for services that can help our members. I met with Suncoast in several virtual meetings and received clear, sound retirement and investment information that helped me understand how my personal FRS, Social Security and other investments will work together to secure a financially sound retirement. There was no pressure, but lots of expert information that gave me peace of mind for the future.

I’ve been extremely impressed with the financial and educational opportunities Educators Choice, powered by Suncoast Credit Union, provides. They take a very individualized, easy-to-understand approach to financial planning, a topic that honestly intimidates many people. Educators Choice has a very professional and responsive staff. The feedback I’ve received from everyone who has worked with them has been stellar. I’m very grateful we can offer their very necessary and comprehensive financial planning services to our members and staff.

Sitting down with a trusted financial planner is tedious but crucial, and the Educator’s Choice program through Suncoast Credit Union made the process easy and informative. The plan and projections that our union benefit, Educator’s Choice, provided helped me make sound financial decisions as I plan for retirement and beyond. I highly recommend our members take advantage of this free financial planning program through our union benefits.

The Credit Union Difference

We pride ourselves on being different. Credit unions are not-for-profit, financial cooperatives owned by their members — and they exist specifically to help meet the financial needs of those members. Credit union profits go back to members, which is why they get lower rates on loans, higher earnings on deposits and more free services.


Educators Choice is a custom designed financial guidance and planning program powered by credit unions in your community.
