Free Deployment Guide
Deployment for you and your family can be stressful and challenging, regardless of whether it is a first deployment, or your 10th. You must be able to manage your finances while deployed and Travis Credit Union can help.
We offer a free, comprehensive guide to help you prepare for deployment, and reduce stress on your family during this period. This guide will acquaint you with options that can make handling finances from overseas easier. It describes the Travis Credit Union services that can help you stay in touch with your accounts, options for designating a financial helper while you're deployed and steps to take before, during and after deployment.
My Life: A Kid's Journal
For families facing deployment we are pleased to provide a free journal that kids can use to document their activities while their loved one is deployed. You can get your free copy at any of our branch locations.
