Okay, we know - some of these links are pretty iffy.

The fact is, we're credit union people. When it comes to handling your money, we totally rock. Unfortunately, we're not that hot at other stuff.

Like web links.

You, however, know what's up. So tell us - send an email to marketing@kentcountycu.org. We'll add the ones we like to this page.

We have reviewed these links to the best of our ability; however, please realize the information in these sites may change. Kent County Credit Union cannot be responsible for the information presented on sites other than our own Web site.
