Founded in 1935 during the Great Depression, GTE Federal Credit Union is one of the largest locally owned and operated financial institutions in Tampa Bay, with $1.5 billion in assets.
We are a not-for-profit financial cooperative. This means we make decisions for the benefit of all our customers, whom we call member-owners, because each one has a stake, or ownership, in our cooperative. GTE FCU doesnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t make a profit just to turn it over to anonymous shareholders. The money we earn is returned to our ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œshareholdersÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ our members ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ in the form of higher dividends and lower rates.
Your money is well protected: funds deposited at GTE FCU are covered by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF). Not one member has lost a single penny of insured savings at this credit union ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ or any other one! Serving our community is just as important to us as serving our members. GTE FCU contributes funds to many charitable organizations and agencies, and our employees support a number of worthy causes through donations and volunteering.
Not only can you join GTE Federal Credit Union, your company can apply to be a Community Partner. Companies that become Community Partners of GTE Federal Credit Union offer membership with us as a no-cost employee benefit. They also can take advantage of the services we offer to businesses of all sizes.
