A credit union is a cooperative financial institution, owned and operated by its members. The purpose of a credit union is to provide competitive rates and services to its member-owners. Credit Unions serve groups that share something in common, like where they live, work, or attend school.
1936 - Baton Rouge Telco Federal Credit Union was chartered to serve the employees of Southern Bell Telephone and Telegraph Company.
1980s - Baton Rouge Telco extended its membership beyond the Telephone Company and took in Select Employee Groups (SEGs).
2004 - Baton Rouge Telco extended its membership again to the Baton Rouge Metropolitan area to include anyone who lives, works, or attends school in the following parishes: Ascension, East Baton Rouge, East Feliciana, Iberville, Livingston, Pointe Coupee, Saint Helena, West Baton Rouge, West Feliciana and Tangipahoa Parishes.
Being a member of Telco means your family is automatically eligible to join as well – parents, children, siblings, grandparents, grandchildren, stepparents, and stepchildren. It doesn’t matter where they live. They can join Telco too.
All credit unions are good. Telco strives to be the best.
