In 1941, 19 honest hard working Carolina Telephone employees met in Tarboro, North Carolina to form Telco Credit Union. With sound financial principles and an eye on the future they put their hard earned money to work and never looked back.
Today, Telco is a full service not-for-profit financial institution serving over 10,000 members. Profits are returned to members and reflected in Telco’s ability to pay higher dividends on savings, offer lower interest rates on loans and by providing expanded products and services at less cost.
Some things will never change; our sound financial principles and maximum service and opportunities for our member / owners to make their hard earned money work hard for them.
