What is the GTE Federal Credit Union?

• The GTE Federal Credit Union is a member-owned and operated credit union located in Tampa Bay, Florida. Founded in 1935, in the midst of the Great Depression, the GTE Federal Credit Union, with over $1.5 billion in assets, presently stands as one of the country’s largest locally owned and operated financial institutions. 
• The GTE Federal Credit Union is a not-for-profit financial cooperative; the organization only makes decisions and institutes business models for the benefit of its member-owners. Each individual member of the GTE Federal Credit Union has a stake or ownership share in the cooperative. Any monies earned by the GTE Federal Credit Union are returned to its members in the form of dividends or diminished interest states. 
• All funds deposited at the GTE Federal Credit Union are protected by the National Credit Union Insurance Fund. As a result of this coverage, not one member of the GTE Federal Credit Union, in its nearly 80 years of operation, has lost a single penny of insured savings. 
• In addition to providing financial services--such as low-interest loans, access to checking and savings account, mortgages, credit cards and online banking services--for its members, the GTE Federal Credit Union bolsters the surrounding communities through the funding and establishment of charitable organizations and agencies.
