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 $1.8 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 doesn't make a profit just to turn it over to anonymous shareholders. The money we earn is returned to our "shareholders" - our members - 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 - 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 Select Employee Group, or SEG. Companies that become SEGs 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. We invite you to apply for membership and discover the credit union deference. Join today!
