A Message from Educators President, Eugene Szymczak

The last couple of years have been difficult for the country and our local communities. Many members have lost their jobs, homes and savings. Your credit union has also had to adapt to these changing times while interest rates have fallen to unheard of levels.

Despite the challenges, we are confident that things will get better by remaining committed to:

  • provide First Class Service to our member/owners — our goal is to do what is in the best interest of our members.
  • provide great resources to educate and advise members in making well-informed financial decisions.
  • provide very competitive rates and limited to no minimum balance requirements or fees to save members money.
  • deliver on our core values of honesty, integrity, fairness, respect and excellence.
  • continue to be safe and sound — Educators is in very good financial shape with a capital ratio of around 11.00%.

In addition, we offer many programs that are making a difference in member’s lives, such as Educators Envision and What’s Your Score? where members can get a free copy of their credit report and score, with an explanation of what it all means.

Be assured that your credit union is here for you. Please turn to us in your times of need!
