Teachers Credit Union Surpasses 300,000 Membership Milestone

Teachers Credit Union (TCU) announces that its membership has surpassed 300,000, further solidifying TCU’s standing as Indiana’s largest credit union. To thank members, TCU will host celebrations in TCU service centers in October and will feature a monthlong promotion with special prizes. 

Valparaiso resident and local TCU senior executive, Nicole Alcorn is very happy to represent TCU and to be a part of this milestone. Alcorn said, “This is a great milestone for us! Our thanks goes out to the members for achieving this. We couldn’t do this without them.”

TCU will award prizes to members including ten $500 TCU Gift Cards and ten $500 Travel Vouchers by Rejuvia Vacation Club, as well as three $5,000 cash prizes. Primary members age 18 and older will be automatically entered, with members receiving additional entries for registering for e-statements, opening a qualifying checking account or Certificate, or applying for a TCU Visa Platinum or Platinum Rewards credit card. See tcunet.com/celebrate for full details.

This growth directly aligns with TCU’s plans and goals. Alcorn said, “It comes down to the Teachers Credit Union motto and delivering outstanding service to the community we serve. Our vision is to serve the communities and members to achieve financial success one member at a time and that is how we achieved this.”

As a part of the celebration, TCU will also give back to local communities on October 8 with the TCU Day of Giving. TCU Service Centers will be closed for the Columbus Day holiday to allow TCU’s 700 team members the opportunity to unite and volunteer at more than 40 non-profits.

As for future growth, TCU has big plans. Alcorn said, “This is just the beginning! TCU has a goal to grow to be a state-wide organization and doubling our footprint over the next 10 years, which includes more channels including branches & ATMs.”

TCU’s founding stems from a handful of teachers in 1931 pooling together their savings to help each other during The Great Depression. With assets today exceeding $3 billion, TCU is ranked in the top 10 percent of the largest credit unions in the U.S. While membership is no longer limited to teachers, TCU remains rooted in the philosophy of people helping people.
