Credit Unions are cooperatives established to provide financial services for their members. Post Office Employees Federal Credit Union was chartered in 1931, to serve employees of the Postal Service in Northwest Louisiana.
Ownership of the Credit Union is it’s members – There are no outside investors. The savings of the Credit Union members are loaned to other members. The income from the loans are used to operate the Credit Union and pay dividends to the members who have savings deposited in the Credit Union.
Credit Union Board of Directors are elected by the membership and are strictly volunteer. They receive no compensation for their services. The Board of Directors establishes policies for the Credit Union operation and the staff and employees implement those policies and are responsible to the Board of the Directors.
Philosophy and Structure
Credit unions are democratically owned and controlled institutions based on ‘people helping people’ principles. Credit union Board of Directors are elected by members; each member has an equal vote, regardless of how much he or she has on deposit. Only members may serve as directors, and directors serve without compensation. Credit unions have no outside stockholders, so after reserves are set aside, earnings are returned to members in the form of higher dividends on savings, lower loan rates and lower cost services.
