Who We Are - The TTCU Story
We are community strong, trusted and growing because of our members. For more than 65 years, The Tennessee Credit Union (TTCU) has been helping members achieve their personal financial goals by delivering products, services and technology designed to exceed expectations.
The credit union was founded in 1950 by a small group of dedicated educators and volunteers guided by their commitment to provide members with the tools and knowledge necessary for personal financial growth and to help our members achieve a secure and sound financial future. This is still a guiding principle today.
When you are a member and owner of TTCU, you receive:
- Fewer and lower fees than banks
- Lower interest rates on loans
- Above market rates on deposits
- Excellent service
- Our commitment to your financial well-being
The Tennessee Credit Union is a not-for-profit cooperative that is owned and operated by its members for their benefit - which means our priority is you, not profits. TTCU is a state-charted credit union and is insured by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), an agency of the federal government. Each member's account is insured to $250,000 by the NCUA (IRAs are insured separately to $250,000).
We offer full-service banking products and services – everything the large, regional banks offer – plus, here, you always feel welcome. Enjoy banking at conveniently located branches throughout Middle and East Tennessee, plus access at 5,000 CO-OP Credit Union Shared Branch locations and more than 30,000 CO-OP ATM locations across the nation.
Our member base is diverse, including the field of education (teachers, students, employees, educators, alumni, and their families), HCA TriStar and its subsidiaries, the Nashville Musicians Association, as well as more than 300 employers, companies, and associations operating in Tennessee.
TTCU is a sound and growing financial institution, with a dedicated professional staff. From our humble beginnings, we have grown to 9 branches, more than $300 million in assets and 25,000 members. We look forward to welcoming you to our family.
