A Message from Telhio's President

Members of Telhio,

It is understandable that you may have concerns about current economic conditions surrounding the news of recent bank failures. Rest assured, Telhio is financially sound, well-capitalized, and extremely focused on the strength of our balance sheet.

We want you to know that there are several reasons why credit unions are generally considered to be a safe and reliable option for banking.

Firstly, credit unions are not-for-profit organizations that are owned by their members. This means that we are not focused on making profits for shareholders, but rather on providing benefits and services to you, our members. Credit unions have a strong track record of financial stability. We're subject to strict regulatory oversight and are required to maintain sufficient capital reserves to cover any losses.

Secondly, Telhio is federally insured by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA). This means that deposits up to $250,000 are insured, just like FDIC insurance for banks. Telhio members also have additional coverage up to $250,000 provided to consumer account holders by Excess Share Insurance Corporation, a licensed insurance company, for a total of $500,000 in coverage on your personal accounts.

Telhio operates with the utmost transparency and believes our members should have access to the information they need - a key reason why we post monthly financials in our branches. We are here to answer any questions that you may have, just as we have been since 1934. We value your membership and appreciate you doing business with us.
