Cash-Back Dividends


We offer a patronage program that returns earnings to eligible customer-owners through cash-back dividends. Each year, our customer-elected Board of Directors determines the amount distributed.

Our ability to consistently pay a cash-back dividend reflects a remarkable financial strength. In fact, the Board of Directors intends to pay a cash-back dividend equal to 0.90% of a customer’s eligible average daily loan balance for the 2018 fiscal year and beyond – the largest payout since the program began.
