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 for 17 years and counting reflects a remarkable financial strength. In fact, the Board of Directors intends to pay a dividend that has historically approximated 1 percent of a customer’s eligible average daily loan balance each year, barring any unforeseen events.

Cash-Back Dividends in Basis Points
