Member Service


 

Texell is a not-for-profit financial cooperative, founded in 1948 to serve employees of the Temple Post Office, the Temple Veterans Administration Center and the Temple Soil Conservation Service. In 1983, after expanding our membership to include Temple Public School Teachers and the City of Temple the credit union's name was changed to Temple Area Federal Credit Union. After another membership expansion to include all of Bell County, Texas the name was changed to Texell in July 2002.

Credit Union Difference

Credit Unions are not-for-profit financial cooperatives, owned by members, governed by a volunteer board of directors elected by the membership, and staffed by financial service professionals. Members pool their savings, make loans to each other, and have access to other financial services. Excess earnings that are not used to strengthen the credit union's capital are returned to members in the form of higher rates on savings, lower rates on loans, and improved services.

 


Bank vs. Credit Union Difference

 

 

Banks Credit Unions
  • Income is returned to the stockholders in the form of higher dividends on their shares of stock.
  • Generate profit for stockholders. Make decisions based on what will give stockholders more profit.
  • Income driven businesses. Offer services to make a profit.
  • People who buy stock in the bank own shares of the business.
  • Serve customers from the general public. Anyone can use a bank.
  • The Board of Directors are paid a salary. A paid staff performs daily operations.
  • Only people who own stock can vote for the Board of Directors. The customers who use the bank don't have a say.
  • Income is returned to members in the form of better savings rates, lower loan rates, and low or no fees for services.
  • Not for profit organizations, make decisions based on what's best for members.
  • Financial cooperatives. Members pool their savings to provide low-cost loans and low-fee
    services to each other.
  • Each member is an equal owner.
  • Exist solely to serve their members. A person must be within the credit union's field of membership in order to join.
  • Unpaid volunteers from the membership serve on the Board of Directors and guide the credit union. A paid staff performs daily operations.
  • As owners, members elect fellow members to serve on the Board of Directors.
