Nearly 80 years ago, a small group of teachers pooled their savings to lend to others in need of credit. From these humble beginnings, Teachers Credit Union has grown to become Indiana’s largest Credit Union with more than $2 billion in assets, and branches throughout Indiana and Michigan. ###

TCU not only offers traditional financial services to its members, but non-traditional services such as Travel and Insurance.
From lending financial support to its members, whether they are longtime depositors – those who hold an “Honored Role” in TCU membership – or “new” members enrolled in our Treasure Chest Club for children age 12 and under, TCU strives to provide the kind of financial support and services its members need.
While financial service is an important part of contributing to a community, TCU’s history shows a commitment to going beyond this service and working to build a better community.
The newest step in continuing this commitment for TCU came in the form of opening a new branch at 302 Silhavy Road in Valparaiso.
“We chose the location for its proximity to many retail locations, and for the high level of traffic traveling through,” Gene Novello, Teachers Credit Union regional vice president, said.
“We felt that this location, in conjunction with our other Valparaiso branch, would provide the convenience our members deserve.”
Novello said that TCU is the largest credit union in Indiana, and one of the largest in the country, which gives them the ability to provide excellent service and peace of mind to their members.
“Our track record of success and high quality member service shows that after almost 80 years in business, and with new branches opening every quarter, we are here to stay,” Novello added.
A grand opening celebration for the new Teachers Credit Union branch was held on Sept. 28, and was attended by a variety of local leaders. Part of the celebration included cake and refreshments, as well as prizes and giveaways.
According to Novello, there are certain characteristics of TCU that separate them from banks and other credit unions.
“All of our branches offer personal, member-focused financial products and services designed to fit individual needs,” he said. “Everybody has different dreams and goals in life, and our desire is to help our members achieve those goals.”
TCU consistently practices the Credit Union Philosophy of “People Helping People,” and they take every opportunity to enhance the betterment of the communities in which their members live and work. For more information on Teachers Credit Union, call 800-552-4745, or visit www.tcunet.com.
