The TFCU operates its main office in Ticonderoga, where it was chartered in 1954 as the International Paper Ticonderoga Mills employee credit union. Since then it has amended its charter twice.
Credit unions serve groups that share something in common, such as where they work or live, said TFCU Marketing Director Kimberly Rielly. TFCU has a community charter, and our field of membership now includes those who live, work, or worship in all of Essex and Washington counties and beyond.
Rielly explained that TFCU offers a suite of products that mirror the types found at traditional banks: savings, a variety of loans, IRAs, share certificates (CDs), VISA credit cards, and more. As a not-for-profit, though, earnings are returned to members in the form of lower loan rates, higher returns on deposits, and lower fees.
Credit unions are well known for their outstanding member service and proactive community involvement. Were looking forward to increased participation in the organizations and events that are part of Elizabethtowns community, said Rielly.
The TFCU opened its first branch in March 2007 in Port Henry, and currently operates four ATMs located in Ticonderoga, Port Henry and Schroon Lake. They have long been considering additional branch locations in order to better serve their existing and potential membership.
