GTE Financial

GTE Financial is a not-for-profit financial cooperative. This means we make decisions for the benefit of all our customers, whom we call member-owners, because each one has a stake, or ownership, in our cooperative. GTE doesn’t make a profit just to turn it over to anonymous shareholders. The money we earn is returned to our “shareholders” – our members – in the form of higher dividends, lower rates and new products and services.

GTE offers all the virtual conveniences you come to expect from your bank such as Online Banking, Bill Pay, person-to-person payments, and remote deposit capture. Our members have access to a network of 30,000 ATMs across the country absolutely free. GTE also provides a full range of community development products and services designed to meet the needs of members of low-to-moderate means. Additionally, the credit union provides member benefits like financial literacy programs, free loyalty rewards programs, contests, and giveaways throughout the year, as well as appreciation events.
