our story

Your Community Credit Union

Telco Plus Credit Union is a not-for-profit community credit union. The members of Telco Plus are the owners of this financial institution.

All our services, rates, and fees are designed to benefit the members, not a group of investors. Instead of up-selling services to give out a bigger dividend at the end of the year, we manage costs year-round. Telco Plus offers a wide variety of products and free services, including the latest technology to make your life easier. Our accounts are federally insured for up to $250,000 through the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), a U.S. government agency.

Telco Plus Credit Union was started as East Texas Telco Credit Union on June 26, 1951. It was started as a state-chartered credit union out of the garage of a Longview home. The credit union served employees of Southwestern Bell Telephone Company in Longview. The credit union grew through mergers and members referring their friends and family until it relocated from the garage to its current location. A second branch opened in Tyler in 1996. In June of 2023 the the third location and second in Tyler will be opening. In 1997, the board changed the name of the credit union to Telco Plus Credit Union to better reflect the expanded membership base.

Membership

Join Telco Plus Credit Union today! Some credit unions require their members to be part of a group but at Telco Plus the requirements are simple:

  • You live or work in Gregg or Smith County
  • Through family
  • You work for any of our 100+ sponsor companies

If you are not sure if you are eligible for membership, please give us a call! As a member, you have access to low loan rates, lower fees, and free services like bill pay and our mobile app.

When you open an account, we will ask for
  • Your name

We will also ask to see an identifying document such as a driving license, state identification card, or passport. We do accept ITIN and Mexican Passports. Federal law, The USA Patriot Act, requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each person who opens an account.

Open your account with us today! It only takes 20 minutes and the checklist and forms from our Switch Kit make the process even faster.
