Credit union shows its love for members with Patronage Dividend

SUSSEX COUNTY, DE (February 17, 2015) — Sussex County Federal Credit Union (SCFCU) rewarded their loyal member-owners with a Patronage Dividend. SCFCU Members who utilized multiple services such as checking, loans, and investments recently found an extra $100 in their checking account as a ‘THANK YOU’ for their loyalty.

Sussex County FCU’s CEO, Pamela Fleuette, explains, “A credit union is cooperatively owned by its members; each of these member-owners is a shareholder. After paying all operational costs, SCFCU reinvests in its member-owners by offering additional products and services; expanding locations and/or hours; and now thru returning a Patronage Dividend. This is just one of the many ways that our credit union stands out from other financial institutions. The more member-owners who utilize our full menu of services, the more value and benefits we can return to the membership; that’s the cooperative spirit in action.”
