By the numbers: TTCU
85 years later, TTCU Federal Credit Union has grown to become the second largest credit union in the state.
Tim Lyons, TTCU Federal Credit Union president and CEO, cuts the ribbon at the grand opening of TTCU’s downtown branch on May 14, 2018.
In 1934, Linnie B. Wilson started the Tulsa Teacher’s Credit Union out of a schoolhouse cigar box to help teachers during the Great Depression. Now 85 years later, TTCU Federal Credit Union has grown to become the second largest credit union in the state.
And although the business may have grown over time, leaders say the goal remains deeply embedded in the company’s DNA: to take care of its members.
“It’s a tremendous culture that we are stewards of, and one of our tasks is to make sure we don’t lose that,” says President and CEO Tim Lyons.
16 branches spread over northeastern and central Oklahoma comprise TTCU Federal Credit Union.
TTCU will have 2 new branches in Sand Springs, expected in 2020, and Oklahoma City, expected this year.
There are 130,731 current members.
The credit union’s asset size is $1.9 billion.
$2.9 million in member rewards dividends were paid out in 2018.
$1.1 million has been donated through the School Pride program since 2007. Members select debit card designs honoring area schools, and every time they use their debit card, TTCU makes a financial donation to that school.
