A 20 Year Tradition Continues with our 2016 Loyalty Dividend

Posted by Patti Conty on Dec 23, 2016 2:53:58 PM

In the last week of December, I take a break from my usual routine. There’s time for home-cooked breakfasts, afternoon tea, and long visits with family and friends. This quiet intermission before jumping into a busy new year is a gift I give to myself.

Hanscom FCU is giving gifts as well. For the 20th consecutive year, the board of directors has approved a Loyalty Dividend. On December 31, Hanscom FCU will distribute an extraordinary payment of 2% of dividends earned and interest paid on most consumer loans.

International Credit Union Day takes place on Thursday, October 20, 2016 to recognize the history and achievements of credit unions around the world. For more than 160 years, credit unions have put people before profit and demonstrated the power of a financial cooperative.   

In the 1850s, hard times hit Germany, and people turned to each other for help. They removed small savings from under mattresses and started making reasonably priced loans to one another. These early credit unions were the model for all the credit unions that followed: not-for-profit, democratically controlled and community oriented. The principles that guided them then, guide credit unions today.
