Financial Builders was founded in 1964 for Chrysler Employees. The Credit Union elected seven members to become board members from Chrysler who helped run the credit union in a little storefront building with two office personnel.
In 1978 we built the beautiful building we have today housing 28 employees and serving members who live, work, worship, or attend schools in Howard, Tipton, White, Carroll, Clinton, Cass, or Miami Counties. Today, Financial Builders is still led by an all-volunteer board of Directors that is elected by the membership, and each member has an equal vote, regardless of how much he or she has on deposit.
As a member-owned financial institution, members pool their financial resources to help themselves and others. Once you deposit a minimum of $5 in a savings account, you become a member — not just a customer — because your deposit is considered your share of the ownership in the credit union.
As we have grown over the years and reached further out to better serve the community, we felt the need to make a name change that would help identify us with a broader membership. In 2008 Transmission Builders Federal Credit Union became Financial Builders... Building your future together!
While savings and lending products are still the foundation of credit unions, our product menu has expanded over the years to include a wide variety of low-cost, high quality financial services with the latest electronic services available. We offer the services and innovative products that are the most important to our own members, including Kasasa Cash® and Kasasa Cash Back® checking accounts.
