About Us

Our Mission

To help our members manage their financial life by providing highly personal products and services.

Our History

Rome Teachers Federal Credit Union is a not-for-profit, member-owned financial institution whose charter was granted through the National Credit Union Administration. We were founded in 1958 by seven employees of the Rome Consolidated School District to serve its employees and their immediate family members. Our purpose is to promote thrift among our members, by affording them an opportunity for accumulating their savings, and to create for them a source of credit for provident or productive purposes.

Over the years, our products and services offered has grown, along with the employee groups we serve. We now serve twelve local school districts, as well as the Jervis Public Library, Rome Community Theater, and the Lewis County Health System.
We spent many years operating within a building of the Rome City School District, until 1998 when we moved into our own building, where we are located today.

NCUA Insurance

Is my money safe in a credit union?

Federally insured credit unions offer a safe place for you to save your money, with deposits insured up to at least $250,000 per individual depositor. The National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) is the independent agency that administers the NCUSIF. Like the FDIC's Deposit Insurance Fund, the NCUSIF is a federal insurance fund backed by the full faith and credit of the United States government.

MyCreditUnion.gov is the NCUA’s consumer website that provides consumers and credit union members of all ages and life stages important financial literacy and personal finance information and resources.
