TrueCore Federal Credit Union is proud to announce that we have received approval for a community charter expansion by The National Credit Union Administration and the TrueCore Board of Directors. This update allows TrueCore to be able to serve persons who live, work, worship, or attend school in Licking, Fairfield, Knox, Muskingum, and Perry Counties in Ohio.
“We are very excited about this new opportunity for our credit union,” TrueCore CEO Jay Young said. “Growth is a very important part of making sure we can continue to provide the types of services that our members expect. This expansion directly aligns with our core values of service, community, innovation, and integrity. We’re thrilled to be able to offer our not-for-profit banking experience to our neighboring counties.”
TrueCore began by serving the financial needs of Owens Corning employees in 1940. The first charter expansion was to serve other employer groups in the 1980s, and the second was to serve all of Licking County in 2014.
