Who’s Always Been #1 at Centris? Our Members!
Ever since Pearl Scheid was the first person to sign the Omaha Telephone Employees Federal Credit Union charter in 1934, we’ve been working hard to meet the needs of our members. Back then, when Scheid contributed her $7 to the pool of funds, only $49 was needed to charter a credit union, and it was just enough to pay for ledgers and office supplies to get the enterprise up and running.
Fifty years later, in 1984, Scheid told the Omaha World-Herald in an article celebrating Bell Federal’s 50th year: “I never doubted the success of the credit union.” Now, with over 80 years behind us, we are looking forward to fulfilling our commitment to being a life-long financial partner for our members for many years to come.
