Welcome to Jack
Daniel Employees’ Credit Union. Founded
in 1977, Jack Daniel Employees’ Credit
Union provides a wide range of financial
products with a personal touch and genuine concern
for our members that sets us apart from other financial
institutions. Credit unions were formed with one
concept in mind, “people helping people”.
This simple idea created an enormous movement by groups
of individuals sharing a common bond to put member savings
together, keep overhead costs to a minimum, and make
wise investments, then return profits to the members.
This idea continues today at Jack Daniel Employees’ Credit
Union. As a not-for-profit financial institution,
created to serve the financial needs of the employees of
Jack Daniel Distillery, credit union earnings are returned
to members in the form of higher dividends on savings, lower
interest rates on loans, and low cost financial services.
Membership in Jack Daniel Employees’ Credit
only provides you with quality financial services but also
entitles you to have a voice in your credit union through
a member-elected board of directors who establish credit
union policies. These policies are then carried out by the
management and staff of Jack Daniel Employees’ Credit
Every year your credit union is examined by the State of
Tennessee, Department of Financial Institutions, Credit Union
Division, to ensure safety and soundness. The Supervisory
Committee, volunteers from among the membership who are appointed
by the board of directors, conducts periodic exams of internal
procedures including an annual audit of the financial statements.
For 30 years, the credit union was located on the premises
of our sponsor company Jack Daniel Distillery. The distillery
donated space for us to conduct our operations and serve our
members. In January 2008, the credit union was re-located
to a new building on Majors Boulevard in Lynchburg. This
new facility provides drive-thru service for our members,
private offices for loans, a board room for meetings, and
a cash dispenser for fast accurate service.
Once a member, always a member is Jack Daniel
Union’s policy. If you move away, change
your place of employment or retire, your membership lasts
a lifetime by simply maintaining your share account. As
an employee or retiree of Jack Daniel Distillery, your
family is also eligible for membership. See who is eligible for membership.
With Jack Daniel Employees’ Credit Union,
your funds are federally insured by the NCUA for up to $250,000.
