Steuben County REMC is a not-for-profit organization, meaning that any money collected that is over-and-above our budget needs is allocated as patronage and invested in the cooperative. On an annual basis, our board reviews our financial position and decides if this patronage can be returned to the membership in the form of a capital credit retirement.
This year’s retirement was from 1986. So, if you were a member in 1986, your name was on the account, and you paid your bills, you will receive a portion of what you paid into the co-op that year. That’s the beauty of being a co-op member!
If you have questions about your capital credits, please contact the office at 260-665-3563.
