Dear OSU Federal Credit Union,

We would like to thank you for the paper shredder. Your gift will help students that need vocational training but aren’t able to travel. We can now use this shredder as part of the training program at our school. This will teach skills that will help later in life. Thank you so much for your donation!

“As a not for

profi t fi nancial


we exist to help


Richard S. Hein President/CEO

On behalf of our 74,000-plus members, volunteer board of directors, supervisory committee, and employees, please accept this publication as the 2013 annual report of OSU Federal, Your Community Credit Union.

As the President/CEO, I am proud that OSU Federal remains well capitalized and positioned to do our part locally to assist others in this time of continued recovery. Sound fi nancial practices enabled us to manage through new governmental regulation and an unsure economy to produce a solid year in 2012.

Regularly, we hear rewarding stories of how we have been able to help a member’s dream come true. Whether it’s creating solutions for members going through significant life changes, providing opportunities for small businesses that would not exist otherwise, or playing a major role in Oregon’s financial literacy.

The credit union model of lower fees and competitive loan rates served the state of Oregon well evidenced by more than $121 million in direct member benefi ts in 2012 alone. The average Oregon credit union member saved almost $100 in fees and the average household saved more than $170 overall. OSU Federal’s

Dear OSU Federal


focus on the credit union mission contributed substantially to those statewide benefi ts.

As a not for profi t fi nancial cooperative, we exist to help people. It is an honor and a privilege to serve you and provide for your fi nancial needs.

Thank you for your continued trust, loyalty, and support of OSU Federal.

Respectfully submitted,

Richard S. Hein President/CEO


OSU Federal continued to grow at its trademark steady pace in 2012. OSU Federal’s shares (or deposits) increased 7.55% to $688.3 million. Total assets fi nished the year at $785.4 million, an increase of 7.48%, ranking us the seventh largest credit union in Oregon. Net worth grew to 10.69% of total assets. For the year, membership fi nished at 73,646, up 6.61% from 2011.

Growth in real estate

Despite continuing to adhere to additional governmental regulation, it was another solid year in real estate lending as we remain among the top 10 lenders in our fi ve-county fi eld of membership. The 10-year no fee mortgage loan program introduced in 2012 yielded solid results.

Business services memberships increased 10%

OSU Federal is now serving over 3,300 local businesses and associations. A new referral arrangement was established with Oregon Coast Community College. With this Lincoln County addition, all fi ve counties we serve now have micro-enterprise referral programs.

New online account access system launched

The landmark transition to a more robust online account access platform was successfully completed in February 2012. Members

can now access their accounts by computer, mobile device and iPhone and Android apps. Enhanced bill pay, ebill presentment, TurboTax and FinanceWorks, a personal fi nancial management tool, are now available within online account access.

Granted Low Income Credit Union (LICU) designation

Since our charter year of 1954, OSU Federal has adhered closely and prudently to the original mission of serving those of small means. For these 59 years of service, validation came from the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) that we qualify as a Low-Income Credit Union (LICU), based on 2010 Census data as more than 57 percent of the OSU Federal membership live in an area that have incomes 80% or less than the corresponding median family income.

Loan payment protection option includes involuntary unemployment coverage

A new suite of payment protection products was completed in May. A new debt cancelation product suite, called Payment Protection, not only includes death and disability protection, but also offers borrowers an option to cover events of

involuntary unemployment. This increases member value and peace of mind.

Supervisory Committee report

Credit Unions – a defi nite

diff erence

What makes a credit union diff erent? The following principles distinguish a credit union from all other fi nancial institutions.

Not for profi t

Credit unions are not for profi t fi nancial cooperatives, owned and operated for the benefi t of our members. We do not issue stock or pay dividends to outside stockholders. Instead, earnings are returned to our members in the form of additional locations, more services, lower or no fees, and competitive interest rates.


Credit unions pay taxes – payroll, sales taxes and property taxes. Congress exempts credit unions from federal income taxes. The exemption was established in 1937, affi rmed by statute in 1951, and re-affi rmed in 1998.


Credit unions are economic democracies owned by members. Each member has equal ownership and one vote, regardless of how much money a member has on deposit.

Volunteer boards

Each credit union is governed by a board of directors, elected by and from the credit union’s membership. Board members serve voluntarily.

Membership eligibility

By current statute, credit unions cannot serve the general public. Individuals and businesses/organizations qualify for a credit union membership through their employer, organizational affi liations like religious groups, or community.

Financial education for members

Credit unions assist members to become better educated consumers of fi nancial services.

Social purpose: people helping people

Credit unions exist to serve their members fi nancial needs, not provide a profi t to third party investors. They know their credit union will be there for them in bad times, as well as good. The same people-fi rst philosophy causes credit unions and our employees to get involved in community charitable activities and worthwhile causes.
