The name change is expected in September

Evansville Teachers Federal Credit Union has announced plans to change its name. WNIN’s John Gibson has details:

ETFCU will change its name to Liberty Federal this September.

The credit union, founded in 1936 by local educators, serves clients of all professions -- not just teachers.

It has more than 265,000 members with 28 branches in Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee.

ETFCU President and CEO Bill Schirmer says the credit union is changing its name to “better represent” its entire membership.

Schirmer assures customers the business will remain the same, providing what he calls “superior value for all your financial needs.”

In a release, ETFCU said it reached $1 billion in assets in 2014, and surpassed $3 billion last month.

The credit union also says it’s increasingly supported schools and organizations, returning more than $900,000 through sponsorships, scholarships, and donations.

ETFCU employs a workforce of more than 700, with about two-thirds of those jobs in Evansville.
