THIS IS YOUR COOPERATIVE

EVERY MEMBER BENEFITS FROM CAPITAL CREDITS

CAPITAL CREDITS

WHAT IS IT?
Capital credits are created when the co-op has earnings, income minus expenses. At the end of each year earnings are spread proportionately to active co-op members according to the amount of money each member spent at ECEC that year.

Capital credits are an asset that should be recognized when settling an estate. If you need to settle an estate, please contact ECEC.
HOW IT WORKS
  • Capital credits accumulate in an account in your name
  • Your capital credits are paid to you as a percentage each year
  • Size of the percentage is determined by ECEC’s Board of Directors according to the cooperative's financial condition
