A different kind of financial institution

Unlike other financial institutions, Columbus Metro exists for the benefit of its members. As a member-owned, not-for-profit financial cooperative, we return excess earnings to our members in the form of higher savings rates, lower loan rates and the addition of new products and services.

Columbus Metro has been serving the unique financial needs of members and their families since 1951. In early 2021, Columbus Metro joined the Telhio Credit Union family. We’re currently working full integration of the two institutions under the Telhio Credit Union name in early 2022. Like Columbus Metro, Telhio is committed to putting people over profit.

Become a member

To become a member, simply open a share savings account with an initial deposit of $5 or more. This is your primary account at Columbus Metro, representing your share in the ownership of your credit union. As long as that $5 remains on deposit, you can take advantage of all the other products and services Columbus Metro has to offer.
