Our History

1937 – 1960
Dallas Bell Telephone Federal Credit Union

On March 18, 1937, employees of Southwestern Bell Telephone Company established Dallas Bell Telephone Federal Credit Union. The new credit union began with eight charter members and $40 in assets. Credit union business was conducted out of the various Southwestern Bell offices.

1961 - 1990
Dallas Telco Federal Credit Union

Over the years, the credit union’s field of membership expanded, adding over 200 new companies (known as Select Employee Groups). In January 1961, the credit union changed its name to Dallas Telco Federal Credit Union to reflect its growing membership.

Expanding to Include All of Dallas County   

In 2004, Dallas Telco Federal Credit Union was granted a community charter that included all of Dallas County. The charter allowed the credit union to grow and serve a wider field of members.

2012 - Present
GO Federal Credit Union

To better represent the credit union’s new, larger field of membership, Dallas Telco became GO Federal Credit Union in March of 2012. The progressive new name and brand ushered in a new modern era for the credit union debuting a new location, as well as new technologies and online services.
