United Teletech Becomes Official Municipal Depository

TINTON FALLS – United Teletech Financial Federal Credit Union (UTF) recently became an official municipal depository in the state of New Jersey.

The eligibility was secured through the Governmental Unit Depository Protection Act (GUDPA), which protects the deposits of municipalities and local government agencies.

The credit union filed its GUDPA application and received its official Notification of Eligibility in November.

“This is a big deal and allows UTF to bid for the deposits of various public entities as they receive funding at the beginning of the year,” said Leo R. Ardine, president and CEO of UTF. “I’m very proud that we are one of only a handful of credit unions in the state to obtain this distinction.”

UTF will be included on the list of eligible depositories for local government entities, municipalities and school districts in Monmouth, Middlesex and Ocean counties.

The New Jersey Credit Union League helped to pass legislation in 2011 to allow credit unions to enter the $15 billion municipal depository market.

“The league opened the door for credit unions across the state, and we consider this eligibility not only a great achievement for UTF, but for the industry as a whole,” Ardine said.
