Federated Rewards FAQ
The amount returned is based on how much business you do with the cooperative. The more services you use in a given year and the more long-distance calls you place, makes your share of the profit greater.
In order to operate the business, capital credits remain with the cooperative for a certain amount of time before they are returned to the members. Rural cooperatives, like any other business, must have the money on hand to provide current operating funds and to invest in facilities and new technology.
The members have agreed through the cooperative's Bylaws to use the margins to stabilize operations for the cooperative. The Bylaws also stipulate the refund of capital credits based on the financial condition of the cooperative as determined by the Board of Directors.
Big name telephone companies have a main goal to make money. That’s why most of it ends up in their pockets and not in yours! On the other hand, Federated is a Cooperative, which means that our customers are members and "owners" of the company. Surplus dollars are refunded to you when approved by the Board of Directors. Take a look at the amount of business you do with Federated Telephone. How much are you spending with other companies? Is the other company really giving you a better deal?
