Who are we looking for?
Coos-Curry Electric Cooperative Inc. is looking for members who have unclaimed capital credit checks issued in 2016 and 2017. The CCEC Board of Directors approved the retirement and issuance of those capital credit checks to members who had electric service with CCEC in 1987, 1988 and 1989.
The names of members who have unclaimed capital credits will appear in a special insert within the Curry Coastal Pilot Newspaper. The insert will be published at least one time in January, February, March, and April 2022. The list also will beposted to our website at www.ccec.coop/capital-credits.
What are capital credits?
Capital credits reflect each member’s ownership in the cooperative. Other businesses and utilities return profits to investors and shareholders. Not us. CCEC is a member-owned not-for-profit cooperative, and we return margins or profits as capital credits to members like you. Members invest in CCEC when they buy power. Each year, after all expenses have been paid, any remaining margins are allocated to members as capital credits in proportion to their electric use.
Visit the Capital Credits Page to see if your name appears on the list, or if you know the address or phone number of a person or business on the list.
If you are not the member listed, you must be legally authorized to claim one of these checks, including checks for members that are deceased.
A form is available to fill out on the website. Please provide your name, the listed member’s name, and telephone number. A member of our team will contact you as soon as possible. For additional questions, contact us at 541-332-3931 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Unclaimed capital credits will be forfeited and reclaimed by Coos-Curry Electric as permanent equity six months after the last published notice.
