Many of our active shareholding members pay $15 in equity each year until they reach their full share of $200. In order to be considered an “active” shareholding member for purposes of voting, member-worker discounts, and the Patronage Refund, a member’s equity needs to be current.
One way to know when your equity is due is to look at your Co-op receipt. At the top, next to your name, it should read “PIF” if your equity is Paid In Full. Otherwise, it will list the date that your next equity payment is due. In a few cases of long last or first names, this information may not show. Oftentimes, your cashier will also remind you if your equity due date is arriving soon.
In the interest of more convenient equity reminders, we’re making some improvements!
