Will I receive a capital credit payment every year?

Not necessarily. The Board of Directors must authorize a retirement before you receive a check. When considering a retirement, the board analyzes the financial health of the company and will not authorize a retirement if Roanoke Electric cannot afford it. Active member-owners of Roanoke Electric will receive their payment in the form of a check. We do not issue check under 5 dollars. All other individuals owed capital credit monies will be sent a check. This is typically done in the month of August.
