Earnings from Pioneer Co-op are distributed to members based on their purchases during the year. Earnings are returned to members as equity and/or cash, depending on the co-op’s financial situation.
The cash portion is paid out each year.
The equity portion is retained by the Pioneer Co-op to help finance the business, and maintain and upgrade assets to ensure ongoing success.
Equity is normally paid out:
— when you move away from the trading area or
— when you reach over 70 years of age as specified by the Board of Directors or
— when the equity is paid to your estate
If you wish to request a payout of your equity, please download and complete the PDF file attached below. You can return it to us by mail, fax, email, or drop it off at one of our locations.
