The Education Liquidity Fund (TELF) was developed to serve the growing needs of Iowa educational institutions
while maintaining safety of principal, liquidity and competitive yields. It is a program that provides:
- competitive investment alternatives
- convenient online technology
- experienced administrative support
- ongoing investment education for participants
TELF delivers both daily and longer-term investment alternatives in accordance with Iowa Code Section 12B.10.
Liquid investments are placed in a SEC-registered money market fund. For current fund and daily rate information, click here. For longer-term investments, TELF administers TELFPlus and TELFSMA.
The Education Liquidity Fund provides ongoing investment education through ad hoc market communications and our quarterly newsletter. The newsletter includes our review of the economic markets, marketing updates and current articles of interest. These are excellent tools designed to help you and other school officials handle your cash needs.
IPASonlineTM, an online accounting system, was established in 2000. This system provides secure money movement between your pre-established local financial institution and your TELF account(s). Vendor Pay was developed in 2004 to allow for easy and efficient direct payment, via ACH, to your vendors. You can access your accounts 24/7 and enjoy same day access to daily confirmations and monthly statements. Everything you need to reconcile your accounts is available in a timely manner.
