  • $200,000 Back to Members!

    You may notice something a little extra in your account. It was another successful year for your Credit Union, and we want to thank YOU, our members. To show our appreciation, we have paid a $200,000 bonus dividend! Since 2014, we’ve given away almost $1,000,000 in bonus dividends! That’s on top of the monthly dividends, low loan rates and low (or non-existent) fees! It is just another way GECU is different, and that it truly pays to be a member!

  • Join or Refer and Win an Apple Watch!

    Start the year out right by either joining the Credit Union OR referring a new member to the Credit Union. When you do, you’ll be entered to win an Apple watch! This special runs between 01/02/20 and 02/29/20. Two watches will be given away– one for a new member and one for a member referral. If you are referring a member, the good news is the more members you refer, the more chances you have to win!
