The many, many reasons for membership.
At General Electric Credit Union (GECU), being a member means more than just better banking. It means being part of a community with access to solid financial solutions that put YOU first, not shareholders. The best part, GECU membership is open to anyone in the Greater Cincinnati.
When you become a GECU member:
- You are a member-owner at the third largest financial institution in Greater Cincinnati, not just any person with an account number.
- You have a voice in how the Credit Union is run.
- You are part of an organization that focuses on giving back to the communities it serves.
- You'll find we focus on serving our members, not profits.
- You get access to 57,500+ free ATMs across the country.*
- You'll see we have lower fees than banks.
- Your funds are protected by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA).
- You have access to our top-rated mobile app.
At GECU, our members are really owners. But, what does that mean?
Your membership at GECU represents your share of the Credit Union, and all it takes is a one-time $5 deposit into your Membership Share/Savings account to get started. That's it! Once you're a member of GECU, you're a member for life.
