Coronavirus and Our Committment to Our Members

FEE CHANGES

With the reopening to regular hours, we will reinstate all previously waived fees, including NSF fees and loan late charges starting July 20, 2020.  We will continue to allow each member 4 free out of network ATM transactions per month. Fees charged by the providers of the out of network ATMs will still be assessed, as Genesee Co-op FCU has no control over setting those fee rates.

This will be reviewed on an ongoing basis to insure appropriate actions are taken to safe guard both the membership and the credit union

LOBBY HOURS are back to normal

Effective Monday June 29th, 2020, we are open regular hours following social distancing protocols:

  • Mon-Wed 10am-5pm
  • Thu-Fri 10am-6pm

We will be limiting the number of members in the lobby to 4, following regular cleaning protocols, and offering hand sanitizer for members and staff. We ask that you always wear a mask.  One may be provided if you do not have one. 

SHARED BRANCHING

Use any one of a national network of 5,000 credit unions across the country to perform your financial transactions (including checks and money orders.)  No need to come into the Genesee Co-op when you can use the drive thru window at one of these locations to protect yourself and employees during the pandemic.

There are 27 branches in the area, but not all are open during the pandemic and almost all are operating drive-thru only, so check before you go.

Visiting the Credit Union

If you need to visit us in person, the Credit Union remains open to serve our members. To make visiting us as safe as possible, we've augmented daily cleaning procedures with the use of stronger disinfectant products on high-touch surfaces, including the ATM screen and keypads, have made hand sanitizer readily available, and are educating staff on best practices recommended by the CDC.  We are wiping down the teller station after after member transaction.

We hope that you and your families stay safe and healthy and we will continue to closely monitor the situation and evaluate additional measures to support our members as needs arise. Please check back with us on our website or online banking for up-to-date information.

 


Our Members make the difference.

Member Since 1982

"I've been a member since the Credit Union was just Dave Knoll with a cardtable in the hallway of the old Genesee Coop on Saturday mornings. I've never been tempted to go anywhere else since that time, even though I now live thirty miles away. I like dealing with nice staff who know my name, who are eager to help, and who are dedicated to financial literacy and empowerment. Plus, it's good to know that my money is being used to invest in people rather than fill the pockets of the wealthiest.

In addition to savings and checking I've turned to the credit union for debit cards, line-of-credit, auto financing, on-line banking, and a home mortgage. I've now financed at least four cars through the credit union, and I've successfully encouraged friends to do the same.

One of my boldest statements ever in the face of raw financial power was when the car dealer required me to sit through a presentation on their financing. My response: "I'm a loyal credit union member, and I'll stick with it even if you offer me zero percent. If I ever get in trouble, the Credit Union will help me work it out, but you guys'll just send the collection agent after me." The guy just gulped and that was that.

Yee-hah!

And I don't want to forget to mention that as a Credit Union member I get to vote. Real democracy - awesome!

Genesee Co-op Federal Credit Union - it's the best deal in town!"
