Many years of excellent service!

I begin my relationship with Georgia's Own Credit Union back in 1998 when it used to be called Georgia Telco. At that time I was an employee of At&t in Augusta, GA. When I first signed up there was not a branch in the area so it was all done via mail or over the phone. However, even then the customer service was excellent. One example was when I was trying to open a savings account for my oldest daughter. I had to submit the paperwork to prove I was her mother and that she was in fact who she was, this was before verifying identity via the internet. Everyone was so helpful setting that up. Since then I have continued to have my savings account as well as my daughters and there is now a local branch in my area. I have always received great customer service when visiting the bank to add money to the savings accounts or when I was checking the balances. I will continue to have my savings accounts there for years to come.

Great banking experience

Posted by: Maurestic | Dec 7, 2017

I've used a credit union for over 25 years now. The credit union I startd with was eventually bought by and merged with Georgias Own. It has been a fantastic experience. The first major benefit is that they have always been associated with my employer so there has always been a branch in the building that I've worked in. There's nothing more convenient that taking the elevator to the bank. I've had checking and savings accounts the entire time. The fees and interest rates are always better in the long run than the big commercial banks. I don't even remember the last time I paid any sort of fee. The have special accounts for minors also so I set up savings accounts for my kids before they even started school. Honestly, I don't know why someone would not choose a credit union given the opportunity.

A great local credit union

Georgia's Own Credit Union is a local credit union in Georgia. They offer many different services, as you would expect from a credit union. I initially was turned on to them by an auto salesman when I was purchasing my first vehicle. He let me know that they historically had the lowest rates of the banks and credit unions they work with. I ultimately ended up using them for my auto loan, and I used them for a bank as I was in college. Their rates were always great and the customer service was always satisfying. I will say that they were behind on technology, however. Overall, a great credit union to work with.

Georgia's Own Credit Union

I joined Georgia's Own Credit Union about 20 years ago hoping for good interest rates but their rates are about the same as most lending institutions. I also liked the fact that you didn't have to carry a minimum in your checking but they changed that a couple months ago and I never saw a notice about it and only realized it when I logged into my account.
