Georgia's Own was founded in 1934 by a group of telephone employees
with an initial investment of $160. Since that time, the Credit
Union has grown to be one of the largest Credit Unions in the state
with assets over $1.7 billion and membership over 170,000. In addition,
we serve the employees of over 562 sponsor companies.
Georgia's Own was founded on the credit union philosophy of people
helping people and is dedicated to providing its members
with exceptional savings and quality service. Georgia's Own offers
a wide variety of financial
products and services: savings, savings certificates, IRAS, checking
accounts, auto loans, personal loans, mortgage services, credit cards,
and electronic services, which includes Online Banking and Bill Pay.
For your convenience, Georgia's Own has a Member Services Department
available by phone as well as a number of Branch Offices in the metro
area, Augusta, and Savannah. Georgia's Own members can also use Credit
Union Service Centers in Georgia and throughout the United States.
We stand for the prosperity of our members.
We Invest in YOU
Our brand is our business. But, we’ll be the first to admit- it means nothing without our employees. We believe that by attracting and retaining people that embody honesty, enthusiasm and integrity, we ultimately invest in the you, the member, and are better equipped to help you reach your financial goals.
MEMBER VALUE Accounts for Our Success
You’ve worked hard for your money; really hard. And these days, it needs to be put to good use. That’s why we return our earnings to our members, rather than a contingent of stockholders. Why is that a big deal, you ask? Well, this allows us to provide more competitive rates, fewer and lower fees, and better overall quality. Basically- you win!
CORPORATE and PERSONAL INTEGRITY is Our Currency Corporate and individual integrity is the cornerstone of our success and the currency with which we continue to earn the trust of those we serve. Sound like a breath of fresh air when it comes to banking? We think so, too, which is why our integrity, both in our employees and as an organization, will never waver.
Our Interest is SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
Our business is banking, but our interest lies in improving what matters to you. Sure, we have lots of ways to help you build a better financial future. But ultimately, we all want that translated into better schools, a greener earth, and a happier society, right? That’s why our corporate citizenship is rooted in social responsibility; in simply doing what’s right. We don’t know another way!
We Bank on INNOVATION
When it comes to innovation, banking may not be the first word that comes to mind…and that’s ok. But, we wanted you to know that we are constantly searching for ways to fit seamlessly into your life; to give you access where you didn’t have it before, and to provide you with service that’s unmatched by anticipating your needs. Our commitment to service starts with innovation, and you can bank on that.
