A Powerful Union
Made in Georgia
On October 1st, FMCU will become Georgia’s Own Credit Union!
What does this mean for you?
As a valued member, the biggest thing you’ll notice is the name change. All of the experienced employees who currently assist you will stay the same at the branch location. Your existing accounts with the Credit Union will also remain the same.
What you need to know
September 30 through October 1, 2021 is our planned system conversion. In addition to the current FMCU branch available to you now, after the system conversion, you will have access to the 29 Georgia’s Own locations in the Atlanta area, Augusta, Savannah, and Southwest Georgia; an extensive shared service center network across the United States; and more than 85,000 surcharge-free ATMs. With any system conversion, there may be some downtime. You will receive more detailed information closer to our conversion date. More details can be found in our Owner’s Manual.
– IF YOU HAD A DEBIT CARD WITH FMCU, IT IS NO LONGER ACTIVE. PLEASE ACTIVATE YOUR NEW GEORGIA’S OWN VISA® DEBIT CARD NOW. TO ACTIVATE YOUR DEBIT CARD, FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS ON YOUR CARD. YOU MUST CALL FROM THE PHONE NUMBER LISTED ON YOUR ACCOUNT.
– You may begin using your new Georgia’s Own Visa® debit card at any time. Please note that while debit card conversion tasks continue throughout the weekend, as communicated in the Owner’s Manual, some transaction attempts may experience denials until the cards are completely converted on Monday morning. Your funds are secure, and approved transactions from the weekend will begin posting as soon as possible. To activate your debit card, please follow the instructions on your card. You must call from the phone number listed on your account.
– You can now self-register for online banking using the “Online Banking Login” tab and clicking on “New User” at the upper-right corner of the website at georgiasown.org. A temporary password will be emailed to you during registration.
You will need to provide the following information during enrollment:
• Social Security Number or Tax ID
• Zip Code
• Date of Birth
• Email Address
The above information is used to verify you have an account with Georgia’s Own Credit Union and that you are the owner of the account. We match your answers against our records. Once you have completed your registration for online banking, you will be automatically registered for mobile banking.
If the system cannot find your account, make sure you entered the same email address that we have on file for you. If all of the information is correctly filed with us and you still cannot register, visit your local branch for in-person assistance or call Member Service at 800.533.2062.
