What you need to know
On November 1, 2022, Vinings Bank became Georgia’s Own Credit Union. On May 5, 2023, we will begin our planned system conversion. Your Vinings Bank accounts will automatically be transferred to the Georgia’s Own Credit Union system during that time, after which you’ll be able to take advantage of the full suite of products and services that Georgia’s Own offers. Additionally, you will have access to the 34 additional Georgia’s Own locations throughout metro-Atlanta, Southwest Georgia, Southeast Georgia, Augusta, and Savannah, and over 110,000 surcharge-free ATMs We intend to make this conversion as simple and seamless as possible. Please read the information included in this welcome booklet to make you better aware of key dates and important reminders.
Make for a Smooth Transition
To ensure you receive your new debit card and that the activation of your card goes smoothly, it is necessary that we have your correct address, email and phone number(s) on file. Please confirm that your contact information is up-to-date by March 31, 2023 by calling our Smyrna branch at 770.437.0004 or our North Fulton branch at 678.710.2820.
• Full access to Online Banking will be removed on May 5th. Consumer online banking will continue to have inquiry only access through May 7th. Beginning on May 8th, access will be restored and you will have the opportunity to login to your online banking for a new user experience. In most cases, your Vinings Bank login credentials will not change. A new password will be required upon initial login beginning May 8th. If necessary, any required username changes will be communicated prior to May 8th.
• Please note, you will no longer have access to your transaction history. Please download a copy of all historical statements, your Quickbooks history, and past check images prior to May 5th.
• Your debit card and credit card will not be impacted by system conversion and will continue to work after conversion. A new Georgia’s Own Visa debit card will be delivered to you in late May.
• The Vinings Bank branch located at 5960 North Point Parkway will be for commercial services only. This branch will also be cashless.
Safety and Soundness
The safety and soundness of our members’ money has been Georgia’s Own Credit Union’s number one priority since our inception in 1934, and remains unwavering today. The credit union business model is designed to return earnings to members (rather than stockholders), which inherently creates a safer, more conservative financial portfolio for these financial institutions—and Georgia’s Own is no exception. In addition, each of our individual depositors is insured up to $250,000 by the National Credit Union Association (NCUA).
