  • International Credit Union Day

    October 15 2020

     

     

    On Thursday, October 15, credit union members worldwide will celebrate International Credit Union Day.

     

    The Griffith Institute Employees’ Federal Credit Union Board of Directors would like to take this opportunity to thank its members for being part of the Credit Union.   In celebration of International Credit Union Day, the CU will have mints in the Main Office of each building in the District or in your mailboxes.

     

    Credit unions are not-for-profit financial cooperatives, so our focus has always been on service to our members.  This service is provided in many ways – from financing for a new car to providing a small loan to get through tough times. Each member has an equal vote in electing a volunteer board of directors.  Since there are no stockholders, you receive higher rates on savings accounts, lower rates on loans, and lower service fees. You’ll find the best deals and the best service, year ‘round.

     

    The Board extends an invitation to all non-members to join the Griffith Institute Employees’ Federal Credit Union. 

     

    With your support, the Credit Union can expand and continue to be part of the community.  If interested call 592-9887 or email us at creditunion@springvillefcu.org.    Visit our website where there is  information about the Credit Union www.springvillefcu.org.

    The Credit Union is again offering their Christmas Club accounts starting in November.  Save for next Christmas with an easy bi-weekly payroll deduction.   This account will earn the same interest rate as the normal share accounts.  The first deduction would be taken from the first pay period in November and the last one for the year will be the last pay period in October 2020.  A check will automatically be mailed to you in time for Holiday shopping.  If you are not a member, it is a simple process to join the Credit Union.

     

    For members who already have a Christmas Club, the checks will be sent out October 23rd.  The check amount will be the balance in your account.  If you would like a different amount or you want to pick up your check, please contact the Credit Union.   Unless we hear from you that you would like a change, your deduction for your Christmas Club account will continue.   If you need to make a change of any type, you will need to let us know.

     

    If you have any questions, you can contact the Credit Union office – 592-9887.

  • GEIFCU Receives Two Grants

    At the end of May, a new security system was installed in the Credit Union office at our new location. The security system is comprised of a video surveillance device and two cameras.  

    The Griffith Institute Employees Federal Credit Union worked with nSytes to develop a web page. nSytes is a Buffalo based web design and web development studio located in Orchard Park, NY.
