Once a Member, Always a Member

As long as a Member maintains a $25.00 balance in their Share Savings Account, and remains a Member in good standing – they are a Member for life! Even if they change jobs, retire or relocate to another state. A Member’s immediate family is encouraged to join GE Credit Union. An immediate family member is defined as a spouse, child, stepchild, sibling or parent.

History

GE Credit Union was first organized in 1940 when a group of General Electric Employees at the Bridgeport, Connecticut facility organized the General Electric Conduit and Wire Credit Union. Over the next 74 years, GE Credit Union has continued to adopt new technologies, products, and services in order to best meet the needs of our members.

In 1985, the name of the credit union was changed to General Electric Employees Federal Credit Union and a new logo was introduced. After this change, GE Credit Union began adding more products and services such as Online Banker and Bill Payer, CALL 24 phone service, and numerous account types.

In 2014, we updated our name to GE Credit Union and introduced a new look and feel. Despite the change to our name and look, we will continue to provide you with great, member focused service. Your money. Your dreams. Our commitment.
