GRAND JUNCTION, Colo., Jan. 25, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The Grand Junction Federal Credit Union (GJFCU) has been a trusted financial provider in the Grand Valley and surrounding areas since 1957 and this year expanded their charter to provide their quality, personalized services to everyone who lives, works, worships, or attends school in Mesa, Delta, and Garfield Counties. Until now, becoming a member of the Grand Junction Federal Credit Union required affiliations with particular employer groups or family connections to the member-run organization. In 2020, GJFCU expanded their charter, ultimately removing those prior restrictions for access to service.
"We are excited about this opportunity to serve more of our Western Colorado neighbors," said Gabriella Stockton, Operations Manager of GJFCU. "Now that the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) has approved our Charter Expansion, we can better serve our local areas and help residents learn the benefits of belonging to a member-owned organization."
For 64 years, GJFCU abided by the member-owned philosophy that founded the first credit union in 1909, which is based on the simple idea that people can achieve a better standard of living by pooling their savings, working together and providing reasonable loans to their neighbors and co-workers. Compared to banks that earn profit and interest off of loans, GJFCU passes these savings on to members, reduces loan rates, eliminates unnecessary service fees and strives to provide exceptional customer service.
"Unlike a traditional bank, our services are not created for profit. They are created for community. The Grand Junction Federal Credit Union believes in this community and we can't wait to expand our services and increase our membership in the surrounding areas," said Ms.Stockton. "The new open charter approval is truly a reason for all our members and our community to celebrate."
GJFCU provides the following, competitive services to the community: low-balance savings accounts, free checking accounts, share certificates, IRA certificates, direct deposit, wire transfers, payroll deduction, debit cards, Visa credit card – no annual fee, pre-paid debit and travel cards, gift cards, money orders, low interest loans and notary services.
