In honor of our 85th Anniversary, we’ll be sharing 85 reasons to love GECU. Check back for more reasons as we continue to celebrate this milestone!
85. We started from the bottom, literally!– Did you know that GECU was founded in a basement? That’s right, in 1932, 11 men pooled $55 in the basement of the El Paso Federal Building to create a credit union and help their neighbors. Since then, we’ve grown from the ground up, but we’ve always stayed true to our humble roots and our commitment to our community.
84. 24/7 Access
Our members have full, exciting lives. We work to make sure our services are built around their lifestyles. One way we do that is by providing free, 24/7 access to accounts though our Mobile App, Online Banking, Real-Time Deposit Taking ATMs and more. Being a member at GECU means you’ll always have more than one way to access your accounts when you need to.
83. We’re Local
We’ve been here since our founding in 1932 and we wouldn’t have it any other way. GECU is El Paso’s largest locally-owned credit union and that means your money, and our decisions stay here, for the benefit of our community. When you’re a member of GECU, you’re part of an El Paso tradition.
82. We’re Member Owned
Every member of GECU owns an equal share of the credit union. GECU is run for the benefit of its members, who even elect our board members. Being owned by our members gives us a strong focus on elevating our community. With the power of over 350,000 members working together, GECU is a driving force in the community.
81. Friendly Service
GECU was built by El Pasoans, for El Pasoans. When you come into a branch, call us on the phone, or even chat with us, you’ll get the same friendly, hometown service we’ve been famous for since 1932.
80. We’re Accessible
However you like to manage your finances; we have an option for you. There are branches, drive-thrus, mobile banking and online banking. You can use any and all of these options to manage your money the way you want.

When you’ve been open as long as we have, you’ve had a lot of employees. We started out with just a few part-time employees and have since grown to over 800 employees here to serve you. We’re proud that we’ve been providing careers, training, and opportunity to our community for 85 years. At GECU, we’re hiring.
