Genisys Credit Union has been voted “Best of the Best'' in the Spinal Column Readers Choice Awards for Best Credit Union. The credit union would like to extend a thank you to all that took the time to vote to make this recognition possible.
“Recognitions like ‘Best of the Best’ affirm our continued efforts to provide service excellence for our members,” said Jackie Buchanan, President & CEO of Genisys Credit Union. “We work to create an environment where members can focus on their financial wellness through personalized services, tailored products, and competitive rates while giving back to our communities.”
Built on the principle of putting members first, the credit union gives back to their members with Genius High Yield Checking, which pays an annual percentage yield (APY) of 4.07% and offers debit card rewards. For those 18 and under, they have a High Yield Youth Savings with an APY of 5.12% on balances up to $500.
“This account aims to help our youngest members grow their savings while learning the important role finances play in their life,” said Buchanan. With support from the Michigan Credit Union Foundation, the credit union hosts Financial Reality Fairs for students to get a hands-on, interactive experience to advance their financial understanding through realistic approaches to budgeting. They’ve brought the program to various school districts in Oakland County such as Commerce, White Lake, and Highland.
A mission at the credit union is to invest in the success and vibrancy of their communities. They partner with local organizations to support events for community members to attend at little or no cost such as the Lakes Area Chamber’s Rockin’ Under the Stars, raise funds for non-profit organizations like Lighthouse and Oakland Livingston Human Service Agency (OLHSA), and support area small businesses such as Green Goat Gifts through micro grants in partnership with Main Street Oakland County.
The employees of Genisys appreciate the “Best of the Best” recognition and look forward to continuing to serve their members and communities.
