Genisys Credit Union awarded first place on the Forbes Best-In-State Credit Unions 2022 List

AUBURN HILLS, MI (June 22, 2022) — Genisys Credit Union has been awarded first place on the Forbes list of Best-In-State Credit Unions 2022 for Michigan. This is the third year in a row that the credit union has been recognized on the list.

“Receiving recognition from Forbes as a Best Credit Union affirms our continued efforts to provide service excellence for our members,” said Jackie Buchanan, President & CEO of Genisys Credit Union. “Through personalized services, tailored products, and competitive rates, we work to create an environment where members can focus on their financial health in a way that works for them. We sincerely thank all who make Genisys their credit union of choice.”

Forbes partnered with market research firm, Statista, to survey 26,000 US consumers who were asked to rate credit unions at which they have or previously have had checking accounts. Participants made recommendations regarding overall satisfaction; they also assessed banks in the following areas: trust, terms & conditions, branch services, digital services, customer service, and financial advice.

Built on the principle of putting members first, Genisys Credit Union gives back with their Genius High Yield Checking, which pays members 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. “By growing their savings, this program aims to help our youngest members learn the importance of financial literacy in reaching their financial goals,” said Buchanan.

They also have a mission to invest in the success and vibrancy of their communities by focusing on financial education and community giveback. “A cornerstone of community action lies in giving back,” said Buchanan. “We focus on upholding the role of community partner by ensuring each branch in our footprint is supported based on the area’s unique needs, positively impacting the well-being of our community members.”

The credit union partners with local organizations to support events for community members to attend at little or no cost, brings Reality Fairs to schools for students to get hands-on experience with budgeting & financial wellness, raises funds for non-profit organizations like Lighthouse and the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan, and volunteers thousands of hours within their communities.

With a commitment to drive Michigan’s economy forward, Genisys upholds its commitment to service excellence to help individuals, families, and businesses manage their finances in a trustworthy, convenient, and economical manner while remaining committed to their communities. The team at Genisys appreciates your support and looks forward to continuing to serve you!
