VyStar announces 2nd membership expansion: Southeast Georgia

JACKSONVILLE, FL (January 9, 2019) — Brian E. Wolfburg, President/CEO of VyStar Credit Union, announced that VyStar received approval from both the Georgia Department of Banking and Finance (DBF) and the Florida Office of Financial Regulation (FLOFR) to expand their field of membership into four Southeast Georgia counties: Camden, Charlton, Glynn and Ware.

Brian Wolfburg says, “The goal of our expansion into Georgia is to improve service and increase convenience for the local businesses and residents who are traveling into Northeast Florida every day for work and play.”

This expansion into Georgia comes soon after VyStar’s November announcement that they received approval from the FLOFR to significantly expand the credit union’s 22-county field of membership in Northeast to Central Florida to include an additional 27 Florida counties—more than doubling their field of membership in Florida.

With these field of membership expansions, VyStar can now serve anyone who lives or works anywhere in the 49 contiguous counties of North to Central Florida, including the four Southeast Georgia counties of Camden, Charlton, Glynn and Ware.

Brian Wolfburg says, “Both of these expansions are significant milestones in VyStar’s vision to bring credit union services to more people. They reflect our ability to serve more communities in Florida, Georgia and beyond, as well as our capacity for growth. We look forward to serving our members’ financial needs and supporting the communities in these new areas.”
