It’s no wonder that member-owned credit unions outperform other financial institutions on consumer satisfaction surveys year after year.

Who can join Gesa?

If you live, work, worship or attend school in the State of Washington, or are a close relative of someone who qualifies as a member, you are eligible to join Gesa.

And remember—once a member, always a member! So even if you change jobs or move out of the area, you can retain your membership and all of the benefits. For more information, call or visit your nearest branch location.

Important information about procedures for opening new accounts: To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. What this means for you: when you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver's license or other identifying documents.
