PLAN AHEAD. From 5 pm, October 30 through the morning of November 2, our team will be working hard to migrate your information and accounts into Gesa's systems as part of our merger. Our Member Contact Center, Digital Banking, and Mobile Banking will be unavailable during this transfer. Our Member Contact Center and branches will reopen on November 2. There's always the chance it will take longer than expected, in which case some services may not be available until the transfer is complete. Thank you for your patience as we go through this exciting update together.

Education, our passion. Giving back, our promise.
