Who we are

Global Credit Union is one of the largest credit unions in the United States. We serve more than 750,000 members across the country and around the world. Our mission is to improve the financial wellbeing of our members and the communities we serve.

It's the people who make a difference in our communities. That's why we return 100% of our profits to members in the form of low rates, less fees, and better financial services.

NSF? No such fee

We’ve completely eliminated non-sufficient funds fees—because we believe you shouldn’t be penalized for accidently going over your account balance.

Want the ability to overdraft when needed? Opt-in to overdraft services and use your Savings, Money Market, or a line of credit as back-up—for a onetime fee of $25 if you have a negative account balance at the end of the day.

Open an account

Early payday

You’ve earned it, so you shouldn’t have to wait for it. Having direct deposit with Global means you can access your money up to 3 days early.

Still need to set up direct deposit? It’s easy:

1. Sign in to your account online
2. Click the Account Services tab
3. Select ClickSWITCH to get started


On call 24/7

Our 24/7/365 Member Service Center is entirely staffed by U.S. based employees, because we know how important it is to be able to talk to an actual person. When we say 24/7, we mean it—we’re even here on holidays.

ATMs just about everywhere

Members have access to more than 55,000 surcharge free ATMs—many located in convenient retail locations like CVS and Walgreens.

We have a long tradition of giving back to the communities that have welcomed us as neighbors. Since 2003, the Global Credit Union Foundation has given more than $4 million to organizations that provide need-based services to children, veterans, active-duty members of the military and their families, and local food banks and pantries. With the credit union’s assistance, the Foundation keeps operating expenses to less than 1%—the vast majority goes into the community.

None of this would be possible without the generous contributions of Global members.
