A Message from the President and CEO

We asked, you responded and we listened. You wanted more control of your financial picture. You wanted more convenience and access to services that gave you flexibility.  You wanted more options for personal banking, small businesses and nonprofit organizations. 

We are raising the bar to further benefit you and your family. SECNY today is an online/mobile credit union providing the latest remote banking experience. Considering all the things one can do on the SECNY mobile app, you won’t need to go anywhere else. Yes, we still have branches and plan on growing our physical branch network.

RECENT UPDATES FOR 2020:

COVID Response. Despite the challenges COVID brought to all areas of life, we adapted with health and safety protocols at the forefront.

  • Main Office stayed open. Branches deployed modified access, answered calls, maintained drive-thru and in-person appointments to address your needs.
  • We worked from our offices and we worked remotely. Our staff was and is there, still focused on providing for members and their families.
  • We waived fees, deferred loan and mortgage payments, lowered rates and created new assistance-based services with even lower rates.

Green Loans for Solar Panel and Energy Storage projects, Electric Vehicles, Charging Stations and Electric Bicycles were launched in June.

Zelle® has Arrived! Pay People with Zelle- Send money to or request money from anyone in the U.S. with a mobile phone or email address.  Zelle is available for members to use through Online Banking or the SECNY Mobile App.

eReceipts! Make a transaction through the night deposit, mail or in-person and you may now receive an eReceipt sent to your email address confirming the transaction. A paper receipt for in-person transactions will still be available if preferred.

Online Account Opening is available! We call it CIAO (Contactless Initial Account Opening) and it is our latest unique way to welcome new members to SECNY.  Join the credit union remotely with the ability to apply to open a savings account, checking account and/or debit card and confirm your account opening via video meeting-no physical trip to a branch required. Want to start the process online, but finish in person?  No problem! Our friendly staff will help you complete it on your terms.

It's Here... MOBILE DEPOSIT.  A long time coming and will finally be here. Take a picture of your check using the SECNY Mobile App on your device and deposit it directly to your account. It’s convenient and it’s FREE. The SECNY Mobile App makes it easy to navigate and gives you full control over how your money is managed and spent.

COMING 4th QUARTER- Expanded ATM Network to 100,000+ surcharge-free ATMs locally and across the country.

SECNY is federally insured and one of the safest financial institutions in the country. Our lending quality is a leader in the industry. But what are the things we hear you love most? That you are treated like family, warmly welcomed in our branches and the sense of comfort when speaking to one of our employees on the phone.

It takes much more to bring you the credit union you enjoy today. It takes talented and creative people to bring our business to life every day. People who strive to do great things and deliver amazing results. What makes us better is the personal touch. The common thread we all share here? The values.

Your home is our home. We are Central New York.

On behalf of the entire Volunteer Board of Directors, Volunteer Committees and Employees of SECNY, we thank you for your continued membership and support!
