From the release of the very first commercial microprocessor in the early 1970s to app-driven handheld banking today, SECNY Federal Credit Union has long been a part of Central New York’s financial services scene. With deep roots in the education field and a strong adherence to our mission of promoting financial responsibility through education, we have provided creative, intuitive services and formed family-like relationships with members since 1971. In recognition of this legacy, the credit union is taking a “Look Down Memory Lane as We Ride into the Future”.
“50 years is such an incredible milestone. Our story began in a single-family house in Tully, NY where members would often make an event of the beautiful scenic drive to take care of their finances. To say after all this time that we now operate a career center, two student-run high school branches plus five full-service branches with an array of digital services serving everyone in Central New York is truly an accomplishment. It is a testament to our board, committees, staff and especially our members.” says Courtney Fulmer, Chief Experience Officer. “They have supported us time and time again and in turn, we plan to celebrate them!”
We are offering 50 days of anniversary rate specials for both borrowers and savers, prize giveaways, and more from May 1, 2021 through June 19, 2021. Potential new members can even start an account online, using our custom service called CIAO (or Contactless Initial Account Opening). Current SECNY members are invited to share stories or memories about SECNY for the chance to win prizes.
Chartered in May 1971, SECNY Federal Credit Union is a member-owned, full-service financial institution. Originally known as the School Employees of Central New York, SECNY membership encompassed most school districts in Central New York along with several municipalities and industries.
