            Employees Credit Union History

Our Credit Union began as the General Shoe Corporation Credit Union on March 11, 1935. The credit union name was later changed to the Genesco Employees Credit Union, Employees' Credit Association Credit Union and then to Employees Credit Union. Today Employees Credit Union serves a number of Selected Employee Groups (see list below) with members all over the United States.

How to Become A Member?
The Credit Union is made up of members who share a common bond of employment, through association or community, joining together as owners of their not-for-profit financial institution. Over 30 Employer Groups share that common bond of employment, through association, and make up Employees Credit Unionís field of membership. If you are employed by one of these Groups, you are eligible to join ECU and begin taking advantage of the benefits of a Credit Union. Your immediate family members are also eligible for membership in ECU. Immediate family members include mothers, fathers, children, stepchildren, adopted children, sisters, brothers, and grandparents. Once you are a member of ECU, you are always a member, no matter what your employment status is.

If your place of employment is not on our Employer Group list, you may be eligible for membership in a Credit Union. Ask your Human Resource department if you have a Credit Union and if not, have them contact Employees Credit Union today
