We've never had a more enjoyable experience setting up our banking before. The staff at the GNCU Minden branch were super helpful and explained all of the options available to us. I wish more businesses would treat their customers this way!

I like GNCU because I get a 'home town' feel to working with them. I like to work with a Nevada company rather than out of state based. This CU takes pride in their service and it shows through every time I interact with them.

Customer Service is the Best of the Best!
— Gary (July 2019)

Signing up for online checking was fast and easy. The customer service was also very professional and helpful over the phone. I also received a welcome phone call after 30 days of my account being opened. It just seems like GNCU wants my business as compared to other places I have banked with. Also...4% interest on checking is AWESOME!

GNCU is the cure for the big banks which ail us. I was tired of the ridiculously low yields offered by the big guys and their traditional competitors. Open a new high-yield account today and start making your money work for you!

I deal with many different institutions on line and I can tell GNCU cares about their customer's experiences.

The bank manager at the Neil Road Office went above and beyond the call of duty. She helped me obtain older banking records when the branch was Frontier. She was very helpful and provided the records as soon as she could (she had to work with the main branch since the records were archived). She has also assisted me previously on a charge that I did not agree with. She is always helpful and otherwise does an outstanding job.
— January 2019

The manager at the Neil Road branch has assisted me twice in regards to personal checking related matters.

She is absolutely outstanding! Thank you!
