Real Talk Center

Spoiler alert, there's no "perfect time" to Live Greater. It's time to do something more than you've done before! We're here to give it to you straight, and we'll be right there along the way in achieving your financial goals.

Meet Matt R. O'Fact


Hey! My name is Matt R. O'Fact, you may call me a spokesperson, just don't call me late for dinner. The fact of the matter is, I'm here to give it to you straight and with its ups and downs, life can be tough.

But straight talk from a true partner can take you from defeated to exhilarated in minutes—faster than any pill, drink, or hypnosis out there. And a lot of times, that's all it takes to encourage you to keep going.

GNCU offers the empowering financial guidance every Nevadan needs to get where they want to go. (Whether that's a plot of land in Reno or a mountain biking trail in Tahoe.)

Keep your head up, your feet moving, and your eyes on the prize. It's your life.

We want to help you live it Greater.

 

 

 

What is Real Talk?


It's a few different things. First off, it means that we may not always have the solution you need. But we'll listen and try to provide guidance and solutions that put your best interests at the forefront. And it's also a promise. A promise from Greater Nevada Credit Union to the people of Nevada— we want to make it easier for you to achieve your goals. As a not-for-profit, we answer to our member-owners, not shareholders. 

We want to make banking simpler, easier to access and understand. We offer accounts and programs to help your money go further. We're committed to taking banking terms and fine print and turning it into real talk that real people can understand.
