Two Georgia CUs in Process of Defecting from Federal Charter

Marshland Community Federal Credit Union (Brunswick, GA) and Interstate Unlimited Federal Credit Union (Jesup, GA) are seeking to convert to state charters.

Marshland Community FCU primary objective in seeking a state charter is to enhance the credit union’s potential for growth. As a state charter, the credit union will be able to extend membership to more people beyond the current areas served by the credit union. Also the change in charter will position the credit union to offer new products and services, improve convenience and potentially open new branches in the future.

The Georgia Department of Banking and Finance approved the charter conversion on May 28.

The credit union is encouraging members to turn in their ballots on the charter conversion no later than July 16.

Marshland Community FCU has $154 million in assets, as of its most recent call report.

Interstate Unlimited FCU stated that the change in charter would better position the credit union to grow and to serve people that they currently could not.

The credit union stated that the conversion would cost approximately $20,000.

The credit union will hold a virtual special meeting on July 27.

Interstate Unlimited FCU has almost $196 million in assets, as of the end of March 2020.
