UFCU Opens First-Of-Its-Kind Branch in Georgetown

Georgetown Branch

AUSTIN, Texas, November 27, 2023 — UFCU, Austin’s largest locally owned financial institution, continues to expand and offer its award-winning financial services to more Central Texans with a new, first-of-its-kind branch now open in Georgetown, Texas.

The new Georgetown branch is located at 4409 Williams Dr, catty-corner to H-E-B. Members will feel more at home while managing their finances with a reimagined “living room” approach. Instead of the classic teller counter, the branch's interior features ample comfortable seating, private consultation areas, and financial representatives equipped with personal tablets to meet Members where they are. The city of Georgetown's architecture, nature, and vibrant community inspire the branch's personalized look and feel, including a mural created by local artist Devon Clarkson.

The Georgetown location is an introduction to the next generation of UFCU branches, bringing a modern approach to banking that combines self-service access to popular lobby services with access to personal financial assistance. The branch will feature a 24/7 drive-through and walk-up ATM, a self-serve coin-counting machine, safe deposit boxes, and the friendly service and tailored financial expertise that Members have come to expect and trust from UFCU.

“At UFCU, we’re focused on providing financial and banking services that help improve the financial success of Central Texans, and we’re excited to serve the Georgetown community and help more people achieve their goals,” said UFCU Georgetown branch manager Lisa Brady. “As a long-time member of the growing Georgetown community myself, I’m thrilled to help UFCU open its doors and become an integral partner to this city.”

The expansion into Georgetown not only includes a new standalone branch — UFCU has also expanded to include neighboring private liberal arts college Southwestern University as an official member of the UFCU field of membership as of Spring 2023. All Southwestern University faculty, staff, and students are now welcome to open a UFCU account and enjoy the benefits of membership, including financial health counseling, mortgage and auto loan services, and fee-free access to thousands of ATMs nationwide.

“Georgetown is the fastest growing city in the country, and we’re honored to be a part of this impressive community,” said Executive Vice President of Member Experience Chris Turnley. “As cities grow and change, it’s vital to ensure the financial success of residents, employees, and businesses. We hope the opening of this new branch and the inclusion of Southwestern University in our field of membership will solidify UFCU as a community partner invested in the financial prosperity of the City of Georgetown as it continues to thrive.”

UFCU is offering an exclusive 12-month certificate rate for a limited time at all UFCU branches to celebrate the opening of the new location. The UFCU Georgetown branch will be open Monday through Friday, 9 AM to 5 PM.
