Sunmark Credit Union has a long and rich history in the Capital Region. First established in 1937, when General Electric employees banded together to form Schenectady G.E. Turbine Department’s Federal Credit Union. In 1983, the name was consolidated to Turbine Federal Credit Union. The last 20 years have seen significant growth. In 1997, to reflect the broader member base, the credit union changed its name again with the help of their members, to Sunmark. In 2002, Sunmark opened its doors to serve anyone living or working in Schenectady, Albany, Saratoga, and Rensselaer counties. In 2005, Sunmark added Montgomery and Schoharie counties to its community charter. In January of 2020, Sunmark converted to a state-chartered credit union, once again expanding its membership to 14 counties within New York State adding Warren, Fulton, Dutchess, Westchester, Putnam, Rockland, Greene and Columbia counties. Throughout its history, Sunmark responded to their members’ changing needs by adding new branch locations, technologies, and services. As the credit union continues to grow, they continue to serve in the credit union mantra: People helping People. To learn more, visit https://www.sunmark.org/.
