Better Together

We’re excited to welcome our friends from  Green River Basin Federal Credit Union.

We’re joining forces with a fellow Wyoming credit union that has shared values and a longstanding commitment to its communities.

When the process is finalized and Green River Basin FCU has merged into WyHy, our combined credit union will be in a great position to serve people throughout the state. We’re confident that this step will make WyHy stronger as a financial institution and help us deliver even more value to our membership.

Please check this webpage for the latest updates, and see below for answers to frequently asked questions about the merger.

We look forward to starting this new chapter, and we’re excited to welcome many new members into WyHy’s credit union family!

Frequently Asked Questions

In today’s world, there are many benefits to being a larger credit union. Having a larger asset base makes it possible to deliver additional resources to members and to pay for ever-increasing technology and talent expenses.

This merger is a natural fit for both credit unions. Like Green River Basin FCU, WyHy is a Wyoming credit union, and we serve members in all of Wyoming’s 23 counties. Although WyHy offers 24/7 remote access to our services, we are pleased to add a branch facility in the southwest of the state through the addition of Green River Basin FCU.

Not yet. Following approval of the merger by Green River Basin members, WyHy will press forward to combine the core computer systems that will allow full transactions and services at the Green River location. We plan to complete this conversion a few weeks after the effective date of the merger.

As noted above, mergers with the right partners support WyHy’s growth and help us deliver benefits such as additional branch facilities and reduced costs.

After a unanimous vote by both credit union boards, the merger has received approval by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), our federal regulator.

Assuming a positive vote, the results will be sent to the NCUA, which will cancel the Green River Basin FCU charter and transfer the credit union’s assets to WyHy, which will be assumable effective September 30, 2021. Federal deposit insurance will remain in effect for all member deposits.
