Clayton and Linda Austin: “You’re More Than a Credit Union”

Clayton and Linda Austin are long-time members of SECU. Linda is a retired state employee, and Clayton is a retired naval officer. They rely on the care and compassion that Credit Union employees provide them, and more importantly, having the comfort of knowing their assets are secure. They know SECU will help guide them in the right direction to ensure their retirement stays a happy and comfortable one.

Over the years, they’ve used a variety of services at SECU, including safe deposit boxes and loans. Most recently, the Austins came to SECU looking to upgrade and repair their family home in Candler. Thanks to the thoughtful and personalized service provided by their local branch, their plans were in good hands as they applied and were ultimately approved for a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC).

“They made it incredibly simple. From exactly what to apply for, to how to pay it off, they listened to us and helped us. They’re friendly people and it always feels like more than walking into a branch. I consider them friends.”

A retired teacher, Linda especially appreciates the level of service provided throughout the Credit Union. For educators looking for a place that takes care of them, she believes there’s no better place than State Employees’ Credit Union.

“I’d tell any teacher to go straight to the Credit Union. I’ll even drive them!”
