How long does it take to process my loan application?

What improvements can I finance through GEMC FCU?

Our lobbies will remain closed but the drive-thrus at all locations are open. Members can still utilize our many online options to monitor account activity through our member portal, send service request or make payments. You can also download our free CFEMC app (available in the App Store or on Google Play).
