Becoming a Member
Joining Peach State is easy. Simply stop in at any of our convenient branch locations to complete an application. Join by opening a savings account with an initial deposit of $25 and pay a one-time membership fee and USA Patriot Act recovery fee. The $25 represents your share in Peach State and is held on deposit while you are a member. Once your savings account is opened, you’ll have immediate access to the other financial services that we offer.

Field of Membership Benefits
As an employer, you have the opportunity to pass along the benefits of membership to your company's most valuable asset – your employees. Offer membership at Peach State as a "no cost" benefit. Once your business has become a select employee group, we’ll provide materials that can be included in your company's new hire packets, attend new employee orientation or participate in health and benefits fairs.
