Lunch on Us!
Several times throughout the year, onsite GreenState staff get to enjoy lunch on the Credit Union's dime
Giving back is a big part of our GreenState culture! To that end, with approval from supervisors, staff have the opportunity to volunteer at Credit Union functions during the workday in exchange for standard hourly pay. Watch for event notifications to be posted on the Neighborhood!
Cheers and Chill
Occasionally, as a downshifting opportunity, GreenState staff are treated to a cold beverage of their choice at the end of the workday.
GreenState Casual Wear
GreenState Credit Union will pay for 50% of all GreenState branded casual wear items that staff order. You can access the order site here.
Onsite Book Fairs
Annually we partner with Collective Goods to host an onsite book fair at the Financial Center providing staff with an opportunity to shop and support a good cause during their workday break. 10% of the funds raised are donated to United Way.
Robin Hood Insurance Premium Incentive
Annually, we provide all staff who make less than $50,000 annually (as reported on their prior year W-2), with an Insurance Premium Incentive, reimbursing staff for 15% of ALL employee paid health, dental, and vision premiums, based on prior years premiums paid.

NXG Theft Protection
GreenState has partnered with NXG Strategies to provide all staff with fully managed identify theft research, remediation and recovery.

They will handle the phone calls, paperwork and follow-up for you through a Limited Power of Attorney authorization. This service covers all types of identify theft, even if it is not related to your account.

Staying true to our mission of supporting the financial well-being of our employees, we offer a Student Loan Interest Forgiveness Program for staff members. Annually, we will reimburse qualifying employees for the interest payments made to their outstanding student loan debt under qualified Federal student loan programs. Eligibility requirements are as follows:
Employees must be employed for a minimum of 12 consecutive months to qualify.
Once the service requirement has been met, employees are eligible for reimbursement of qualifying student loan interest paid during the prior tax year up to be the below specified maximums. (All payments made since inception of this program will count towards the lifetime maximum.)
Employees are responsible for completing a request for reimbursement on an annual basis and submitting to Payroll by March 1.
Copies of annual tax forms or proof of interest paid to the Federal Student Loan program will be required for reimbursement. (General Rule: if you have a 1098-E issued in your name, that interest is reimbursable! If you paid interest on a qualified student loan, but did not receive a 1098-E, fill out and submit a reimbursement form, and it will be reviewed for eligibility.)
Reimbursement will be made annually each year in March for the prior year's interest expenses. Staff will be reimbursed for their submission (up to the maximum) minus applicable taxes.
Student loan debt and interest payments for an employee, spouse, or child may be eligible for reimbursement as long as the employee's name is on the 1098 tax document.
Loans eligible for interest reimbursement include:
Federal Direct Loans
Direct Subsidized Loans
Direct Unsubsidized Loans
Direct PLUS Loans
Direct Consolidation Loans
Federal Perkins Loans
Private Student Loans
Maximum Reimbursement Amounts. All payments made since inception of this program will count towards the lifetime maximum.
