GreenState stopped offering an automated telephone banking service on the assumption that widespread adoption of online and mobile banking made the service unnecessary.

Resolution (May 2021): Based on feedback from members we have brought back a 24/7 telephone banking service. You can check your balance, receive other account info and even transfer funds between your GreenState products, all by calling (844) 300-3681.

: GreenState produced its first ever Annual Giving Report. The report shows the highlights of the previous year’s community involvement efforts. Moving forward we will produce this publication each year and share it with the membership so that they have more information as to how their cooperative is giving back to the community.

MISS! (Summer, 2019)

Across Iowa communities, outdated ATM machines were becoming more frequent targets for fraudsters using card skimmers across our communities.

Resolution: GreenState moved quickly and invested over $650,000 to upgrade our older model ATM machines and to dedicate resources to ensure we're implementing regular updates to keep our member's accounts as safe as possible. We're happy to report that our ATM machines have not had a skimming occurrence since the upgrades were completed.
