History of Robins Financial Credit Union
Interest in the new credit union was widespread and support developed rapidly. By December 31, 1954, some 1,776 people had joined the credit union. Deposits totaled $72,139 and 720 loans totaling $119,189 had been made. This was a modest beginning for a financial institution that currently has 21 branch locations, over 188,000 members and more than $2.4 billion in assets.
In January of 2016, Robins Federal Credit union became Robins Financial Credit Union when the credit union converted from a Federal charter to a State of Georgia Charter. This allows Robins Financial to offer financial services to family members of current members and those that live or work in the following 30 counties:
Baldwin • Barrow • Bibb • Bleckley • Butts •
Clarke • Crawford • Crisp • Dodge • Dooly •
Emanuel • Henry • Houston • Jackson • Jeff Davis •
Jones • Lamar • Laurens • Macon • Madison •
Monroe • Oconee • Peach • Pulaski • Putnam •
Taylor • Telfair • Twiggs • Wilcox • Wilkinson
Board of Directors
The role of the credit union Board of Directors is to declare dividends be paid to shareholders, approve applications for membership, establish loan policies regarding interest rates, security and loan maturity, meet at least once monthly, authorize borrowing, supervise investments, establish and maintain internal controls, and to plan and hold annual meetings for membership.

Each year an election for the Board of Directors is held by mail ballot and results are announced at the Annual Meeting. Each member of the Board of Directors serves a three-year term; after their term is over they can be nominated and if elected can serve an additional three-year term. Additional nominees must agree to be a nominee for a position on the Robins Board of Directors and will willingly serve in that position if elected, and have not been convicted of any crime of theft or dishonesty.
A Credit Union's Supervisory Committee must oversee the "checks and balances" of the Credit Union. In accordance with the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) through the use of outside audits, the members of the Supervisory make sure that the member's best interests are being served and that the credit union is financially secure.
