At LCU, we go above and beyond to make sure our members are reaching their financial goals. We are able to focus on helping you with your individual financial needs and can even provide free financial counseling and education through our partners at GreenPath.


Higher Interest Rates With Savings

Credit unions give earnings back to you in the form of generally higher interest rates on savings accounts.


Lower Fees And Loan Rates

We have lower fees than most banks, which adds up and will save you money.  Additionally, the price to borrow money from us—the interest rate/APR on loans—is generally lower than what you would find at most lending institutions.
