Get started

Start by asking your supervisor to sign the membership voucher, also found on the last page of the Volunteer Membership brochure. To join you'll need your signed voucher, a current driver's license or photo ID, your Social Security number and $25 to open your Share Account, in cash, check or via debit card from a current account at another financial institution.

Your Share Account is the foundation of your LGFCU membership. Visit a local branch or call 888.732.8562.

Once you're a member, you are always a member, regardless of your volunteer status. Simply maintain the minimum balance of $25 in your Share Account.
