All of your checking needs without all of the hassle and fees.
With no minimum balance, and dividends that compound daily and are paid monthly, your LGFCU Checking Account works hard for you without draining your wallet.
Convenient and safe
Online services like Member Connect and BillPay mean you can access your account and pay your bills at any time that's right for you. Plus you can feel secure knowing your funds are NCUA insured and eligible for our Overdraft Transfer Service.
We keep costs low so you can keep more money for the things that matter to you. Our monthly account maintenance fee is only $1. Your initial deposit needs to cover the first monthly maintenance fee on the account and, if applicable, the first box of checks ordered. After that, the Credit Union does not require a minimum monthly balance.
This account comes with your choice of an LGFCU Visa® Debit Card or ATM/Member Access Card. LGFCU members enjoy full service at SECU’s more than 250 branches and over 1,000 CashPoints® ATMs across the state, or for just 75 cents per transaction, from any Worldwide PLUS Network ATMs. However, other networks may charge a fee.
An LGFCU Checking Account is convenient and affordable. Make the move today and enjoy the benefits of membership.
