When you become a credit union member, you join America’s largest family, the credit union family! More than 67 million people are part of a credit union. Credit unions are different from banks. Our credit union is a financial cooperative, a not-for-profit business. We don’t have stockholders to share profits with like banks, so we can give back more to our members in the form of higher interest rates on savings accounts and lower interest rates on loans.

A minimum savings deposit of $25.00 is required to open an account. When you join a credit union, you become a part owner, because you own a share in the credit union. We offer membership to anyone who lives, works, worships or attends school in Lake County. 

As a member-owner, you have voting rights and help elect the volunteer board members who help oversee the operating activities of the credit union. Credit unions were founded on the principle of people helping people to gain greater financial control and power in their lives. This is still our goal today!
