Way back in 1935, this country was going through a pretty tough depression, and the employees of the Norco Shell Oil Refinery were looking for a better way to make deposits and apply for loans. The result was a member-run credit union. Nearly 80 years later, Louisiana Federal Credit Union still upholds a central mission: to provide affordable financial solutions to hard-working people like you. Whether you're trying to purchase a home of your own or simply looking for the most profitable way to manage your accounts, we offer time-tested advice and workable solutions to help you get there. We started with the vision of a handful of dedicated people—now we've grown into a thriving, competitive financial institution serving more than 26,000 members in the River Parish area.
Nope. We might look like a bank and smell like a bank, but at the heart of our credit union, there's a big difference: as a member you're actually an owner, rather than a customer. Instead of paying stockholders, we empower a member-elected Board of Directors to represent the voice of our members. Every red cent of profit we make, we put back into the credit union.
We invest our earnings in the most profitable way possible—in you, our family of members. This means lower fees for your accounts and better rates on loans. Even better, as a member, you have a say in how your credit union is run. Best of all, you join a supportive financial family with a long history of finding solutions for people just like you.
