Great Credit Union that Needs to get into the Mobile Market

Posted by: hottovix | Sep 2, 2015

I cannot being to say how great this credit union has been to me. I have been to other banks, but LGFCU always treats me with dignity and respect every time that I walk in to have any transaction done. They also take the time to speak with me as a person should do, instead of just give me money when I ask to withdraw it. Their rates are pretty competitive as far as I've seen with the other local banks. They offer a variety of accounts so they should be able to help whoever with any type of account that should fit them. The one negative thing I will say about LGFCU is that they don't have any mobile app available. To counter this, I had to add a shortcut to their website on my phone's home screen. I do feel that they should have an app for ease of use, and hope to see one in the near future.

Best Credit Union in Eastern NC

The Local Government Federal Credit Union is really a wonderful credit union to belong to. They have help my husband and I buy a home and several cars over the years. When my husband was looking for a line of credit to do some home repairs, this credit union was fast to help him get the money he needed. The tellers and all personnel are polite and very helpful. They even suggest doing things outside of their institution if it will help us in the long run. It is conveniently located in town. There is an ATM located at this spot. There are activities for kids to do while parents are doing business with the credit union. I would definitely recommend this credit union to anyone who was interested in become a member there.

Local Governments Credit Union is a great bank for local government employees in North Carolina. They offer great rates on loans and great first time buyer rates for houses and cars. They have some great features like 2nd chance alerts which allows you the opportunity to deposit money into your bank account before a check is returned, as well as overdraft options and even pay advances for emergencies. I would highly recommend this bank to anyone that is eligible for their services.
