Early Withdrawal Penalty

Credit Union Overview

Logix Federal Credit Union has an overall health grade of "B+" at DepositAccounts.com, with a Texas Ratio of 2.49% (excellent) based on September 30, 2023 data. In the past year, Logix’s total non-brokered deposits decreased by -$271.56 million, a below average annual growth rate of -3.54%. Please refer to our financial overview of Logix Federal Credit Union (NCUA Charter #1999) for more details.

The original Lockheed Federal Credit Union (LFCU) was founded in 1937 by twelve employees of Lockheed Aircraft’s Burbank facilities. Membership grew quickly and by the early 1940s more than 15,000 Lockheed employees had joined. In 1996, LFCU became a separate entity, leaving the Lockheed Martin umbrella. The Logix Federal Credit Union rebrand occurred in 2012 and according to a May 2012 Credit Union Times article,

After a year on the drawing boards, the $3.3 billion Lockheed Federal Credit Union will become Logix FCU on July 9, a name change reflecting a lessening of formal ties to its original corporate sponsor.

The new brand, rolled out in a series of emails to members, should help the Burbank, Calif., credit union eliminate ongoing confusion over membership eligibility, a problem that has long plagued the credit union, explained David Styler, president/CEO.

“This is something that we’ve agonized over for a long time, and I am getting mixed and understandable reaction so far from members who feel attached to the Lockheed name, something we are equally proud of our history and heritage.”

Nonetheless, “we chose the name Logix because it is distinctive, memorable and suggests a smarter, more logical banking choice,” he added.

Logix is currently the sixth largest credit union headquartered in California, with more than 247,000 members and assets in excess of $9.8 billion.

I opened my first of these promo CDs in late December and posted about it here on da.com in early January.

My strategy has been to NOT open this CD with a large amount. Instead, I planned to open new Flex CDs for $1,000 occasionally because the later it’s available, the longer you lock in a 5.25% rate. I’ve already opened another CD this morning just in case there is a large influx of funds from da.com readers which could push the rate lower. LOGIX usually adjusts the rates on all their banking products on Fridays.
