Great Lakes Credit Union (GLCU) was organized in 1938 with a vision to create a financial institution that would allow civil servants to borrow money at reasonable rates and have a safe place to save for the future. GLCU started by setting up a desk at the end of the government Disbursing Officer's pay line to collect deposits and loan payments from members. GLCU has since grown, joining a network of credit union service centers that allow members to access accounts at locations in the Great Lakes states and Canada as well as any of the 5,000 shared branching locations spread throughout the country.
GLCU continually develops and integrates new products and services that focus on the financial needs of members. Whether you are purchasing or remodeling your home, mortgage specialists will help find the right loan for you. If you own a business, you can take advantage of GLCU's merchant processing that accepts all major credit and debit cards to help accommodate your customers' paying preferences. Members have many personal banking options and can open basic savings, checking or club accounts, invest in money market accounts and set up an IRA for a secure retirement.
