Great Lakes Credit Union has everything you need to help manage your money and plan for the future.
Great Lakes Credit union is banking for better. Founded in Lake County, Ill. in 1938, GLCU began with one goal in mind: Enable civil servants to create their ideal future by borrowing and saving at competitive rates.
At the time, no financial institution existed in the area, leaving local workers without an option to safely and easily deposit and borrow money. The member-owned, community-focused cooperative proved to be the solution, and membership expanded quickly to other unions and communities in the area.
Fast forward to today, and GLCU is still committed to financial access and empowerment for every stage of life.
We know your money is more than a balance in a bank account; it’s the thing that lets you live the greatest version of your life. And we believe everyone deserves to live the greatest version of their life. That’s why, today, we offer so much more than just fairly priced loans and a safe place to make deposits. We offer education, tools and community development programs that make it easy to save, spend and give back on your terms – whether you’re just starting out, a seasoned investor or a savvy small business owner.
Our goal is to ensure that we empower all members through better control of their finances.
