LMFCU Emergency Assistance Program

As of January 1, 2021
It is our goal to establish a detailed plan of action to assist members who experience financial hardship due to:

  • Government furlough
  • FEMA declared disaster in the member’s local area
  • CDC/WHO declared pandemic in the member’s local area

No one can ever fully prepare for a natural disaster, pandemic, or government furlough. LM Federal Credit Union understands the financial impact an unexpected event can have on individuals and families. Our representatives are here to assist you during difficult times.

For questions and to apply or initiate special services, please contact our Member Services Department at 800-410-0501.
