Members love Lafayette Federal.

I have been a member with LFCU for over 3 decades and the family service has never diminished. I go back to Patrick, Abbey, and Jack Welty who were there from the beginning setting the community banking standards. I vividly remember they were always there for the customer. No question was too small and they always answered your phone call. Working with Jermaine and Alieu has been nothing short of outstanding. To that end, I am clear that they continue to maintain the standards and level of customer service that the above-mentioned LFCU luminaries committed to over three decades ago. With mortgage rates so competitive, I did have a competing offer on a 30-year fix mortgage, but chose to stay with the LFCU family because of the great customer service.
