"I've been a member of LFCU since I joined USAID in 1987 and I plan to remain a member until I die. LFCU has seen me through overseas assignments when we still did business by cable until the present electronic age. They financed my first car and all three subsequent cars, including one I bought last month. LFCU has seen me through accidents, in both West Africa and the US, lost storage, home B&Es in Budapest (twice), and many other fiascos, and have always been there to give advice and help. My mother became a member and LFCU staff were very helpful when it came time to settle her estate. Always kind and going the extra mile."
"First of all CONGRATULATIONS to you Lafayette Federal Credit Union! I have been a member of Lafayette Federal Credit Union for approximately 30 years. I have never received anything but professional and sincere service over the years. No matter what my issue was, Lafayette was always just a phone call or step away. Purchased my daughter first car as a gift for graduation, with a loan through LFCU. Also, a second loan for down payment on my condominium. I tell all my friends and family: stop, look, listen, and run to Lafayette, you will be glad you did! Thank you Lafayette for being an important part of my financial life!"
"I moved to Washington, DC in 1994 to take a position with the Peace Corps. I was so fortunate to learn that Peace Corps staff were eligible to become members of LFCU. After a few years in Washington I was ready to purchase a condo in Arlington and approached LFCU about obtaining a mortgage. My previous experiences with mortgages from a bank had been slow and difficult to understand with high interest rates. With LFCU I was so pleasantly surprised the process was much easier, the staff was much more responsive and friendly and, most importantly, the fixed rate mortgage rate was so much lower than I could have received from a bank. "
"I joined LFCU when I was 16 years old as a dependent of a USAID foreign service officer. I opened my first savings account with money earned from part-time jobs. Since then there have been a lot of firsts with Lafayette including my first checking account, car loan and mortgage application. In a relationship that has spanned almost 4 decades, the country and the world, LFCU has supported me and my family with all of our financial needs. Thanks LFCU, I think I'll be staying for life!"
"As you celebrate 85 year anniversary, I commend the leadership and the staff of LFCU, particularly those I've worked closely with since I became member in 2001. I still remember the face of the young lady called Abbey who welcomed me in her office in DC. The best customer service I received that day continues to date with others, Ms. Dawn, Ms. Denise Germaine, for the loan to buy my condo. I cannot remember all the names. I live and work overseas but any time I reach out to LFCU, there’s always a cheerful professional voice that welcomes me and my issues have always been resolved in timely. CONGRATULATIONS & HAPPY 85th. BIRTHDAY!"
"I may be one of your longer-term members. I joined USAID (then AID) in 1963 and in 1964 became a Lafayette Federal member. Lafayette financed our first new car and was our stateside account when we were in India. Later, our savings account with Lafayette provided the down payment on a house, and now our certificates and checking account are part of our retirement. Keep up the great and friendly service! "
