Who We Serve

August 2014

We are pleased to announce that the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) and our Board of Directors recently approved an amendment to our charter that allows us to offer membership to the entire community. Lafayette Schools Credit Union will now provide financial services to anyone who lives, works, worships or attends school in Acadia, Iberia, Lafayette, St. Martin and Vermilion Parishes.

We assure you that your membership and our business practices remain unchanged with this expansion.

  • There are no changes to your account due to this announcement and our wonderful staff is here to serve you as they do now.
  • We continue the tradition of being a member-owned credit union committed to providing quality financial services and competitive rates to help you meet your goals.
  • We continue to serve our partner organizations including the employees of the Lafayette, Acadia and Iberia Parish School Systems, the City of Crowley and the Acadia Parish Council on Aging.

This is a new and exciting chapter in the 60-year history of Lafayette Schools Credit Union. It is an opportunity to share the benefits of credit union membership and offer affordable financial services with your family, friends, coworkers and neighbors. Feel free to call, visit or email us with any questions.
