Unlike banks and savings & loans, every member is a co-owner – there are no stockholders. We provide higher rates on savings, lower rates on loans, and free or low-fee services to our members.
We offer our services to everyone who lives, works, worships, volunteers, or attends school in Los Angeles County, California. We also have a division, Havasu Community Credit Union, that is available to residents of Lake Havasu, AZ.
LA Financial Credit Union was founded in 1937 in order to provide LA County employees with a safe, convenient place to save as well as to borrow – a financial institution dedicated to their best interest. Today, our approach is the same but now open to everyone in LA County.

WHY YOU SHOULD BE WITH A CREDIT UNION VS. A BANK
As not-for-profit institutions, credit unions are generally able to offer lower loan rates and higher deposit rates than the banks.
Valuable FREE Services
Credit union members enjoy the service convenience of today’s technology, including telephone and online banking. LA Financial Credit Union provides members with no-surcharge access to 5,000+ CO-OP Shared Branch Network locations and nearly 30,000 surcharge free CO-OP ATMs.
Owned by their members (rather than outside stockholders), credit unions are focused on people – not profits. Members elect a volunteer board to oversee their credit union; the credit union’s resources are then directed toward the good of the membership as a whole. Credit Unions exist to serve their member-owners by helping them to make the most of their money.
