In 1951, seven Lockheed Georgia employees dreamed of a better way to bank and LGE Community Credit Union was born. Today we serve communities in Northwest Georgia as a not-for-profit financial institution. Unlike a bank, whose profits go to its shareholders, our profits go to our members in the form of better rates and lower fees. We are guided by a strong commitment to provide a better financial future for our members.
Since 2010, LGE has invested over $1.2 million in the lives of those in the community including children, homeless, abuse victims and those that fall on hard times. Not only is there a monetary contribution but LGE staff members volunteer over 2,600 hours in the community annually. Additionally we partner with schools in the local communities through our Partners in Education platform. Continued efforts show why LGE Community Credit Union continues to be a fabric of the community.
LGE Community Credit Union is dedicated to improving the financial well-being of its members through economically priced and conveniently delivered services, caring personal service, and sound financial management.
The LGE Difference
We are a not-for-profit, member-owned financial institution with a strong commitment to the local community. Profits made by LGE are returned back to the members in the form of better rates and lower fees. LGE is governed by a volunteer board of directors who are also members of the credit union.

What does "LGE" stand for?
When LGE became state-chartered in 2008, we wanted to retain the historical component of our brand and kept the Lockheed Georgia Employees portion of the name as LGE. While we started as Lockheed Georgia Employees' Federal Credit Union, today we are proud to be LGE Community Credit Union.
