Our Story

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.

Who We Serve

Everyone who lives or works in Bartow, Cherokee, Cobb, Fulton, and Paulding counties is eligible to apply for membership, as are employees of many companies. Family members of existing members are also eligible.

Commitment to Community

Community SupportSince 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.

What does "LGE" stand for?

When LGE became a state-chartered credit union in 2008 and opened our field of membership to the community, we wanted to retain the historical component of our brand and decided to keep the Lockheed Georgia Employees portion of the name as simply "LGE." While we started as Lockheed Georgia Employees' Federal Credit Union, today we are proud to be LGE Community Credit Union.

While the letters in our name may retain our history, but LGE stands for the future. LGE stands for community. LGE stands for you.

Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

LGE Community Credit Union is committed to fostering, cultivating and preserving a culture of diversity and inclusion. LGE is dedicated to creating an inclusive workspace where employees feel valued, included and respected for their individuality.
