Welcome GHB Customers

Welcome, Georgia Heritage Bank!

10/1 Update: As of Monday, October 1, 2018, Georgia Heritage Bank (GHB) is now LGE Community Credit Union (LGE). This page houses important information about your transition from a GHB customer to an LGE member. We welcome you to contact us at 770-424-0060 (Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. ET), if you need any additional assistance.

At LGE, it is important to us to help you simplify your finances so you can spend more time doing things you love. This page provides details about your transition to LGE, accessing your accounts, and a look at ways you can improve your financial future.

We anticipate very little change for you and the way you do business. Becoming an LGE member gives you access to more branches and ATMs, as well as a wider range of products and services in the future.

As a member of LGE, you are part of the credit union movement where profits are given back to members in the form of better rates and lower fees.

Key Info to Know

Your GHB account(s) will convert automatically on October 1, 2018. You will no longer have access to your GHB products, services, or Online Banking after Friday September 28, 2018, at 4 p.m. ET.

You will receive your new account number(s) and additional reminders to help you navigate the transition process via mail. Note, you may receive multiple letters based on the number of accounts you have. Please review each individual letter carefully for unique account information, paying particular interest to account numbers, important Bill Pay details and account access information.

Welcome to LGE Community Credit Union

A Letter from President/CEO Chris Leggett

headshotOn behalf of the LGE Board of Directors and our entire team, I would like to personally welcome you to the LGE family. As you may know,
LGE Community Credit Union has purchased Georgia Heritage Bank. You will now have access to more locations and services, making it more convenient and easier for you to bank.

We look forward to helping you transition from a Georgia Heritage Bank customer to an LGE member, showing you first-hand the benefits of a credit union membership. At LGE, we are dedicated to improving the financial well-being of our members through economically-priced and conveniently-delivered services, caring personal service and sound financial management.

Our goal is to make your transition as seamless as possible. Your accounts will be converted into the LGE accounts that most closely match the features and benefits of your existing GHB products and services.

Right now, it is business as usual as a GHB customer. You will continue to bank with GHB just as you currently do online, by phone, or at either GHB location. After the conversion process takes place, you will have access to your new LGE account through our 11 locations, ATM network, Mobile/Online Banking (including great features like Snap Deposit, which offers the convenience to deposit a check from the LGE Mobile App on your smartphone), and financial services.

In the meantime, you are welcome to explore our website to learn more about who we are as a company and the products and services we have to offer. However, if you have any additional questions, please call our account services team at 770-424-0060, Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. or Saturday 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

I am excited to welcome you to LGE Community Credit Union and I hope you and your family will take advantage of the expanded benefits we provide. Our team believes in people helping people, and we are here to assist in any way we can.

About LGE

About LGE Community Credit Union

Mission Statement

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.

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 while providing members the ability to access accounts securely 24/7 through our online and mobile banking options. We provide complete financial services including checking, loans, business banking, investments and insurance — all guided by a strong commitment to provide a better financial future for our members.

The Credit Union Difference

Credit unions are not-for-profit, member-owned financial institutions with a strong commitment to the local community.

When you’re a credit union member, you’re an owner. When someone first joins LGE, they open a membership savings account and agree to maintain a $5 minimum balance. Opening this “share” savings account establishes the person’s membership (and ownership) in the credit union, and makes them eligible to use other credit union products like checking accounts, special savings accounts,
and more.

Profits made by the credit union are returned back to the members in the form of better rates and lower fees. Credit unions are also governed by a volunteer board of directors who are also members of the credit union.

Commitment to Community

Since 2010, LGE has contributed over $750,000 to local charities through the LGE Community Outreach Foundation. Each year, LGE contributes over $50,000 to student scholarships and programs in the area. LGE employees volunteer over 2,600 hours in the
community annually.
