We have a winner!

Congratulations to our $25,000 Home Makeover Sweepstakes winner Susan Geerling!!! Sue was surprised, amazed and very excited to have won…she and her husband Mike had been planning on some home improvements a while back but ended up helping out a family member so they put off the home improvements…until now. She was randomly drawn out of 201,434 entries! Sue is an LMCU member and lives in Grand Rapids.

Skip-A-Payment is now twice as nice

Cash getting a little tight for the summer months? Take advantage of LMCU’s Skip-A-Payment program. It allows you to skip a regular monthly loan payment for a low $25 fee. You can skip two payments in any calendar year (but not two in a row).

And it’s never been easier using Online Banking:

  1. Log on to Online banking.
  2. Click on the “Other Services” tab.
  3. Click the “Skip your loan payment” option.
  4. Select the loans that are eligible and that you would like to skip.

You can also print out a form using a link on our home page, or visit any branch for assistance.

*Requirements: Mortgages, Home Equity Loans, Credit Cards, Lines of Credit cannot be skipped. All loans must be current to qualify. Lake Michigan Credit Union reserves the right to determine your eligibility for this promotion.
