News & Announcements

We will be closed on Thursday, November 23rd, for Thanksgiving.

Have a Great Holiday!

The Lisbon Community Federal Credit Union wants to help our members navigate the Equifax breach.  Though this breach was not related in any way to your credit union, our commitment is to helping our members.  We’ve compiled a summary for our members, as well as links and resources to help our members learn more, and take action to protect their identity and information. Click on the headline for more information.

 

When making a payment, have you gotten used to some lag-time between the transaction and the money clearing your account? This will be going away – for example, if you pay your cable bill by telephone in the morning, the funds could be cleared from your account before 5:00 PM the same day. On September 15, 2017, the Federal Reserve will start processing same-day ACH (Automated Clearing House) payments.

Thanks to the generosity of Members, local communities and staff, The Lisbon Credit Union placed 21st amongst other credit unions in the state for total funds raised, and 17th in per Member contributions. A total of $8,000 was raised for the Ending Hunger in Maine Campaign by the Credit Union.

LISBON – January 20, 2017 – After tallying up the figures for 2016, the year proved to be the Credit Unions' most lucrative yet for fundraising…an even grand total of $8,000 was raised for the Ending Hunger in Maine Campaign!

To You and Yours
From All of us Here at The Lisbon Credit Union.
