Becoming a Select Employee Group

Credit union services are a benefit employers can offer employees with no cost to the employer. The only obligation of the employer to the credit union is the willingness to provide payroll deduction or direct deposit for those employees who desire credit union membership. No company is too large or too small to be eligible for this offer.

As a Select Employee Group of Louisiana Central you will be offering your employees a wide range of financial services and products with lower fees, lower loan rates, and higher interest on savings accounts than most financial institutions.

Orientations can be scheduled and conducted on-site for your convenience.
