AGRICULTURE ACCOUNTS

Agriculture has been a part of Luseland Credit Union since the Credit Union began.  We continue to maintain a zero service charge environment for cheque writing, deposits, point of sale purchases, and ATM withdrawls. This allows the Credit Union to keep the number of types of accounts at a lower level, making it much simpler to do your banking. There is no need for a member to hold multiple accounts when there are no service charges.
