Handwashing to protect against COVID-19

Linn Area Credit Union’s response to COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Take advantage of our electronic options

We offer several electronic ways you can manage your finances, get cash, and make purchases. We encourage you to learn more about these options so you can use them during the COVID-19 pandemic.


Your money is safe and insured

You can have complete confidence in Linn Area Credit Union. We remain financially strong, well-managed and have been in operation since 1935.

All deposits are federally insured up to $250,000 by the National Credit Union Administration, a U.S. government agency. We urge members to resist the temptation to withdraw and store large sums of cash during times of crisis since that is when cash is vulnerable to theft and is not insured. Learn more >>
