We saved our members more than $11 million dollars in 2018

As we celebrate the New Year, like many of you, I can’t help but reflect on the past 12 months. Last year was particularly good for La Capitol Federal Credit Union, which means 2018 was a good year for you. We set goals at the beginning of the year, and we did very well in meeting those goals.
