Why La Cap


Better Rates are Just the Beginning

When you become a member of La Capitol Federal Credit Union, your financial well-being becomes our top priority. We understand that selecting the right financial institution is an important and personal matter — but fewer fees, better rates, and superior service is just the beginning.

Like a Bank. But Better.

As a credit union, profits aren’t our purpose — it’s helping people like you make the most of your money. Our members are our owners, meaning they have the opportunity to vote on certain credit union matters, including the election of our Board of Directors.

We're Louisiana Local.

La Cap got its start in the basement of the state capitol building over 60 years ago. Since then, we’ve taken pride in cultivating strong relationships with our members and strengthening communities statewide. People are our passion.

Joining is Easy.

There are many ways you can qualify for membership. Whether you’re in the capital city or up in Ruston, becoming a part of our family is a fast – and financially rewarding process.

Who is La Cap?

Our roots run deep. Founded in 1961, La Capitol’s first office was in the basement of the state capitol building. But from our humble beginnings serving employees of the State Department of Commerce and Industry, we’ve grown into a statewide network with branches stretching from Ouachita to Tangipahoa. As a credit union, our purpose is not to make the most profit, but to help people like you make the most of their money. We strive to provide you with the best financial services, products, and rates and look forward to cultivating a strong relationship with each and every member. When you bank with La Cap, your money stays local, stays secure, and stays where it should — with you.
