NOTRE DAME, IN – November 15, 2021 – The Hammond Port Authority is now a Select Employer Group (SEG) of member-owned Notre Dame Federal Credit Union (Notre Dame FCU). The partnership will provide benefits such as credit union membership, financial education resources, student scholarships, favorable rates, and access to Notre Dame FCU's nationally celebrated ELEVATE fundraising tools, allowing member-owners to direct funds to eligible schools and non-profits of their choice.
Unlike banks who answer to stockholders, credit unions answer to their member-owners. All it takes is a $5 deposit into a savings account to become a member for life. Once you join, everyone in your immediate family also becomes eligible. Even better, once a family member joins, this same eligibility tree extends from them.
Notre Dame FCU’s Lake County headquarters is located in Whiting, Indiana, on historic 119th street inside the Illiana building. Visit NotreDameFCU.com/LakeCounty to learn more.
