HISTORY OF THE CREDIT UNION

Knoxville Law Enforcement Federal Credit Union was chartered in February of 1957, and at that time only required a cigar box and ledger cards to operate. A handshake was about all it took to be granted a loan, and thus the credit union began it’s journey. The credit union continues to grow with over $29,000,000.00 in assets while continuing to provide the same personal, friendly service offered in 1957.  Our goal is to be our members’ full service financial institution.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PROCEDURES FOR OPENING A NEW ACCOUNT

To help the Government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal Law requires all Financial Institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account.

What this means for you: When you open an account, we will ask for your Name, Address, Date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you.  We may also ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents.
