Why is Great Lakes Credit Union upgrading online banking?

We’ve heard your feedback, and we know that members expect an easy-to-use, modern digital experience. So, beginning November 9, 2021, you will notice that our online banking looks a bit different to reflect that feedback!

This new platform will be more user-friendly with a more modern look. And, it will offer some important new features, like the ability to view all accounts a member is joint on.

What's new?

The new GLCU Online Banking offers:

  • New, member-friendly online banking experience that works on desktop, tablets and mobile devices
  • Top-notch security features
  • The ability to see joint accounts
  • Individual logins for each member to have access to their own online banking account 
  • Biometric login for mobile banking for added security
