“Second Chance" Checking Account 

Loyola Credit Union offers those members who have had a history of mishandling past accounts the opportunity to open a “Second Chance” checking account, which comes with the option of obtaining a debit card as well.

 The debit card limit will be set based on data from Chex Systems, a credit verification service used by financial institutions to assess credit worthiness, but will carry a lower limit than the traditional debit card limits.

The unique account is not available to anyone who has caused the Credit Union a loss, or who has been reported for defaulting on a debt of $500 or more.

For more information, contact the Credit Union at 708.216.4500.

Debit Card

Loyola Credit Union's Debit Card gives you access to your checking account without you having to write a check.

It's safer and more convenient than carrying cash. It's a great way to "pay as you go", and there are no fees when you use your Debit Card to sign for transactions.

Note: ATM fees apply for PIN-based transactions. Remember this easy phrase: “Sign you save; pin you pay.”
