About Us

You asked for “a credit union near me.” You’re getting convenience, better rates and lower fees.

At Landmark Credit Union, we live by the words “You’re worth more here.” As a not-for-profit financial cooperative, we return profits to our members, who enjoy better rates and lower fees on a full range of straightforward financial options. A credit union is owned by its members, rather than stockholders. By choosing Landmark, you’ll save money, and have more for the things that really matter.

Landmark is a member of CO-OP Shared Branches. With over 5,000 shared branches nationwide, Landmark members can take care of their finances at these locations, just as though they were at Landmark. In addition, members can use over 34,000 fee-free ATMs nationwide on the Alliance One network and Co-op ATM network, at no charge.

Our History

In February 1933, a group of employees at Rex Chainbelt Company (later Rexnord Corporation) pooled their funds to form Rex #2 Credit Union. The goal of creating this not-for-profit financial cooperative was to provide affordable financial services to Rex Chainbelt Company employees.

The organization was run by volunteers until Joseph Woelfel was hired as the first full-time paid manager. Over the years, the credit union changed names (Chabelco Credit Union, Rexnord Credit Union) but continued to offer financial guidance along with competitive products and services.

In addition, we demonstrate the value and convenience of membership in Landmark Credit Union by daily fulfilling our promise, “You’re worth more here.”
