Taking Control of Your Credit - Free Learning Session
The credit score. What’s a good number? How do you maintain or build a good number? And what’s the benefit?

Having a good credit score will help you save money. You can certainly survive with a lower credit score, but it’s not easy and it is definitely not cheap.

Some benefits of good credit are:
  • Lower Loan and Mortgage Rates
  • Higher Approval Limits
  • No Deposits on Cell Phone and Utility Contracts
  • Lower Hassle Rental Agreements
  • Better Insurance Rates
If you are preparing to make a big purchase, is your credit score where you need it to be? Do you have some credit cards that you have paid off and would like to close? Do you know how that will affect your score?

If you would like answers to these questions and much more, join us for a free learning session, Taking Control of Your Credit, on Thursday, April 20, at Noon at Life Credit Union, hosted by Eric Heath and Casey Midgett.

You can take steps to learn how to build and maintain a good credit rating, plus learn how to avoid the pitfalls that can negatively affect your score. Do you have some credit mistakes in the past? Our experts can help you find ways to build and repair your credit. If you would like to attend this learning session, please RSVP by Tuesday, April 18. Email us at or call us at 615-230-LIFE to make your reservations, seating is limited.

YOU can take control of your credit and your financial future!

Making Your World More Secure… With Text Fraud Alerts!
New Enhanced Fraud Protection!

We are always looking for new ways to stop fraud faster and with the launch of our newly enhanced fraud prevention tools; we can do just that. We’ve always monitored your account for fraud, but now we can quickly text message you, if we see something suspicious.

If you receive a fraud alert message, simply respond whether the transaction was yours or not. And don’t worry – if you miss our text we’ll also try to call you or send you an email. We will ONLY ask you to verify if you did make the purchase(s) or not. We will NOT ask for account or personal information.

Keeping you protected is important to us and we are excited to offer these new enhanced fraud services to you!

To ensure that you receive these notifications, contact a Life Credit Union staff member to verify your information. Please make sure that we have your most current mobile phone number, email address and primary home phone number.

Together, we can more quickly identify and prevent fraud!  

Scam Alert from the Tennessee Department of Financial Institutions
The Tennessee Department of Financial Institutions has received information about a group of scammers who are requesting account information either over the phone or via a fake website link.

If you get a message asking you to verify or provide personal information such as your account number, user name, password or Social Security Number, it DID NOT come from Life Credit Union. We will never send you a letter, text message or email asking for your personal information. If you get a message or request like that – do not respond.

Life Credit Union will only send text alerts on potential fraud requiring a simple ‘yes’ or ‘no’ response.

Remember: Never provide payment or sensitive information on a call, text or email that you did not initiate. You play an important role in safeguarding your information.

For more information, call Life Credit Union at 615.230-5433. We are here for you for life.
