For DC, VA, DE and PA residents, the settlement is held at the office of a local title company. Click here for additional Home Equity info.

Check Withdrawal Fee
Effective October 1st you may withdraw additional checks subject to a $5 per check fee. This fee does not apply to checks written against your checking, money market, or home equity checking accounts. Also excluded, are internet bill payments, check payments or any checks associated with a loan disbursal.
The check must still be paid to either yourself or yourself and a third party. An example is if you wanted to come to the office and get 2 checks, one payable to yourself and another to yourself and BGE. Previously, you could only get one check per day. Effective October 1st, you will now be permitted to get both, just one with a $5 fee If you have any additional questions or wish to request a check, don’t hesitate to call us at (410) 687-5240.
Dormant Account Fee
Don’t forget that if your share/savings account balance is less than $100.00, has not had activity in 1-year, and does not have any other type of active relationship on that account (loan, club or checking account, etc.), that a$3 quarterly dormant account fee will be charged to your account. To avoid this fee we recommend that you consider expanding your relationship with LMFCU by taking a loan, opening a checking or other deposit account, or raising your account balance to $100.00.
