Experience a better way to bank.

You deserve to experience the Credit Union Difference.

Lorain County has trusted CommStar Credit Union to provide its residents with dependable products and services with a uniquely personal touch since 1938. Offering a locally-based option versus the “one-size-fits-most” mentality of banks, not-for-profit CommStar Credit Union boasts services tailored to its members’ needs. CommStar does not pay shareholders or a board of directors, allowing it to offer the same types of services as banks but at generally lower costs. This also translates to lower interest rates on loans and for higher dividends paid to members. Membership is open to anyone who lives, works, worships, or attends school in Lorain County. With three convenient branch locations in Elyria, Avon, and Lorain, we want you to Love Where You Bank!
