Logix Mobile Banking App - Lookin' Fresh! And Smarter, too

Posted by Kay K on 11/29/2018

The wait is over. Our new mobile app is here!

Many of the new and improved app features are the result of members sharing their experiences with us about problems with our current app (say hello to Android Fingerprint and Touch ID/Face ID!) With technology improving every day, we wanted to create an app that would not only provide members a better mobile banking experience from day one, but also have the capacity to evolve with advancements in technology.

Pink Ribbon Pins for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Posted by Kay K on 10/1/2018

Nearly everyone has a familiar face come to mind after hearing the word cancer.  Your mother, sister, grandfather, best friend, co-worker…the list goes on.  A cancer diagnosis can often be the beginning of a long, costly, and painful journey for those affected.  More than 5 years ago, we partnered with SCV’s Circle of Hope, Inc., a non-profit charity, through our Logix Community Stars foundation.  Circle of Hope provides financial assistance to cancer patients in need and offers emotional support, while educating cancer patients and their families.  Given their values and contribution to our branch communities, it made sense for us to support their efforts.

Earlier this year, we shared that October 8th will be our inaugural Community Day.  Logix staff will be supporting SCV Project Linus by making 200 blankets that will comfort children who are ill, traumatized or otherwise in need.  The SCV Project Linus chapter was formed in 2013.  Many of their “blanketeers” are students from local high schools, who donate completed blankets to several nonprofits throughout the area, including Henry Mayo, located in Santa Clarita.  We're grateful for the opportunity to help.

Fraudsters Like Peer-to-Peer Payments Too

Posted by Kay K on 6/26/2018

Pay back your best friend for lunch?  Easy.

Transfer money to your sister for your parent’s anniversary gift?  Easy-peasy. 

Unsuspectingly transfer money to a scammer.  Yes, all too easy. 

Peer-to-peer (P2P) apps, such as Zelle, PayPal, Venmo, and Square have increased in popularity and earned a spot as an efficient means of transferring money quickly to other parties.  This method of transferring funds is not only a plus for consumers, but fraudsters as well who are always on the prowl for new ways of scamming their victims.

Let's Talk Interest-Only ARMs

Posted by Kay K on 5/11/2018

You’re ready to buy a home, and this may or may not be your first rodeo.  You’ve gone through the mental process of figuring out when the right time is, conducted research on the home-buying process, and put aside money for a down payment.  Just as there are a number of reasons why you decided to buy a home, there are many ways of reaching that goal.  In a typical home-buying situation, receiving keys to your new home starts when you get qualified for a home loan.  A traditional mortgage may be the loan option that comes to mind first.  With its fixed loan rate and steady payment amount for terms up to 30 years, this mortgage option is popular; however, in a one-size-does-not-fit-all world, there may be a better option for your situation.  Putting aside time for researching additional home loan options is worth it, given the investment you’re making.
