History of the Rocky Mountain Law Enforcement Federal Credit Union

RMLEFCU History

Saying it was hard to get a loan in 1938 is a crude understatement. Denver police had little to offer in the way of collateral and their loan requests fell deaf on bankers’ ears. Coupled with the financial insecurity of the Great Depression, a way to promote financial security was needed.

Thankfully, three Denver Police officers, Ivan Eldher, Harold Dill and Roy Floyd led the charge for a credit union dedicated to law enforcement officers. The past seven decades has witnessed multiple moves, an expanded membership and a modernization of services – but what remains unchanged is our commitment to officers who keep Colorado communities safe.

Joining the Rocky Mountain Law Enforcement Federal Credit Union was a right of passage occurring shortly after an officer’s swearing in. Newly minted police officers would receive a signature loan for $250 to help purchase necessary equipment. Flash forward to 2016 and we’re the 3rd Healthiest Credit Union in the entire country. While checking and savings accounts were the only offerings on the menu in 1938, we now offer a complete suite of financial products to over 12,000 members throughout Colorado. Read More

Most Romantic Restaurants in Denver

Romantic Restaurants in Denver ARE a Good Idea

If you’re of the mindset that Valentine’s Day is a Hallmark holiday, designed so you spend money on candy hearts and tacky stuffed animals, fine. If you think you show your love the other 364 days of the year and don’t need to be told to be romantic on February 14th, we hear you. However, why not change your perspective and see Valentine’s Day, the week of Valentine’s Day, or the month of February as a way to support local restaurants, treat your loved one to a delicious meal, and create a memory to last – unlike the blood sugar spike of cheap boxed chocolates. Trust us, we know.

Below is a list of four most romantic restaurants in Denver. Each offers a healthy dose of ambiance, normal size portions, and a variety of meat heavy entrees. Have a restaurant you like to support? Tell us in the comments!

Save on Back to School Expenses

Although it’s not news to parents, back to school costs are nothing to sneeze at. According to the National Retail Federation’s annual Back-to-School Spending Survey of 6,500 consumers, the average family with children in grades K-12 planned to spend $630.36 on clothes, electronics and school supplies this year. Regardless of whether you have overspent, underspent, or kept to a budget, we have a few back to school shopping tips for kindergarten through college graduation that you may be able to incorporate into your spending (or saving) repertoire.

Students in any grade or year – Shop out of season. Shopping post-season sales and clearance racks is a great way to build up you or your child’s wardrobe on a budget. Take inventory to determine exactly what pieces you or your kids will need for the upcoming year, and then organize your budget around what you still need to buy. Keep a look out for winter coats, boots, and jackets in late February, and summer clothing in late August. If you have one, shop where your Student ID gives you a discount.
