How Do I Join?

Becoming a member is easy...

Stop by one of our branches and meet with a Member Service Representative to complete our Membership Application. Please bring with you:

  1. $10.00 ($5.00 one-time membership fee and $5.00 initial deposit to your account)
  2. Proof of eligibility (employee badge, membership card, student id, etc.)
  3. Your social security number
  4. Your identification (current state issued driver’s license or identification, passport, US Military ID)

Please note: If the address on your ID does not match your current address, we will also need “proof of residency” documentation showing your current address. Acceptable documents include a utility bill such as gas, water, electric, phone, cable, or your auto insurance card, pay stub, vehicle registration, or apartment lease agreement.

All members start with a savings (share) account. From there, you can open a checking account, apply for a credit card and/or loan, and much more. And once you are a member, if you keep your account in good standing, you’re always a member.
