How Do I Join a Credit Union?

To join a credit union, you first need to satisfy their membership rules. Most credit unions will explain their membership requirements on their "About Us" web page.

If you match these requirements, the joining process is quick and easy. The process of joining a credit union starts with an application. This application can be completed online or in a local branch in person.

Most of the time all you need is your driver’s license, your opening deposit and the application.
