Step 1

Send us a letter on your company's letterhead expressing your desire to join our Credit Union. You may use the sample printed below.

Step 2

If your company has more than 500 employees, please include specific details in your letter why it is not feasible for you to form your own credit union.

Once we receive your request we will contact you to proceed with Board and National Credit Union Association approval, which takes about four to six weeks. We will then arrange a mutually convenient time to meet with your company representatives to review orientation procedures. We will also meet with your payroll department to review the process associated with Payroll Deduction and/or Direct Deposit.
