Family Member Eligibility

Membership eligibility is extended only to individuals who are members of an immediate family or household of a credit union member.  It is not necessary for the primary member to join. However, it is necessary for the immediate family or household member to first join in order for that person’s immediate family or household member to join the credit union.

"Immediate family member" means spouse, child, sibling, parent, grandparent, grandchild, stepparents, stepchildren, stepsiblings, and adoptive relationships.
