Who Can Join


Joining is easy!

All faculty, staff members, and employees of approved educational and related institutions located within Berks, Bucks, Carbon, Lehigh, Montgomery, Northampton & Schuylkill Counties are eligible to join the credit union. We will need proof of identification to open any membership account with the credit union. Acceptable identification would be an unexpired government-issued photo identification with your current address and your social security number. To open an account for a child, you need to have their social security number. To become a member, you must open a share savings account. This is your “share” in the credit union. Deposit and maintain as little as $5.00 in this account and you’re immediately eligible for the many benefits of credit union membership.

Once you become a member, your family members may also join the credit union. Parents, children, grandparents, sisters, brothers, grandchildren, step-parents, step-children, and in-laws are all eligible.

You’re welcome to remain a credit union member for life, regardless of whether you move, change jobs, or retire. You can access your accounts by mail, fax, phone, “ART” Audio Response Teller, e-Tran online banking, and at thousands of nationwide STAR/PLUS or Allpoint automated teller machines (ATMs). If your lifestyle does change, call or visit the credit union. We’ll show you how easy it is to continue to enjoy a lifetime of money-saving financial benefits.
