There is one other category of membership available. If someone lives in the household of a member of the credit union and are related to him/her, and doesn’t usually qualify to join, they can join.
When becoming a member you will be required to show proof of your identity. Don't worry we accept much wider range than banks do, but see our ID requirements for more information.
