Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How do I apply for a loan?
A. First time borrowers need to complete an "Open-End Credit Plan Agreement" and a loan application. Both can be obtained at the credit union. We will also be happy to mail one to you - just give us a call. Subsequent loan requests may require an updated form that can be faxed to the Credit Union.

Q. How long do I have to be a member before I can apply for a loan?
A. You may apply for a loan as soon as you become a member. There are no membership time requirements for loan qualifying.

Q. How do I add/remove a joint member to/from my account?
A. To add a member you will need to complete a new signature card, which you and the joint member sign where indicated. To remove a joint member, all joint members of the account need to agree to the removal, or the account can be closed and remaining joint members may open a new account.

Q. How do I change my payroll deduction?
