Frequently Asked Questions

1. Information we collect
First time borrowers need to complete an "Open-End Credit Plan Agreement" and a Loan Application. Both can be obtained through your on-site representative, or call the credit union and we will be happy to mail one to you. Subsequent loan requests require an update form that can be faxed, or in some instances we can take the information over the phone.

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

3. How do I add/remove a joint member to/from my account?
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.
