If you are already a member, you can open a checking account with any amount – even as little as $1.  There just needs to be a deposit of any amount to start the account.  You can view our checking options here.

If you are not yet a member, you first need to open a savings (share) account.  The fee to open a new savings account (and establish a new membership) is $15.  $10 is the one-time membership fee and $5 is the purchase of one share of the credit union.  The $5 share remains pledged in your account until the account is closed.

    You can visit any branch to open a savings account (also called a share account), which establishes your membership with the credit union. Once you have a savings/share account you can open a checking account. Please contact us if you have any questions.
