How do I qualify for membership with RBFCU?
There are several ways to qualify for membership with RBFCU. Common ways to qualify for membership include your employer, place of worship, community organization, neighborhood or school. You may also qualify through immediate family members who are part of the credit union (spouse, children, parents, siblings, stepchildren, adopted relatives, etc.). You can complete a short online application to see if you qualify for membership.
If you are unable to qualify through any of the options listed above, you may contact us and our Member Service Specialists can help you determine if there are additional opportunities to qualify.
Why do I have to qualify for membership?
Unlike banks that are open to anyone, laws require credit unions like RBFCU to have a defined field of membership, which means you have to be a member to access the products and services credit unions provide. There are a variety of ways to qualify based on where you work, live, worship or attend school. When you become a member of RBFCU, you take advantage of lower loan rates, higher dividends on deposits and lower fees.
Can my family members qualify for membership?
Yes, your immediate family members (defined as spouse, children, parents, stepparents, siblings and adopted relatives) or household members (people living in the same residence maintaining a single economic unit) can qualify for RBFCU membership through you.
