I don't understand why I have to be a member. I just want to open an account.
The advantage to being a credit union member over being a bank customer is that as a member, you are also part owner of the credit union. You are actually part of a not for profit cooperative group of members who each own one share. This means the profits go back to you - the owners - in the form of lower fees and more competitive rates. See more about the credit union difference.
I've given you my email in my application, what will you do with my email address?
When can I start making deposits?
Immediately after you completed opening your account.
