Membership in Five Simple Steps
Your gift can be obtained quickly and easily at any credit union branch or call center in just FIVE simple steps:
STEP #1: Contact a credit union member service representative by phone or in person and ask for a membership application, or you can download a membership application from your credit union’s website.
STEP #2: Fill out the application for whom you are planning to give the gift of membership. Do not date or sign the application.
STEP #3: Make out a check payable to the credit union for the one-time membership fee.
STEP #4: Put the check and the application in a special envelope and give it to your family member or co-worker as a gift.
STEP #5: Instruct the recipient of your gift that to start accessing membership privileges, he/she must sign and date the membership application (providing identification as well), and return it to the credit union with the membership fee check by mail or in person.
