Yes! Membership extends to immediate family members and household members of persons who are eligible for credit union membership. Once you’ve joined, your immediate family members and household members are eligible for BFSFCU membership. If you can't or don't want to become a member of BFSFCU right now, your immediate family members and household members can still join as long as you are still an employee or retiree of the groups noted above.
Immediate family member means spouse, child, sibling, parent, grandparent, grandchild, stepparents, stepchildren, stepsiblings, and adoptive relationships.
Household members are defined as persons living in the same residence who maintain a single economic unit. This includes any person who is a permanent member of and participates in maintenance of the household (for example, two people sharing an apartment could be considered a household). When it's time for your family or roommate to join, simply have them list your name and your relation on the membership application under "Eligibility."
Certain organizations, comprised of persons who qualify for membership individually, such as ski, bridge, investment or flying clubs, may open organizational accounts with BFSFCU. If you are unsure of your eligibility for membership, please contact us.
BFSFCU’s “once a member, always a member” policy ensures that once you join the credit union, even when circumstances such as employment or retirement change, you can continue to be a member for as long as you choose. All it takes is keeping a minimum of $5 in your Membership Share.
1 All new accounts are subject to eligibility verification. BFSFCU reserves the right to determine membership eligibility and may refuse membership to persons who do not meet the eligibility guidelines as set forth under our federal charter.
