Join the ECU Credit Union Family
Everything we do is for our members and our members come first! Convenient services with competitive dividends and interest rates are the prime responsibility of your credit union. Your accounts are safe with us since they are federally insured by the National Credit Union Administration.
As a member, you are an owner of the credit union. Once a member, you are always a member, even if you leave your job, retire, or move out of the area. As long as you keep your account open and active with the $25.00 minimum balance, our full range of benefits are available to you.
Membership is open to those who meet one of the following conditions:
- Family member of an existing member

All members start with a savings (share) account. From there, you can open a checking account, apply for a credit card and/or loan, and much more. And once you are a member, if you keep your account in good standing, you’re always a member.
Here’s what you’ll need to get started:
- Social security number
- Valid Driver’s license or government ID
- Your home address: a utility bill to confirm your address
- Phone number, email address and eligibility for membership
- Current bank account and routing number to transfer your funds to ECU Credit Union
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PROCEDURES FOR OPENING A NEW ACCOUNT
To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account.
What this means for you: When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We will also ask to see your drivers license or other identifying objects.
