WHAT CREDIT UNIONS CAN I JOIN?
What credit unions can I join?
Anyone can join a credit union. Each credit union has a ‘field of membership’ – which dictates the members they’re able to serve. You may be eligible to join a credit union based on your:
- Employer - many employers have their own credit unions
- Geographic location - many credit unions serve anyone that lives, works, worships, or attends school in a particular geographic area
- Family - most credit unions allow current members' families to join. So if someone in your family is already a member of a credit union - you may be eligible too!
- Membership in a group - like a church, school, labor union, etc.
At Advantis, our field of membership is based on geographic location. If you live or work in the Portland metro area, any one of 24 western Oregon counties, or in Washington State – or are a family member of a current member - you’re already eligible to join our cooperative!
