This may be a completely stupid question lol but do you have to be in the navy or military to apply for this card? I only ask because you can apply for some credit union credit cards in ohio and you dont have to be a part of it to get it, like the ohio educational credit union for teachers, they let anybody join. I also got my car loan through a credit union and I wasnt even a member of it.


The eligibitity is on the website.  Pretty much have to have acitve military family or have an immediate family member be a member.  There are more ways in

The best way to qualify is through the military connection ,a family member that is in the military,a person(doesn't have to be family) that is allready a member who lives in the same house as you, or an employee that works at NFCU who is a family member. You can even get in through a parent or grandparent who was retired from the military ie received benefits(deceased or alive). I'm waiting to get in through a sibling who will be taking a job with NFCU at a location in the Carolinas. It can be done and once in you can get other family members in.

Congrats!  Do you mind sharing how long you have been with them, and how long you have had the credit card?

I don't mind at all. I became a member and got approved for the card same time, November 15th, 2011. So slightly over a year. some months i carried a balance some months not. I hope that this is helpful!
