[ Edited ]

Technically, after today would be one business day. Hopefully, I'll get a response tomorrow. A good one at that. I got approve for the CC which means I am who I say I am. If they hit me with that we for some can't verify your identity, I'm gonna fight tooth and nail until they do. Raise hell until heaven falls! I refuse to waste an INQ over idiocy! When i call early in the morning, I'll see what they say, the only negative news I want to hear is that it's still pending review at most...

Re: I would like to join DCU, need some help..

I hope it works out WarJar. FWIW, they have been known (recently ) to deny membership after the cc was approved. I don't know why but that is why I always warn people to get the membership approved before apping. It will suck if they approve you on a CC and you never get it over a denied membership.

Again, I wish you the best.

Still pending review right now currently, they said if they need anything else they'll contact me. They said I should hear something by the end of the day.

Re: I would like to join DCU, need some help..

Latest I should be getting a response is on Thursday, but I think they were processing my app today according to another CSR I called later so it might be even tomorrow (Wednesday). I sent these guys my paystub and they're still asking for one, smh. Keep your fingers crossed!

For some reason their membership department has been really tough lately. I wish you luck!

Re: I would like to join DCU, need some help..

DCU is a hard pull when you join. I started the process over the phone and was told to give a 10 dollar donation to some charity to become eligible. I did that. I am a mass resident but the nearest DCU branch is not close. It is like 2 hours away so I figured if I really had porblems joining, I would make a pilgrimage to a branch. As it worked out, it was relatively easy to join. Someone told me that they look for a minimum fico score of 580 to join but that is just rumour.
