I would think this would apply in your case.

My DH joined NFCU as an active duty marine stationed at Camp Pendleton. He had several personal loans with them in 2002-2005, also checking account with them.  We got married, and I called NFCU to ask if his membership was still active.  It is, so basically, he was a member who sponsored me, our NFCU Shared Savings account is jointly owned.

I'm a disabled vet also but that doesn't make either of us a retiree or the recipient of an annuity. An annuity is not the same as disability compensation.

 

So for now I have no way in either.

@ctb89
I have no idea what you're talking about. I don't live with my mother and have not for at least 20 years. The point is that once a person joins individuals who subsequently join don have to have a direct relationship to a service member to join. They really only need to be affiliated with a CU member.

its pretty simple. it starts out being military affiliated but it doesnt end there. if someone in your household is a member say roomate or whatever you can join too as long as the address on your id's match.

NFCU plat 5k | NAVCHECK 5k | NFCU cashrewards 3k | BOFA 123 3k |

Like CreditAddict mentioned, there was kinda a loophole around 9/2010. There was news that USA Federal will merge (or was being bought) by NFCU. So guess what happened? Everyone applied for membership to USAFed CU. Then when the merge completed, they of course all became members of NFCU. There you have it.
