How to get "in" to PSECU...

Not sure where to post this, so I'm sure you guys will move me around if necessary!

 

I know PSECU offers a "list" of affiliates on their site; however, I'm wondering if anyone is aware of associations in PA where membership qualifies you for membership to PSECU?  I noticed the PSPCA is listed, but no information is available on their site (I sent an email, no resonse yet), and the PA Park system is listed, but no info ono their site and email addys are invalid.

 

Looking for legitimate entry points through association memberships, etc....

Just a warning, they are a pain the you know what to get in if you try to get in through a "loophole". On top of that it will cost you a hard regardless of approval.

Re: How to get "in" to PSECU...

fyi - my  membership was not a hard pull for me. I forgot that i was still frozen on EX - it was a soft for membership - they did have me send in two forms of id with my address however.

 

op - i couldn't find any associations to join psecu (like Nasa FCU) so I got my employer to offer to our employees - we are part of the special employee group...good luck...

PSECU typically pulls EX for membership.

Good fortune daisyduke, and you deserve it for getting your company to pay attn. and join Smiley Happy FWIU they typically pull hard for membership but will also approve checking with the general membership app (if qualified) so it can be a 2fer (for deposit accts) at least.
