NFCU only for military?

Is this bank exclusively for military personel and their family or can anyone apply for the app?

Re: NFCU only for military?

 

Navy Fed is a CU that extends membership to several others other than military. There are several threads about eligibilty already out - so in effort not to duplicate, plug that topic into search. If you find that you have the opportunity to join, they offer great service and treat their members well. Good luck Smiley Wink

There is no backdoor to nfcu.  It is designed to serve active military and retires and family.  Ome other categories are allowed.  However attractiveness of nfcu has people going to great lengths for eligibility.

Backdoor = ROOMMATE   Smiley Happy

Very simple.  Get a roommate that is eligible for NFCU and have him/her put one of your bills in their name.  You can join with them as your sponsor.  I'll be doing this in October.

Remember only active duty and retirees and not veterans are eligible.  However if your brother in law joined while he was active, he can sponsor you although maybe have your sister join first.
