Navy Federal Credit Union - Membership

Hi everyone,

 

I've been lurking in this forum for a while now, and I have to say, it's pretty amazing! Smiley Happy

 

I am seriously wanting to join Navy FCU.  My grandfather, who passed in 2007, was in the Navy.  My parents and I don't speak anymore, but I was wondering if there is a way to get in through my late grandfather.  I've heard wonderful things about this CU, and I would absolutely love to be part of it.

 

Thanks in advance. Smiley Happy

Hi there, welcome!

 

I'm sorry to hear about you and your parents...

I believe you dont need to be in the NAVY to join, therefore you can join on your own, once again , i am not sure,but there might be a criteria , but i dont believe that being part of the NAVY is one of them.

Re: Navy Federal Credit Union - Membership

Thanks, I appreciate the feedback, and I tried to apply online. However, if my grandfather is deceased, how do I go about getting his access number? It's mandatory that I put that information in the online system.

Re: Navy Federal Credit Union - Membership

the easiest way around that is to call them and do the app over the phone. Thats what i did.  They did not ask me for any of his info.(my dad). She had me set up quickly and havent had any issues or questions from them.

Re: Navy Federal Credit Union - Membership

I talked to Navy FCU. The lady said that I would need proof that my grandfather was receiving a pension from DoD. She also said I would need his access number. Seriously? On my dead grandfather? Access number? How am I supposed to obtain that? Seems unfair. My grandfather fought for our country; he paid his dues to the US, and I can't join a CU that I have heard so many good things about.

Re: Navy FCU federal credit union membership

Write a letter to the chairman.. If you have any type of proof include that.
