I did, in fact, get my information from the source. I spoke to a represenative and she said once youre a member you can refer your family members. Im sure it would never get to the point where they woukd ask for a blood test.
Yes, the representative said that once you are a member you can refer your family members. That does not mean you can sponsor anyone. And you don't seem to understand, if Navy Federal questions your eligibility, the burden of proof is on YOU, not Navy Federal. You will have to come up with documentation that you belong, that you are related to the sponsor or you live in the same household etc. There are a few members of these forums that have had trouble with this very same issue, so I was just making sure people had good information before joining.
JediNeo, you should be perfectly fine joining NFCU. I'm assuming your mom can join because she either served or because of some other family member. Once she joins, you would be good to join through her sponsoring you. And no, you would not have to live with her, thats only if you didn't meet the family criteria but you still lived with the member. Here's the info from NFCU's website on what family members can join:
Family Members—including grandparents, parents, spouses, siblings, grandchildren, children (including adopted and stepchildren) and household members
Once your family members have joined, their family members are also eligible for membership.

JediNeo, you already qualify through your father. Did he have an account with Navy Federal? That would make it easier, but you should be ok as long as you have his personal info/service records and he was honorably discharged/retired. If he was not a member, you will have to call to join so have his info handy. As far as your mom joining, Navy Federal is a great CU so why not go for it.
