I was instantly approved at Navy Federal CU and instantly denied at PenFed CU. Hope that helps.

I am ex-navy, so I qualified for NFCU, but had to join an organization for PenFed. Cost $20.00, don't even remember what the name of it was. It is on their site.

Not that I am aware of. The following is their list of eligibility. See if you fit into any of the categories. A relative of a member maybe?

 

Navy Federal's Field of Membership is determined by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA). If you are in any of these categories, you are eligible to join.

  • All Department of the Navy (DON) Personnel—regardless of location or rank, including:
    • Active duty Navy and Marine Corps
    • Reservist, regardless of drilling status
    • Civilian employees
  • Contractors assigned to DON sites afloat or ashore
  • Officer Candidate programs, NROTC, U.S. Naval Academy, U.S. Coast Guard Academy, U.S. Merchant Marine Academy
  • U.S. Government—Military and civilian personnel employed by the U.S. Government assigned to, stationed at or working at a Navy installation, afloat or ashore
  • Retired—from any of the categories listed above
  • Family—including:
    • Grandparents
    • Parents
    • Spouse
    • Siblings
    • Children (includes adopted, foster and stepchildren)
    • Grandchildren
    • Household Members

Once your family members have joined, they can extend the membership opportunity to their family members, too.
