Yet another NFCU thread

I'm racking my brain trying to figure a way to get in with NFCU.  My cousin's daughter is in the ARNG.  If I read correctly she's eligible.  Would I be able to join under her?  I really want in LOL...It's that or talk my neice into joining the military :smileyembarrassed:.  There has to be a way in for me.

Re: Yet another NFCU thread

I was told you would only be eligible under your immediate family. For example, my neice wanted to start her first savings account recently. I called and was told my sister had to join first, then my neice would join under her. Sounds like you do have a way in, but it also sounds like you have to get alot of your relatives to become members. Time for a family meeting? :smileytongue:

I could always apply for a job at Great Lakes Naval Base, but that'd be one hell of a commute.  Besides I like my DHS job :smileyvery-happy:

Yeah, convince all my family members to join the military.  If I only knew then what I know now I would have joined NFCU when I was in the NG :smileymad:
