Re: HELP - Need assistance getting into Navy Federal CU.

So dont listen to all the nonesense about your account being terminated if you join through the Navy League. I was accepted myself and the customer service reps were very aware of this form of eligibility. Its not a scam or some shady thing ppl are doing to snaek in. Its just not well known. But there are other CU that have other ways to join if you donate or join a club aswell. People want to scare you from doing it for whatever reason but its just hot air. I do recommend that after you apply you continue to donate to the Navy League. Its the least we can do considering we didnt join the actual Navy and they are allowing its members to join. Hope this helps.
