With all the NFCU banter of late with low rates and great SL's I decided to go to their website and check if I'm eligible. I answer these questions and at the end it says I'm not eligible to become a member, I thought NFCU is for military people, no? Is it only for active and retirees? I served a total of 12 years (3 active and 9 reserves) and was honorably discharged as I just wanted out after 3 different commitments.
I'm not considered retired nor do I draw any money from the government, do I have burial and VA benefits-yes, so what do you have to be to be eligible?

Have you tried calling in? I have heard instances where the eligibility said you werent but there were other ways after talking with the CSR if you have been in yourself, i could be wrong, but i dont think so

Unfortunately you would have had to serve 20+ years and retired in order to be eligible the conventional route. However, good news! Many have been successful joining this route:
Thanks Baller, I'll call first to find out as I certainly don't want to do something that I will get credit then to find out they closed the account later on.

USAA will welcome you with open arms. No hoops to jump through.
Agreed although I had no hoops with NFCU as of now. Fingers Crossed.
