Joining Credit Union question

Can i join a credit union that is not in my state of residence ? (if i meet the requirements to join them)

Will I be able to take a loan for a car in California if my residence is in Delaware ?

Do i need to apply for a loan at a branch or online it's possible to make everything? I ask this because i found a nice credit union but i will never be able to go to a branch, so i need to be sure i will be able to handle all my requests by phone / online

Yes, you can join a CU not within your residency. People do it all the time provided they qualify.

 

You can app and finance solely online provided the CU allows it.

It depends on the CU. If your eligible to join via a different route then physical address in state then yes.

 

I love my CU (PSECU), If I wanted to drive 90 miles I could get to a branch but they are so convienent online and making deposits I dont think i'll ever have to go there in person.
