Had a similar hassle when my wife and I signed up.
My sister-in-law is retired marines and she helped us become members by providing us with her access number. As far as we were concerned, we were eligible for membership. We established a joint checking and savings account and my wife established a savings accounts as an individual so that we could jointly apply for a refi of our mortgage later this year. After funding the accounts (very small about), I received a call stating that based on my credit score I was invited to apply for a credit card. The next day I was approved for the credit card. (new Visa Signature) A week later, we received the debit and credit cards. Activated the debit cards. No problem. Tried to activate the credit cards. Received a message that I must call in. They wanted to see a copy of my driver's license, SSN card, W-2's, pay stubs, and tax returns. My first thought was this is just to much of a hassle but I quickly reminded myself of just how well this CU treated their customers with generous credit lines and options. A true banking partner, once you have achieved full membership. It took about a week to resolve but it was well worth it.
Hang in there. Provide them what they requested. It is WELL WORTH IT!
