Just wondering, if there are any way to be NFCU member, without any military affiliation? Like what penfed allows to do by donating.
Nope, there's no buy-in option (donate 5 bucks) like penfed has. Only direct affilation or through a relative.
Not sure if this helps you, but currently, eligibility through military affiliation extends all the way to grandchildren. And eligibility includes household members of current members or those who are eligible.
Thank you for the information.
I joined nearly 10 years ago by being a Govt. contractor. Not sure if that option bit the dust since then either.
