A savings account opens a lot of doors.
When you join our Linn Area Credit Union family, the first thing you’ll do is apply for a savings account. Keeping a minimum of $5 in a savings account establishes your membership in the credit union and makes you an owner. (Yaaay! You’re part owner of a financial institution!)
So, you’re required to have one account with a least $5 in it, but you can always add more savings accounts to fit your needs. (Perhaps you set one up to save for a vacation or to pay toward your credit card each month.)
What’s the first step? We’re glad you asked!
To apply for a savings account at one of our walk-in branches, please have the following stuff with you:
- Valid driver’s license or state-issued ID. (Expired ID = no dice.)
- Proof of current address. If the address on your ID is not accurate, please bring in a pay stub or utility bill. (Sorry, letters from Grandma don’t count.)
- Social Security number. (If you are under 18 or don’t have established credit, we’ll need the government-issued Social Security card itself, not just the number.)
- At least $5 to deposit.
Each person on the account needs to have their own stuff. So if you and your husband will be on a joint account, we’ll need a valid ID for each one of you. (Makes sense, right?)
If you’re already a member and would like to add an account (and who could blame you), you don’t need any of that. Just stop by one of our walk-in locations or give us a call.
