PFFCU Membership For Your Organization
Employers and organizations can offer PFFCU membership as part of the benefits package provided to their employees and members. Unlike most benefits, offering PFFCU membership is FREE and is an easy, effective way to enhance your existing benefits package at no additional expense.
If your organization is interested in offering PFFCU membership as a benefit, please contact one of our Business Development Officers to request information or schedule a time for us to visit you.
To become a PFFCU Partner Organization, simply send us a letter indicating your interest in offering credit union membership. For your convenience, a template of this letter is available online. This letter should be printed on your organization’s letterhead, and signed by someone authorized to make employee benefits decisions, such as a benefits manager, human resources manager, etc.
Customer Identification Program (CIP)
IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING PROCEDURES FOR OPENING A NEW ACCOUNT
Federal Law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account.
What this means for you: When you open an account, PFFCU will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver’s license and other identifying documents.
A minimum deposit of $5.00 into an S0001 Savings Account is required to open your account, and must remain in your account at all times. The S00025 (Premium Yield Account) requires a minimum balance of $2,500 to earn dividends.
