How to Join
Carolinas Telco Federal Credit Union (CTFCU) offers membership to those who are employed with or retired from one of our current Select Employer Groups (S.E.G). Additionally, members of the NC Consumers Council (NCCC) or other approved associations are eligible to join. Those who live, work, worship, or attend school in select areas of Mecklenburg County or Wake County, deemed underserved for financial services by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA.), can become CTFCU members. Immediate family and household members of current CTFCU members can also qualify for membership.
Who is eligible to become a CTFCU Member?
Combined geographic areas possessing a smaller concentration of financial institutions, not currently offering banking services which meet the economic needs of a majority of residents. Any person who lives, works, worships, or attends school within an underserved zip code can join CTFCU.
Select Employer Groups (S.E.G)
Includes companies from any industry, who have signed an agreement to allow their workers to join CTFCU. Anyone currently employed with a S.E.G. can become a member of the credit union. All interested businesses within CTFCU’s service areas are encouraged to become a S.E.G. partner of the credit union.
Under a Multiple Common Bond charter, credit unions can offer membership to individuals who are also mutual members of an association or cooperative. CTFCU has partnered with various organizations throughout the Carolinas and can now offer membership to persons affiliated with these groups.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PROCEDURES FOR OPENING A NEW ACCOUNT
To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, 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, we 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 or other identifying documents.
