Who can join Blue Eagle Credit Union?

To open an account, we need to be sure that you fall within what (in credit union world) is called our field of membership, or the area in which we serve. So, you can open a Blue Eagle Credit Union account if you live, work, worship, volunteer, or attend school in the following areas:

  • Altavista, VA

  • Amherst County, VA

  • Appomattox County, VA

  • Bedford, VA (County and Town)

  • Botetourt County, VA

  • Campbell County, VA

  • Craig County, VA

  • Franklin County, VA

  • Lynchburg, VA

  • Roanoke, VA (City and County)

  • Salem, VA

  • Vinton, VA

Also eligible for membership is:

  • a current member’s immediate family or household

  • the spouse of a deceased member

Immediate family includes spouse, child, brother, sister, parent, grandparent, grandchild, step parents, step grandparents, stepchildren, stepbrother, stepsister and adoptive relationships. Household includes persons living at the same residence as a single economic unit.

Yep, I'm eligible! How do I open an account?

Joining the Blue Eagle Credit Union family is easy! All you have to do is open a savings account with a minimum share deposit of $5. The word share here may seem a little odd, but remember, we are a cooperative. A share deposit simply establishes you as a part of the cooperative - a member, or also known as an owner.

Being a member gives you access to all of our great services. Once a member, always a member - it's what we call a lifetime membership. If you move or change jobs, there's no need to close your account. We have many services that allow us to serve your needs no matter where you end up living.

  1. Opening an account can be done by visiting one of our offices.
    If it’s convenient and you have time, stop by any Blue Eagle Credit Union office to get started! Call us old fashioned, but we like to meet you face to face and get to know you. Once your membership is established, we can do lots of business over the phone and through a variety of electronic services.

  2. You can also open an account online.
    Maybe it’s harder for you to get to our office during the day, no worries. You can open your account online! However, feel free to stop in and introduce yourself. We’d still love to meet you and put a face with a name!

Anything else I should know before opening a Blue Eagle account?

As a matter of fact, yes. It's called "Important Information about Opening A New Account." Clever, huh? 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- this is part of the "protecting your hard earned money" that we were talking about.
