Our membership is diverse and includes employees from certain federal government agencies, hundreds of local and national businesses, and partner organizations.
Your Access to Credit Union Membership
Membership eligibility at a credit union can be very selective, which is why current members gain access to great benefits, rates and incentives. The industry phrase for eligibility is "field of membership," which consists of a diverse range of local and national business, as well as partner organizations who are employer groups with Northwest Federal. You can check your eligibility by looking to see if your organization is an existing Member Company or Community Partner.
If your employer is not currently within our field of membership, tell us who they are. We would love to help you and other employees and volunteers join Northwest Federal.
You may also still be eligible if you are a member, employee or volunteer of one of our Community Partner Organizations. You can join many of these Community Partner organizations today as part of your Northwest Federal membership application. When completing your online Northwest Federal membership application, simply select the Community Partner organization you wish to join when prompted.
When your organization becomes a Member Company or Community Partner served in our field of membership, you will be provided with a relationship manager to serve as your one-on-one point of contact. Your relationship manager will keep you updated on any free seminars available to your employees or members and can provide you with complimentary marketing materials and content for your publications.
