Opening an account is easy.
To be eligible to join First Pioneers FCU you must meet any of the following common bond criteria:
• Live, work, worship, or attend school in Lafayette Parish, Acadia Parish, St. Martin Parish, Vermilion Parish, Iberia Parish, Louisiana
• Immediate family of current First Pioneers FCU members (parents, children, grandchildren, and siblings)
• Select Employer Group – Employees and retirees of companies that partner with First Pioneers FCU are eligible for membership. We call these companies Select Employee Groups (SEGs).
You can either fill out an application online or come into the credit union. To open your account, click on applications and we will get the process started. Once processed you will receive your membership card within 5-7 business days. Once a member has opened an account, all close personal relatives of that member are eligible for membership too. Close personal relatives are defined as spouses, parents, grandparents, children, grandchildren, and siblings. Think about your family tree and consider which of your relatives might benefit from credit union membership.
First Pioneers Federal Credit Union also allows minors to have accounts. These accounts are often used to accumulate money for educational needs of children.
We also allow members to open accounts for their small, closely held business. They may also open accounts for associations (PTA, civic club, professional, etc.) to which they belong.
If your work is not one of our SEGs….call us…we will be happy to set up an appointment and share the benefits of becoming a SEG!
