Holiday celebrations are a wonderful time for families to get together and share traditions and memories. Often, thoughtful gifts are exchanged, as well. This year, make your holidays extra special for family members by sharing a unique gift: the gift of credit union membership.
Sure, finances are not usually top of mind at a holiday gathering. But these days, an ever-growing number of bank customers will take any opportunity to complain about the fees and/or poor service their bank is dishing up. And when you contrast bank customers’ experiences with all the benefits you receive as a credit union member, it’s easy to see that sharing your membership with family members will be a gift with lasting value.
Credit union membership lasts a lifetime. Once you become a member, you can remain a member even if you change jobs, move to another part of the country or retire. And the same is true for your family members, if they join. That makes credit union membership especially valuable for children, who have long lives ahead of them. Because you’re a member, your spouse, siblings, parents, grandparents,children, grandchildren, aunts and uncles, nieces and nephews, cousins and members of your household can join Navigator. This includes stepparents, stepchildren, step siblings and adopted children.
