Not done with Navy just yet....

Recommended Posts

Found out that my brother doesn't have to join for me to be eligible. He works for a major defense contractor at an air force base. Duh, wish I would have figured that out sooner. I am heading to a branch tomorrow. I just hope I can talk them into reopening my Visa but that's a long shot. Wish me luck!

The lady at the branch said they can re-open my accounts including my Visa but the security guy was not available since its too late in the day.

Should hear back from her tomorrow. The saga continues....

The wording on the website can be hard to decifer. It does not mention that your family member is not required to have an account specifically.

Yep they don't have to be a member :)

Two different CSR at NFCU told us, that's how we signed up.

 

And it seems to me from reading the various threads from people who have had problems with Navy that it's these types of accounts that seem to have problems most frequently. I suspect it would be far less of a hassle to get the eligible family member to join first, and if everything I've read is true you'd be doing them a favor anyway.

I think it's more the folks who lie to get in or don't work for DOD, then people who have a relative who is in Service.

I thought I was eligible but wanted to be sure. So, instead of setting up membership online or through a frontline CSR I spoke directly with a membership specialist. Looking back on it I'm glad I did.

We did the same thing much easier that way.
