We think you should
come First

Membership has its privileges!

Thank you for your interest in First Financial Credit Union! You’re just a few minutes away from having access to all of the benefits of membership. This includes access to our great suite of Kasasa®  checking account products, great loan rates, and more!

    • You’ll complete the Membership Application

    The application can be completed entirely online in just a few minutes.

    We’ll ask for identification info such as your Social Security Number (SSN) and Drivers License/State ID to help confirm your identity. You’ll want to have these handy before starting to save time.

    • We’ll confirm your membership eligibility

    As a Community Credit Union, we’ll need to confirm that you live or work within our geographic field of membership – which is practically all of northern Chicagoland!

    Not sure if you’re eligible? Don’t worry – get started below and we will work with you to confirm. If you’d like to learn more about eligibility, please visit our Eligibility Explained page.

    • Once confirmed, you’ll make your initial deposit

    If we’re able to confirm your eligibility immediately, you’ll be asked to make your initial deposit by linking an account at another institution.

    If we’re not able to confirm your eligibility automatically, a member of our team will reach out to you within 24 business hours to help complete the process.

    • Congrats! You’re now a member!

    • You will then be able to open any additional products you wish, including our Kasasa® Checking Products, Save to Win accounts, and more!
