Submit Your Application Today – Just Stop By The Credit Union, Fax Or Email

  1. Just complete the application and indicate which services you would like to open. If this is a joint account, the joint owner must complete the necessary information and sign where indicated.
  2. Either include an Authorization Agreement for Automatic Deposit * or include a deposit of $25 for your savings account. As a member, a $25 balance must be maintained to own a share in the credit union. If you are using an Authorization Agreement for Automatic Deposit to open your account, $25 will be withheld from your deposit for your savings account. Ownership gives you privileges.
  3. Include a clean copy (front & back) of a photo identification (valid driver’s license or government ID) for primary and joint member if applicable, along with your application. Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each person who opens an account.

WE CANNOT PROCESS YOUR APPLICATION IF IT IS NOT ACCOMPANIED BY THE PROPER IDENTIFICATION


Customer Identification Requirements

In accordance with Section 326 of the USA Patriot Act, applicants for new accounts are requested to provide current picture identification that verifies identity including name, address, and other identifying information.

In some cases, identification will be requested for current account holders if original documentation was not obtained with the opening of the account. In all cases, protection of our members’ identity and confidentiality is our pledge to you.

Important Notices

Third Coast Federal Credit Union will NOT be sending you a text to call into a special phone number in regards to either your Debit Cards or Credit Cards with us. Please do NOT call the phone number in the text message. This is yet another phishing scam and we encourage you to call your Congressman and Senators and ask them to pass laws making stiffer penalties for these crimes.
