“but i can’t join a credit union”

Are you sure? There’s a good chance you either live in an area or work for an employer that qualifies you for a Charlotte Metro membership. If not – no worries! You’re eligible to join via our partner association – the Carolinas Credit Union Foundation at no cost or obligation to you. We’ll determine your eligibility based on the following 4 options:

  • You have an immediate family member who already has a Charlotte Metro account
  • Where you live
  • Who you work for, or
  • If you’re eligible to join our partner association, the Carolinas Credit Union Foundation

Then, we’ll send you a quick notification – by email or mailed letter – on how you qualified for membership (keep an eye out for it within 2 business days).
