Membership Eligibility

Since 1951, Fortress FCU has provided first-rate, affordable financial services to its members. They have enjoyed outstanding benefits because the Credit Union is a not-for-profit organization that is owned, controlled and operated by the very members it serves.

Our members are actually our shareholders, and they vote to elect our Board of Directors from their ranks. Member volunteers also serve as auditors to make certain that our money is handled properly and profitably.

Our members enjoy earning better rates on their savings, borrowing at lower-than-market rates, free checking, and a host of other benefits that help them to achieve financial security, now and in the future. Consider the many services available to our members. You’ll see why we say, “The Smart Money is at the Credit Union!”

Membership in the Credit Union is open to anyone who lives or works in Grant County, Indiana, and their immediate families.

A $5 deposit will open your share savings account, making you eligible for all the benefits and privileges of membership – higher earnings on savings, lower rates on loans, free checking and much more.

Once you are a member of the Credit Union, you remain a member even if you move out of the area.

Is your family a part of our Credit Union family?

Did you know that all the members of your immediate family or household are eligible to join Fortress FCU? A member of your immediate family is defined as a “spouse, child, sibling, parent, grandparent or grandchild.” This also includes stepparents, stepchildren, step-siblings and adoptive relationships. Household is defined to include persons living in the same residence who maintain a single economic unit. This includes anyone who is a permanent member of, and helps maintain, the household.

Do your family members a favor and bring them in to open their own accounts today!
