Even though Apple FCU website indicates you can join without being in-state if you belong to one of their supported organizations, they currently are not accepting out of state applications. Didn't find out until after calling to confirm receipt of application.

Cute! :-) Should've done a $314 minimum though, to go with the theme.

Re: Easy membership
I received this response to my "Contact Us" email inquiry:

Q: Is credit union membership open to members of the National PTA and other organizations on your eligibility list, or is it restricted to employees only?
A: Membership is limited to the employees of the organizations listed on the eligibility list.

Has anyone had a different experience?
