I did contact Chaffey FCU office today about how to join them (live chat with Chaffey FCU representative). It is quite easy. First donate $25.00 to Baldy View Rop vocational program. Second, pay $10.00 membership fee (one time only). Third, deposit $5.00 to open an account. Here is the tough part: You need to make a branch visit in person. Bring with you your State ID (driver license) AND Social Security card. Call them at (909) 986-4552 or visit their website and live-chat with one of their rep's. They're "cool" and will help you with all of your questions.
