Credit Union Added To Big List Of Easy To Join Credit Unions - 5/19/2017

First Financial Credit Union (headquarters in Chicago, IL) has been added to the “Big List of Credit Unions Anyone Can Join.” It was recently noticed that its field of membership is open to anyone through making a donation to either SitStayRead or to Resources for Community Living. This isn’t easily visible on the CU’s website. To view the details, visit the start of the CU’s application page. Click on “who can join,” and the “Requirements for Membership” will be listed. Currently, I don’t see any blog worthy products being offered by First Financial. Two products that may interest a few readers include: 1) High 5 Checking - Reward Checking that earns 5% APY on balances up to $2,500 with typical reward checking qualifications. Details at this FFCU page. 2) 1.40% APY 2-Year Spring CD Special, $10k minimum. [URL="http://info.first

The rate looks good at 5% for a cap of $2,500 but I just found out that even if you make a donation it is only for residents of Illinois. This is not a Nationwide Credit Union.

Additional Factors: Institutions with a small asset base, a short operating history, or negative return on assets can represent an instability risk beyond what their financial ratios indicate. First Financial CU (IL) has a relatively low asset base.
