Availability

TEXAR Federal Credit Union is primarily based on residency, with all residents of the Texas Counties of Bowie and Cass, and Arkansas' Miller County, and most residents of Red River and Lamar Counties, eligible for membership. TEXAR's field of membership is unique in that the largest municipality it serves (Texarkana) is located half in Texas and half in Arkansas.

TEXAR also offers membership to various employee groups and organizations (schools, PTOs, PTAs, Farm Bureau), which are detailed in TEXAR’s Membership page.

While the 12-month Online CD must be opened online (using TEXAR's Anywhere Access system) to receive the higher rate, applying for membership in TEXAR can be done either over the phone, or in person or at any of seven Texas branches located in Atlanta, DeKalb, Hooks, New Branch, Paris, and Texarkana (2), or the sole Arkansas branch located in Texarkana.
