Veridian CU Is Back On The Big List Of Credit Unions Anyone Can Join

POSTED ON BY

Let’s start the week off with some good news: Veridian Credit Union is still part of the “Big List” of credit unions anyone can join.

I want to thank the many DA readers who commented on the July 21, 2017 blog post. Your experiences and first-hand knowledge of the situation was a tremendous help in clearing up any misunderstandings about Veridian and Dwolla.

This morning I received an email from Veridian, clarifying the easy membership requirement (EMR) through Dwolla.

You’re right that Dwolla has shifted its focus to businesses and removed its functionality for individual users. Fortunately, they’re continuing to provide a way for individuals to sign up so we can honor our commitment to this EMR. While personal accounts won’t have the P2P functionality, individuals can still create a personal Dwolla account to qualify for Veridian membership by signing up here. You can also find that link on our website here.

The last paragraph on Veridian’s “Looking for Answers” page now includes a link to Dwolla and reads as follows:

Dwolla’s 2016 shift to business payment services also removed the payment functionality in personal accounts for individual users. However, personal Dwolla accounts are still available to qualify for Veridian membership.

Credit Unions Anyone Can Join

Veridian Credit Union is back on the "Big List" of credit unions anyone can join, and will hopefully remain there for a long time. You can use this "Big List" to find other credit unions that have easy membership requirements.

I'm already a Veridian member, but with high CD rates like these - I'd signup straight away to ensure you get "in" now. Never know what changes occur in the future.

I agree with Sperry8. Veridian CU rates look quite good. Especially the 15-month 1.86% Jumbo CD, $100K minimum. I have been waiting for a short term 2% CD, but doesn't look good at this point. Easy membership going now!

There's other CU's out there with better rates across the board. And, I really don't want to give private information to an outfit called Dwolla just to join this CU.

Thank you. I just joined via Dwolla. Quick easy process. Initial funding via credit card.
