How do I become a member of People’s Choice Credit Union?
You can become a People's Choice Credit Union member by buying a redeemable $2 share.
Your $2 share gives you part ownership in People's Choice Credit Union and allows you access to our wide range of products and services. It also lets you vote at our general meetings and in the annual election of Directors.
You can open a membership at your nearest People's Choice Credit Union branch and will need to make sure you have sufficient identification documents with you.
If you are unable to visit a People's Choice Credit Union branch or would prefer to open your membership at a Bank@Post Australia Post outlet, please call us on 13 11 82 for details.
