Membership Eligibility


Advance Financial is open to anyone who lives, works, worships, volunteers or is educated in Lake and Porter Counties in Indiana.

On March 22, 2013, Advance Financial received approval from our federal regulators, the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), to expand our community charter to include Porter County, Indiana. We are now open to anyone who lives, works, worships, volunteers or is educated in Lake and Porter Counties in Indiana.

And once you’re a member, you’re a member for life! Even if you move or your eligibility status changes, you’ll always be a member of Advance Financial. With Online Banking, Mobile Banking and over 4,000 nationwide credit union shared branches and 32,000 ATMs, you’ll have access to your Advance Financial accounts wherever you go.

We also offer membership to families of members, wherever they live. Family members eligible for membership include spouses, children, siblings, parents, grandparents, grandchildren, aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews.

Important Information for Opening a New Account: USA Patriot Act.

To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal Law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each person who opens an account.

What this means for you.

When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents.
