What do I need to open an account?

To become a CCCU member, you need a valid form of identification and $5 to deposit as your initial "membership share" in our credit union.

During account opening, we may also require additional documents, based on the results of your address verification, credit review, and Chex Systems review.

Anyone who lives, works, worships, owns a business, or goes to school in the OR/WA counties we serve, or their immediate family members, are eligible to join (Multnomah, Washington, Clackamas, Columbia, Hood River, Yamhill, Clark, or Skamania counties).

U.S.A. Patriot Act
To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, the U.S.A. Patriot Act requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each person who starts an account. When you start an account, we will ask for your name, physical address, date of birth, taxpayer identification number, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents, and we will let you know what additional information is required to start your account.
