How to Join Ardent Credit Union

Credit unions differ from banks in that they restrict membership based on a shared common bond, or the credit union’s “field of membership”.

That means in order to qualify for this bonus (or any offer from a credit union), you'll first need to meet Ardent Credit Union's membership requirements:

  • Live, work, worship, volunteer or go to school in Philadelphia, Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery counties
  • Be a relative of a current Ardent member, including parent, sibling, grandparent, spouse, child, grandchild, stepparent, stepchild or stepsibling.
  • Live in same household as an existing member
  • Be an employee of an Ardent Business Partner (Company is registered and headquartered in Philadelphia, Bucks, Chester, Delaware, or Montgomery county)

Keep in mind that nearly all credit unions have a "once a member, always a member" policy, so once you're in, the above restrictions no longer apply.

Ardent Credit Union Locations

Credit unions are community-based, and a lot of the time this means they serve a specific geographic footprint.

Sometimes eligibility requirements will mean that you need to live, work, or worship in that area to become a member. Other times, you may be required to visit a branch to take advantage of a welcome offer. Or, you may just prefer a credit union with locations near you.
