How to Join Lafayette Federal 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 Lafayette Federal Credit Union's membership requirements:

  • live in Maryland, Washington, D.C., or Virginia and are a member of the American Consumer Council (ACC)
  • are employed by an agency or company within Lafayette Federal's approved field of membership
  • are employed by DXC or CSRA
  • live or work in the Potomac, MD area
  • live, work, worship or attend school in Washington, D.C.
  • are an immediate family member of a current Lafayette Federal member
  • are a member of the Home Ownership Financial Literacy Council

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.
