If you have $5 to open a share (savings) account and are eligible through our field of membership, you can become a member (not a customer) of a unique financial institution. Legacy is a not-for-profit, member-owned cooperative that is committed to providing our members with the BEST financial services available at the lowest cost.

Anyone who lives, works, worships, or attends school in the 7 - County Birmingham - Hoover Metro area can join. That includes Jefferson, Shelby, Blount, St. Clair, Walker, Chilton, and Bibb Counties in Central Alabama.

How to Join

Membership means Legacy will never be bought or sold and you are entitled to vote for the volunteer Board of Directors, enjoy low-rate loans, high-yield investments and savings as well as FREE checking and lower fees. And remember, even if you move or transfer employment location, you can keep your account: "once a member always a member."

If you are a Legacy member in good standing, membership is extended to your immediate family members.

Simply apply online to become a member of Legacy.

To apply in person, see our Branch Locations to find the office nearest you.

Important Information About Procedures For Opening A New Account.

Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. 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 and other identifying documents. By completing an application, you are giving Legacy permission to pull and review your credit report.
