Can I 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."

Important Information About Procedures For Opening A New Account.

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 and other identifying documents.
