As required by the USA Patriot Act of 2001, which requires Armstrong Associates Federal Credit Union to help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, AAFCU must obtain basic identifying information from you and verify that information when you open a new account.
This means AAFCU staff will ask you for some basic information such as your name, address, date of birth and other information designed to help us identify you. AAFCU staff may also ask to see documents identifying you such as a driver’s license, passport or some other government-issued document. In some cases, identification will be requested for current account holders if original documentation was not obtained when the account was opened. In all cases, we pledge to protect our members’ identity and confidentiality.
A recent enhancement has made it possible for us to scan your driver’s license or other photo ID into our system. This enables us to provide another level of security by verifying identity with photo ID during transactions.

Benefits of Membership
Founded on the basic democratic premise of the cooperative movement, credit unions believe that access to low-cost financial services is critical to the health and stability of ordinary citizens. In fact, nearly 80 million Americans trust their credit union to provide the services to improve their financial well being. Credit union membership offers many benefits. Services offered range from simple savings to home equity loans to checking accounts. Study after study has revealed that, on average, credit unions provide the best financial offerings with fewer fees, lower rates on loans and higher rates on savings. And credit unions continually score higher than all other financial institutions in consumer satisfaction surveys.
