Does it cost anything to open an account?
You can open an account at Members 1st Credit Union for only $1. Since every customer is a shareholder at Members 1st, your $1 deposit acts as your share. This $1 deposit is NOT a fee, but cannot be drawn upon during your time of membership with Members 1st. If you ever wish to end your membership with Members 1st, the $1 share deposit will be reimbursed to you along with the remaining balance on your account.
