Application Process & Required Documents

Becoming a member of WUHEFCU is easy. Membership is the most significant difference between your credit union and other financial institutions. A minimal deposit of $5 into a savings account establishes your Membership and gives you a share in ownership.

As a member, you share in WUHEFCU’s earnings. As the credit union makes money, it reinvests it to improve products and services for our members.

Please complete the online application prior to stopping by the branch or mailing in supporting documentation and initial deposits.

Request for Membership from Employees & family members.

1) Employees are required to produce two types of photo identification for membership in NYU FCU:

a) Valid (non-expired) US or state government issued photo identification such as drivers license, state identification card, US passport or Alien Registration card with photo.

b) Photo ID issued by NYU-Winthrop. New employees receive their photo ID before joining WUHEFCU.

2) All new members must provide a valid social security or other taxpayer identification number issued by the US Social Security Administration.

3)If the address on your application does not match that found on your state ID, we will require additional documents.

WUHEFCU reserves the right to deny membership to any applicant based upon information we receive while performing a third party credit reference or comparisons to government watch lists including, but not limited to the Office of Foreign Asset Control (OFAC). Membership may also be denied if the legitimacy of any of the above types of identification is in doubt.


Once you become a member, individuals in your family are eligible for lifetime membership. In addition, ANY individual at your household is also eligible for membership. Family members/household members of individuals who qualify for membership may also join WUHEFCU. In addition to the photo identification requirements described above, information regarding the qualified individual may be requested.

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 or other identifying documents.
