Membership Eligibility

Becoming a Ideal CU member is easy. If you live, work, worship, attend school or volunteer in Anoka, Chisago, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey or Washington counties, you are automatically eligible to join.

Those outside the six-county area are also welcome to join through a family member, or, by making a $5.00 donation to the John D. Miller Foundation.

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 help us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver's license or other identifying documents. If applying by mail, you must include a photocopy of your government issued picture identification, which must be notarized by an authorized Notary Public.
