Member Benefits

If you're not familiar with credit unions, you may not realize what you're missing by not banking with your community credit union.

Open An Account With Just A $25 Deposit

To become a member of Jersey Shore Federal Credit Union, you must open a regular share account or better known as a savings account.  Deposit and maintain as little as $25 in this account and you will be eligible for the many benefits of credit union membership. If you keep your account open for at least three months, you will get this deposit back if you ever decide to close your account, although we think that’s unlikely.
