More reasons to join ActorsFCU

  • We make banking simple!  It only takes $100 to join ActorsFCU and as long as you leave that money in your savings account, there are no other minimum balance requirements or monthly fees to worry about.  We offer all the conveniences of online and mobile banking, including remote check deposit, to keep you connected to your money 24/7.
  • We've got a wide reach.  In addition to our offices in New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, and North Hollywood, our members have access to an additional 5,000+ credit union locations and nearly 30,000 surcharge-free ATMs nationwide.  This nationwide access is thanks to our partnership in the CO-OP Network.
  • We're a non-profit.  Our non-profit status allows us to offer fewer fees and better rates than for-profit banks.
  • We're a co-operative.  All of our members are equal owners of the credit union, with the right vote on important credit union matters.
  • We're community minded.  ActorsFCU exists solely to serve the financial needs of professionals in the entertainment industry.  We have a closed membership which means only members of approved groups like SAG-AFTRA are eligible for membership.
