Am I eligible to join?

There are multiple ways to qualify for Velocity Credit Union membership. If you match any of the following criteria, you’re good to go:

  • Become a member of the Paramount Theater alliance with a one-time donation of $10.00. We’ll take care of the donation as part of the account opening process.
  • Live or work within a 10-mile radius of any Velocity branch or ATM

  • Are part of one of our many sponsoring employers and organizations

You can remain a member until your accounts are closed, even if you change jobs or move away.
