Success: U.S. Eagle Removes Impermissible Common Bond from Online Application

Earlier this week, I wrote that U.S. Eagle Federal Credit Union (Albuquerque, NM) was still listing an impermissible common bond of "50 years of age or better and a resident of New Mexico" on its online membership application.

I can report that as of this morning the credit union has removed this impermissible common bond.

Below is a screen shot of this page.


  1. Spelling aside, but when will we ever win the "join XYZ" to be eligible? Like America's Credit Union (Tacoma WA)
    From their site:
    Membership Eligibility
    Typically, membership in ACU includes all members of the Armed Forces (active, retired, and reservists), civilian personnel, and relatives of these members, as well as select employer groups. If you do not fall within these categories, you can join the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) in order to become a member of ACU. When completing your online application select the first bulleted item to indicate you are eligible as a member of AUSA.
