Secured Credit Card FAQs

You will need to be at least 18 years of age, have a Social Security number, U.S. address and a membership savings account with Community First Credit Union.

To determine if you qualify for an account, we review the information that you provide, information in your credit report, as well as other information we may have about your creditworthiness.
By using credit responsibly across all your credit cards and loans, including at Community First Credit Union and others, you may qualify to convert to an unsecured card. We review your credit card account periodically to see if you qualify.
If you pay your balance in full and close your credit card account, we'll release your security deposit. We'll also return your security deposit if your card is converted to an unsecured card after review.
