Address Requirements

International members can use a temporary address to open an account, making it easier than ever to get started with JHFCU as soon as you arrive!

If your account is opened with a temporary address, you will have three months succeeding open date to provide verification of your permanent address. Make sure to provide this information to prevent your account from premature closure before you’re able to truly take advantage of what JHFCU has to offer.

Ready to get started with JHFCU? We can’t wait for you to join our cooperative and become a valued member of our global community!
