Credit Application FAQs

Yes. Because we are a member-owned credit union, you must be a member in order to have a loan with us. However, joining is fast and easy. 

To simplify things for you, this application also includes a PSECU membership request.

If you apply for a credit card online or by phone, we may give you an answer within a few minutes. However, we sometimes need extra information before we can make a decision. 

Due to more complex information-gathering requirements for personal loans and home equity loans/lines of credit, expect to be notified within several days.

Yes! A co-applicant, if applicable, must apply with you. We’ll need current identification, and income and contact information for both of you. 

If you want to add an authorized user, you can do that, too. An authorized user is someone whom you allow to use your credit card account but who isn’t a legal account owner .

Keep in mind that in order to add an authorized user to your credit card account, you need to be the primary cardholder. In the case of a business credit card, your company’s account manager can also be an authorized user.

Once you’re approved, your card should arrive by mail in 7 to 10 business days.
