Who can join PSECU

PSECU is a financial cooperative, meaning you must be eligible to become a member. We make that easy by offering many ways to be eligible.

More than 1,000 employers headquartered in PA offer PSECU membership as a benefit.

Qualifying employers include:

  • PA state or local governments
  • Municipalities and school districts
  • Select Employee Groups (SEGS)

You reside with, or have a relative who is a PSECU member.

Eligible relatives include:

  • Parent, stepparent, or grandparent
  • Spouse or household member
  • Sibling or stepsibling
  • Children or grandchildren (including adoptive relationships and stepchildren)

You have a relationship with one of the many PA colleges or universities we work with.

Qualifying scenarios include:

  • Currently attending
  • Graduated
  • Currently working at a PA college or university
  • Attended one or more semesters

Don’t meet the criteria above?

Don’t worry. You can still join PSECU by becoming a member of the Pennsylvania Recreation and Park Society (PRPS). PRPS Friend membership is a one-time fee of $20, but PSECU will cover $10 when you open your PSECU account online.

Get up to $300 and more when you join and meet promotional requirements.
