Membership

How Do I Qualify for Membership?

Field of Membership - From its beginning, Illinois Educators Credit Union was founded as a closed field of membership for the benefit of those who work in the education field as well as their families. Our membership field continues to this day to benefit the same core group as described within our Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws and approved by the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation, however, we have expanded to serve a much broader range of people living and working in Sangamon and surrounding counties.

Membership is open to any person affiliated with the education community, including employees, retired employees, current students and alumni of any school in Sangamon or Menard County Illinois, including the districts of: Athens, Auburn, Ball Chatham, Carlinville, Greenview, New Berlin, Pawnee, Pleasant Plains, Riverton, Rochester, Tri-City, Williamsville-Sherman, Winchester, Waverly, Lincoln Land Community College, the University of Illinois in Springfield, Robert Morris University and Benedictine University. Those employed by Horace Mann Companies, Illinois Education Association (IEA/NEA) or subsidiaries and affiliates of IEA/NEA, and those in the immediate family of current members also qualify for membership.

Our members truly are the future of our Credit Union. If for any reason an individual leaves the employer or college/university, or has a family separation, the member remains eligible for membership and may continue to enjoy the full benefits of being an Illinois Educators Credit Union member (once a member, always a member).
