Welcoming new Pennsylvania credit union members

We want you to be part of Ardent Credit Union. If you live, work, worship, volunteer or go to school in Philadelphia, Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery counties, you are eligible.

Eligibility for relatives and household members

You're also eligible to join if you're a relative of a current Ardent member, including parent, sibling, grandparent, spouse, child, grandchild, stepparent, stepchild or stepsibling. Additionally, household members are eligible to join. That means any person sharing a residence as part of a single-family unit, including domestic partners and others who live together as part of a family unit. An individual may be considered to be living in the same household although he or she is temporarily absent from the residence, such as children in college or the military.

Do right by your employees. And at no additional cost to you, provide Ardent's valuable resources to your team

You pride yourself on running a company that stands out in a crowd. So, here's how you can become even more distinctive without lifting a finger or spending a dime. If your company is headquartered in Philadelphia, Bucks, Chester, Delaware, or Montgomery county, you are eligible to sign up and become an Ardent Business Partner and your employees can become Ardent members – with complete access to the credit union’s full suite of products and services that are designed to help them meet their financial goals.

Ardent membership enhances your benefits package, which improves your recruiting initiatives when seeking talented professionals. Start today by filling out our Business Partner inquiry form.

*Important information about procedures for opening a new account:

As required by the USA Patriot Act of 2001, which requires Ardent Credit Union to help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Ardent Credit Union must obtain basic identifying information from you and verify that information when you open a new account.

This means Ardent Credit Union staff will ask you for some basic information such as your name, address, date of birth and other information designed to help us identify you. Ardent Credit Union staff may also ask to see documents identifying you too such as a driver's license, passport or some other government-issued document. Ardent Credit Union appreciates your patience and understanding as we all do our part in complying with the new account identification procedures required by the federal USA Patriot Act of 2001.
