Three Ways to Join!
Since Tampa Bay Federal is a credit union, new members need to qualify to join, but don't worry! Qualifying is easy! We have three ways you can join:
1. You're an employee of a company who is affiliated with us. These companies are called Select Employee Groups or SEGs (click for a complete list). If your company is not listed, ask your HR or Benefits Department to become a SEG of Tampa Bay Federal. That way all of your coworkers can join, too!
2. You have an immediate family member who is a Tampa Bay Federal member already. We just need your family member's name and you're in!
3. You join our Prime Time Club for a low one-time, non-refundable fee of $5. Ask us how!
