Credit Union Eligibility
NCCC has partnerships with credit unions in North Carolina in an effort to give our members with an interest in promoting consumer protection in North Carolina an option for low-cost financial services with great customer service.
All credits unions have their own unique qualifications for membership. Membership in NCCC does not guarantee that you will be accepted for membership in any partner credit union.
Contact a partner credit union directly to apply for credit union membership. Members can learn more about credit union eligibility and print an eligibility confirmation in the Member Center.Current Partners & Rates
Auto Recall Alerts
There are so many recalls issued. We help you stay on top of them!
Register your vehicles in your account and we'll notify you each time a recall is issued.
We are always up to date on the latest recalls. When we get notice of a recall, we check all member vehicles for potential matches. If your vehicle is involved in the recall campaign, we will notify you with details.
We also verify with the manufacturer each month whether older or as yet unannounced recalls exist for your vehicles.More Info
