Eligibility

Before you begin
Applying for an account has never been easier! You’re just a few short steps away from opening a new account.
During the process, you’ll be asked to:

  • Enter your legal name on the application

  • Select which products and related services you wish to apply for

  • Fill out the online application

  • Review and accept our account disclosures

  • Answer a few brief questions that help us verify your identity and protect your information

  • Choose how you’d like to initially fund your account. (You can mail a check, transfer from an existing Sunmark account, transfer from another bank or credit union account, or use a debit/credit card.)

Information you will need during the application process
To make this process faster and easier, please have the following information handy:

  • Social Security Number for applicant (and co-applicant, if any)

  • A valid U.S. issued government picture ID, such as a driver’s license for applicant (and co-applicant, if any)

  • Information for funding your new account (a checkbook, account number from another financial institution, or a debit/credit card)

For your protection, this system is protected with enhanced security. During the application process, you will be asked questions about loans or accounts you currently hold that only you should know the answers to. This will help us validate your identity. You may wish to have this information handy during the application process as well.

Important Information About Procedures for Opening a New Account
To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. What this means for you: When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver's license or other identifying documents.

Membership Eligibility

Because Sunmark is a credit union, you have to meet a basic eligibility requirement to bank with us. You can bank with Sunmark if:

  • You live, work, worship, attend school, own a business, or volunteer in Schenectady, Albany, Saratoga, Rensselaer, Montgomery, Schoharie, Warren, Fulton, Columbia, Greene, Dutchess, Putnam, Rockland and Westchester Counties.

  • You’re employed by one of Sunmark’s Community Business Partners

  • You are an immediate family member of someone who already banks with Sunmark or who is eligible to have a Sunmark account

Online Service eSign Disclosure and Consent

Opening a Sunmark Membership Plan, secondary suffix or loan account means you agree to receive electronic communications in connection with these accounts and services. By selecting "I have read, understand, and agree to Sunmark Credit Union’s Online Service eSign Disclosure and Consent" you consent to receive all disclosures and communications regarding products and services electronically; these communications are considered “in writing.” These include, but are not limited to, our account agreements and amendments thereto, all service, product and loan disclosures, notices, responses to claims, service history and transaction records, online banking disclosures and agreements, privacy policies, and all legal, regulatory and other communications related to your account.

You may withdraw consent at any time by emailing us at memberservice@sunmark.org or calling us at 866-SUNMARK (866-786-6275).

We will not send you a paper copy of any communication, unless you withdraw consent or we otherwise deem it appropriate to do so.
