Are you eligible for membership at CommStar Credit Union?
Many people think only employees of a certain company or industry can be a member of a credit union… But did you know CommStar Credit Union is a community credit union? That means membership is open to anyone who:
- Lives in Lorain County
- Works in Lorain County
- Worships in Lorain County
- Attends school in Lorain County
Additional membership eligibility includes:
- Employees of a company participating in CommStar’s CU@Work program

We are proud to partner with many companies, cities and other local establishments for our CU@Work program. CU@Work offers many great benefits to the employees of participating establishments. If you qualify, please select the CU@Work option when you open your account online. A Member Service Representative will follow up with you once your application is complete to collect some additional information to help you take advantage of this program’s benefits. If you open your account in person at one of our branches, please either bring your CU@Work card (available in your employer’s HR office), or mention your employer.
Member Referral Program
