How do I open a Companion Account?

To open a Companion Account, you must be a current member of Stanford Federal Credit Union. If you are not a member and would like to open a Companion Account, please first open a checking or savings account to become a member. Your Companion Account must be partnered with a Certificate, Money Market or Savings Account with the same or higher balance.

 

How It Works

  • Step 1 Log into Online or Mobile Banking to open a high-rate Stanford FCU Certificate with as little as $1,000 (or use an existing Certificate)
  • Step 2 Once you have a Certificate, Money Market or Savings Account, you will see the option to open a Companion Account in Online or Mobile Banking under Open & Apply

Remember that your Companion Account will only earn interest if the balance is the same or lower than the Certificate, Money Market or Savings Account that you partnered it with.
