Membership FAQs

The sooner you move over to ALEC, the more you can begin to save. To streamline the process and make it easier for you, we’ve put together an ALEC Switch Kit. Our Switch Kit is an extremely helpful way to put your accounts and recurring services in order, notify your other financial institution(s) and track your changes.

We’re making it even easier to join ALEC.
