What You Should Know About Listerhill's New Associational Membership Option

A new Listerhill membership option is now available and opens up a host of financial features and benefits to folks outside of our area

We’ve got some exciting news! Listerhill is currently working with the Alabama Consumer Council (a chapter of the American Consumer Council) and Athens Alumni Association to establish a new associational membership option. This move allows for residents of other qualifying states (see the list here) to join Listerhill!

Read on to learn the basics of this new membership option.

New Listerhill Membership Option Features

Membership at Listerhill is opening up to new folks, and we couldn’t be more excited to share more of the great savings options designed just for our members. While membership was already open to those who lived, owned property or worked in certain counties in Tennessee and Alabama, it’s no longer restricted only to those who live in qualifying counties.

Now, if you belong to either the Alabama Consumer Council or the Athens Alumni Association in a qualifying state, you can become a member. Please note that you must reside in Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, or Tennessee if you’re interested in becoming a Listerhill member by joining either association.

Even better, when you join either association, Listerhill will foot the bill for your first year of membership dues.

About the Alabama Consumer Council

The American Consumer Council is a non-profit consumer education organization. As a state branch, the Alabama Consumer Council deals primarily with financial education and keeping our members informed about various product recalls.

About the Athens Alumni Association

The Athens Alumni Association is open to alumni of Athens State University. A board of directors composed of alumni makes a variety of decisions about supporting the university, its students, and various on-campus effects. Support to the university comes in the form of scholarships and on-campus projects.

Benefits of Listerhill Membership

When you join Listerhill, you’re not simply opening an account at another financial institution. You’re joining a community.

As a member-owned nonprofit, Listerhill doesn’t exist to make money for faraway investors or shareholders. Instead, they’re here for the people who work, attend school, own property, and essentially live their lives in the same place where they keep their hard-earned money. Our profits come right back to you, in the form of lower interest rates on loans and higher dividends on savings accounts and CDs.

And it doesn’t stop with money. We’re proud to give back to the community in the form of sponsorships and scholarships for schools and volunteerism. Additionally, we are proud to partner and sponsor local businesses and organizations.

With so many things uncertain, the old saying from “The Wizard of Oz” is true: “There’s no place like home.” The community-oriented nature of credit unions means you enjoy the luxury of a financial institution that cares about you as an individual, that takes the time to get to know you, look at your financial situation, and help you figure out the best way to get where you want to be.

Whether you live, work, or own property in Huntsville, Madison County, Birmingham, or Gulf Shores, or any of the other localities that are eligible for membership, if you are looking for another credit union option, Listerhill is here for you.

Why should we keep something this good to ourselves?

This is it. This is your opportunity to take advantage of Listerhill’s personalized member service and competitive rates by joining an approved association at no cost to you for the first year. Membership is no longer restricted to people with connections to certain places.

Money management shouldn’t simply be another chore, or worse, something you try not to think about. Listerhill prides itself on its financial education tools and resources for members. We offer a variety of Financial Wellness programs like:

  • Workshops at your workplace

  • Financial literacy in the classroom at high schools and colleges

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What if I get an error message when I try to enroll an email address or U.S. mobile number?

    Your email address or U.S. mobile phone number may already be enrolled with Zelle® at another bank or credit union. Call our member support team at 256.383.9204 and ask them to move your email address or U.S. mobile phone number to your financial institution so you can use it for Zelle®.

    Once customer support moves your email address or U.S. mobile phone number, it will be connected to your bank account so you can start sending and receiving money with Zelle® through your Listerhill Credit Union banking app and online banking. Please call our member support team at 256.383.9204 for help.

  • Is my information secure?

    Keeping your money and information safe is a top priority for Listerhill Credit Union. When you use Zelle® within our mobile app or online banking, your information is protected with the same technology we use to keep your bank account safe.

  • I'm unsure about using Zelle® to pay someone I don't know. What should I do?

    If you don't know the person, or aren't sure you will get what you paid for (for example, items bought from an online bidding or sales site), you should not use Zelle® for these types of transactions.

    These transactions are potentially high risk (just like sending cash to a person you don't know is high risk). Neither Listerhill Credit Union nor Zelle® offers a protection program for any authorized payments made with Zelle® – for example, if you do not receive the item you paid for or the item is not as described or as you expected.

  • Will the person I send money to be notified?

    Yes! They will receive a notification via email or text message.

  • How long does it take to receive money with Zelle®?

    Money sent with Zelle® is typically available to an enrolled recipient within minutes.3

    If you send money to someone who isn't enrolled with Zelle®, they will receive a notification prompting them to enroll. After enrollment, the money will be available directly in your recipient's account, typically within minutes.3

    If your payment is pending, we recommend confirming that the person you sent money to has enrolled with Zelle® and that you entered the correct email address or U.S. mobile phone number.

    If you're waiting to receive money, you should check to see if you've received a payment notification via email or text message. If you haven't received a payment notification, we recommend following up with the sender to confirm they entered the correct email address or U.S. mobile phone number.
