Business accounts are eligible if their account uses an Employer Identification Number, not a social security number that is already linked to another Educators Credit Union account.

An account is not in good standing if its checking account has been negative for more than 35 days or a loan is overdue for payment. You can earn one monthly reward per service listed.
