California Coast Credit Union allows applicants to open a personal checking or savings account using its online application center at CalCoastCu.org. Visiting a branch location is an alternate way to open an account with California Coast.
The online application process begins by establishing an applicant's eligibility and asking him to acknowledge California Coast's Terms and Conditions disclosure. In the next step, the applicant must fill in his personal information and name an account beneficiary. The final steps include funding the account and reviewing the application before it is submitted. California Coast Credit Union then determines whether the applicant qualifies.
After an account is established, the new customer gains access to online banking, mobile banking and eAlert features. This credit union also offers a smartphone app to help customers handle banking transactions on the go, including mobile check deposits and bill pay. Another feature available through the credit union's mobile banking platform is graphical representation of the customer's monthly expenses and budget.
Other financial products and services offered through California Coast Credit Union include home and auto loans, credit cards, insurance products and personal and business loans. Financial calculators, financial workshop enrollment information and financial advice are other features included on the website.
