How To Join

It's easy to become a California Coast member and start saving time and money. For the fastest service, click on our Online Membership Application button below. You may also print out the membership application and bring it in to your nearest branch location or call us at
(877) 495-1600 to set up your account.

When you visit a branch to open your account, please remember to bring your U.S. Government-issued identification, and that an initial savings account and $5 for a one-time membership fee are required. If you'd like to add someone to your account, this joint member would also need to bring their U.S. Government-issued identification into the branch.


Everyone who lives or works in San Diego or Riverside Counties can join. If you live or work outside of these counties, but are a California resident, you may qualify by joining the California State PTA.

A one-time $5 membership fee and a savings account are required to become a California Coast member, giving you access to all the benefits of membership!
