The Prestige Program is designed to serve the lifestyle and financial needs of our members 55 years and older. You might be over 55, but you've still got a lot of living to do. Spirit of Alaska respects and recognizes your life experiences and wisdom.
All Spirit of Alaska Federal Credit Union members 55 and older are eligible to join Prestige program. See below for more info.
The Prestige Program was developed to provide a social outlet for our senior members and its success depends on your involvement. We need more members, more deposits, and more engagement from you. Please consider bringing a non-member friend.
