MEMBER BASICS: Joint vs. Single Membership
Posted on October 31st, 2019
People who are served by First Electric Cooperative can have a joint or single membership.
A single membership lists one name on the account and bill. Only that person will be able to inquire about specific account information or make changes to his or her service. In addition, only the person listed may vote in the cooperative’s annual election. A joint membership is two persons who are married to each other. Both people may inquire about account information or make changes to the service. Although only one vote is allowed per membership, either may cast the vote.
Members who would like to add or remove a person from their account may call 800-489-7405 during regular business hours. A member service representative will be able to explain what form and document(s) are needed to make the change.
