Join Cabrillo as a USBP agent via FORBPO
Cabrillo Credit Union was founded in 1955 as Border Federal Credit Union to serve the financial needs of Border Patrol agents and their families in San Diego - we still do that, but now we offer our services to agents and their families outside California. We’ve partnered with the Fraternal Order of Retired Border Patrol Officers (FORBPO) as a way for agents to join Cabrillo and enjoy all the benefits of credit union membership – no matter where you live. If you’ve worked for the Border Patrol for at least three years, you can join FORBPO and become a member of Cabrillo Credit Union. USBP agents in San Diego and Imperial Counties already qualify for membership with Cabrillo as they always have.
A few reasons USBP agents think Cabrillo is 10-8
That’s right, you get paid on Friday at Cabrillo. Other agents receive their payroll on Mondays, but when there are birthday parties, travel plans or general weekend fun, waiting until Monday doesn’t make sense. That’s why we post your payroll early.
When natural disasters or government furloughs keep you from receiving your payroll deposit, that’s when PAL (Payroll Assurance Loan) kicks in. Designed exclusively for our USBP members, it’s a 0% interest loan up to the amount of your last direct deposit (or a max. of $2,500) to cover you until you do get paid – then your loan is automatically paid off. The best part – it’s one of the free benefits of membership, so register today so you'll be ready.

Shared Branches – Cabrillo is a member of the Shared Branch Network (2,500 nationwide), which means you can walk into other Shared Branch affiliated credit unions nationwide to make deposits and withdrawals at their teller windows. Just tell them you’re a Cabrillo member and they can link directly to your account for transactions.
