HARTFORD MUNICIPAL EMPLOYEES’ FEDERAL CREDIT UNION EXPANDING; WILL OPEN NEW BRANCH IN THE NORTH END

(March 31, 2015) Today, Mayor Pedro E. Segarra and City Treasurer Adam M. Cloud announced that the Hartford Municipal Employees’ Federal Credit Union (EFCU) is expanding its membership and will open a new branch in the North End, an area with limited banking options. The National Credit Union Association has approved the Hartford Municipal EFCU’s charter expansion, allowing it to accept members who live, work, worship or attend school in the Greater Hartford area. The new credit union branch, located at 2775 Main Street, has an ATM that is currently available for use. The building is scheduled to open June 1, 2015.

“I want to thank Treasurer Cloud and our partners at the credit union for bringing banking services to an area of Hartford that is underserved,” said Mayor Segarra. “I look forward to visiting the new branch when it opens.”

"Essential services like banking are vital to the residents of this city, especially those who have committed to stay within our city. I am pleased to have had the opportunity to partner with the credit union to ensure that banking services remain in the northeast neighborhood of Hartford,” said Treasurer Cloud.

"This is a very special year for us. Not only is it the 65th anniversary of Hartford Municipal Employees’ Federal Credit Union, but we are opening up a new branch and are expanding our membership,” said Marco Signorello, CEO of the Hartford Municipal EFCU. “The credit union would like to thank our membership, the City of Hartford and the Connecticut Credit Union League. Without their support the new branch and expansion would not have been possible. We owe our growing success to them."

U.S. Senator Chris Murphy, who has vocally supported access to banking for North End residents, said he is “glad that the Hartford Municipal Employees’ Federal Credit Union is stepping up to fill the banking gap in Hartford's North End. Everyone in Connecticut should have access to real banking services, not just check-cashing or payday lenders that can trap people in a vicious cycle of going into debt to pay off debt."

The Hartford Municipal EFCU has three locations in Hartford and one in East Hartford. The credit union currently serves 7,400 members who work for the City of Hartford, Hartford Housing Authority, Community Renewal Team, Connecticut Natural Gas, and XL Center, in addition to other select employee groups and their families.
