Next in our “All About” series is Connex’s Hamden branch! The Hamden branch is located at 2100 Dixwell Avenue, right in the Hamden Plaza. The Hamden branch says they strive daily to meet the members’ needs and work as a team to make branch operations run smoothly. Hamden also makes an effort to know everyone by their first names.
“The Hamden staff is a very diverse family of individuals that work collectively to accomplish the mission of the credit union.” – Talana M. – Service Coordinator at Hamden
Here’s the low down on when the Hamden branch sees its busiest flow of members. Employee feedback lists Monday, Thursday and Friday afternoons, and Saturday as having a busy flow.
Since the Hamden branch is located in the Hamden Plaza, there is an abundance of stores and shops. These stores are a huge convenience and include ShopRite, Hallmark, DAVA, Panera Bread, Dress Barn, a nail salon, AT&T Store, Marshalls, and word on the street is that a FroYo is coming!
How does the coin donation process work?
Connex has a total of four coin counting machines in Hamden, Guilford, North Haven, and Wallingford. The machines have a small fee of 5% to Connex members and 7% to non-members. The fees collected are then donated to local community non-profits each quarter. Each organization is encouraged to get their supporters to cash in their change. The more who participate, the more money that can be raised for the community!
Why do CD rates seem low?
Due to the economic climate and policies put in place by the Federal Reserve, CD rates at many institutions have taken a hit. As the Unbank, Connex has other opportunities to earn more on your money! The Unbank Checking account offers 1.25% APY (as of 06/01/2012). Another option is scheduling a no-cost, no-obligation consultation with MEMBERS Financial Service Representative Pat Piccirilli (firstname.lastname@example.org, Phone: 203.603.5735). Find out more about MEMBERS Services.
Where are Connex ATMs located?
Connex has ATMs at all of our branches and members have surcharge-free access to over 40,000 Allpoint Network ATMs. There are over 400 Allpoint ATMs in Connecticut alone! Go to www.allpointnetwork.com to find an ATM near you.
