As the Unbank, Connex Credit Union is one of Connecticut’s largest credit unions serving more than 47,000 members at 7 branches throughout greater New Haven. Headquartered in North Haven, Connecticut, Connex is a full-service member-owned credit union that offers members a full range of financial services and products, including savings and loans, Unbank Checking, Smart Score credit score range, free online and mobile banking, and more. Membership is open to anyone who lives, works, attends school or worships in New Haven, Hartford, Middlesex or Fairfield Counties. It’s time to Unbank!
Connex Credit Union has been active in the community since 1940, when it was chartered to serve SNET employees and their families in the greater New Haven area. At that time, the credit union was known as New Haven Telephone Employees Federal Credit Union. Through the mid-1990s, we expanded our affiliation to include more than 450 companies and organizations. Until recently, only employees of these select organizations and their families were eligible to join.
In December 2002, our credit union received approval to convert from a federal to a community-based state charter. This means that anyone who lives, works, worships or attends school in New Haven, Hartford or Middlesex Counties is now eligible to join.
On June 16, 2003, Southern New England Financial Credit Union (SNEFCU) officially changed its name to Connex (pronounced “Connects”) Credit Union to reflect the conversion to a community-based, state chartered credit union. The name change made it clear to Connecticut residents that they no longer had to be employed by SNET in order to become a member. The name also conveys our ongoing commitment to connect with new members, while maintaining our strong connections with current members. The Connex name differentiates us from other financial institutions, while reinforcing our local roots (Conn is the first four letters of Connex and Connecticut.)
Although the name has changed, Connex Credit Union will continue to serve its members as a trusted provider of competitively priced financial products and services. Connex has six conveniently located branches in New Haven, North Haven, Hamden, Guilford, Orange, and Wallingford. Connex offers free Online Banking and Mobile Banking, as well as low fees and very competitive rates on loans, mortgages and deposit products.
