This was the first time I had purchased a vehicle without going through a dealer for financing. When I went to the Credit Union I was seen immediately by the Loan Department. The Loan Officer was very knowledgeable. I was given a list of documents to gather and was promptly taken care of when I returned with them. My wife will be contacting your office about refinancing her student loans.

SFCU is headquartered in Somerset, MA. Its birth took place in 1936 at Panneton’s Drug Store. The community of farmers and working people came together and founded Somerset’s first financial institution, the “Somerset Community Credit Union.” Since banks of the day would lend only to property owners, the new credit union expanded access by loaning money to people based on their good character and proof of steady employment. The financial institution was later renamed “Somerset Federal Credit Union,” and was one of the first credit unions in Massachusetts to own and operate its own building at 1275 County Street.
Now headquartered at 740 County Street in Somerset, SFCU is proud to have more than 12,000 members and over $202 million in assets. Under the leadership of a member elected board of directors, and dedicated senior management team, SFCU continues to look towards the future by providing banking solutions for each generation we serve.
Both credit unions performed their due diligence while obtaining regulatory approval from the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA). Once regulatory approval was received, a special meeting took place on Tuesday, November 1st at St. Dominic’s Federal Credit Union.
St. Dominic’s Federal Credit Union team members will retain employment and nearly everyone will maintain the same or similar role. In fact, a merger creates a tremendous amount of opportunity for existing employees to expand their career options in the future. SFCU team members will also retain employment.

Our friend mentioned how great SFCU was to work with. The staff makes you feel welcome. Working with the mortgage team was great and very helpful.
I sincerely appreciate the personalized experience we receive from all of the staff at SFCU, whether it be the person greeting you at the front door, the tellers, the staff that helps with notarizations, mortgages or wire transfers. I have dealt with all of these areas at the Credit Union and have always been assisted in a timely, friendly and helpful manner. It is by far the best bank/credit union I do and have ever done business with.
Our Money Management Officer, Kassandra, was great to work with. I do not think she could do better.
