The Credit Union Difference

A credit union is different than a bank. In fact, we think that we’re better. Better for your finances, better for your community… just better. Why? Because the credo of a credit union has been and will always be “people helping people”. With a credit union, we don’t have shareholders calling the shots. We aren’t beholden to anyone but our membership—because when you’re a member of our credit union, you’re part owner of the organization and have a direct impact on the direction we take. We also have a member-elected Board of Directors that makes every decision with your best interest in mind.

And, since credit unions are non-profits, all the earnings are returned to you in the form of lower fees, lower rates, and high interest yields.

And! Your money is safe because it’s insured up to $250,000 by the National Credit Union Administration, or NCUA—a special organization just for Credit Unions.

This short video will explain all the benefits to being a part of your local Connecticut credit union.


At GE Credit Union, we all share a common bond with one another, just like a family. Because our credit union isn’t open to the public (well in some areas we are!), our members are all employees of different Select Employment Groups, or SEGs.

With only a $25 initial deposit in a Share Account, you or any of your immediate family can become a member. And, once you’re a member, you’re one for life—no matter where you work or relocate. All you have to do is maintain a $25 balance.

About Us

GE Credit Union was established in 1940 when a group of General Electric employees pooled their money to start a small, but dedicated credit union called General Electric Conduit and Wire Credit Union. They made their newly formed credit union’s purpose to provide a safe and reliable place for General Electric’s Code Wire Department’s employees and their immediate family members to put their hard earned money. It was a success and by the end of the first year, they had 123 members—and things grew from there.

By 1985, the Credit Union changed its name to General Electric Employees Federal Credit Union and by the end of that decade; they met their 15 thousand member mark with just over 22 million in assets.

Finally, in 2014, our name was changed again—to what you know us as—GE Credit Union.

Over the years, there have been lots of changes. But the original intent and drive behind the mission has remained the same. To provide a safe, reliable place for you to keep your hard earned money, that offers you the most benefits possible, and provides stellar member-focused service – all to help you achieve your financial dreams.

Because it’s your money. Your dreams. And our commitment.
