Western CT & SoundView: Growing Stronger Together with a Common Goal!

Our Community is Growing to be a More Efficient Organization

Our credit union community is growing with the common goal of continuing to deliver excellent service and expand upon the products and services offered to our members. The Western CT members have voted to approve the merger with SoundView Financial Credit Union so that we may combine our resources and our expertise to be a stronger and more efficient organization.

In addition to the member vote being approved, we have received all the necessary regulatory approvals to formally merge into SoundView Financial Credit Union. We will now operate as “Western CT a branch of SoundView Financial Credit Union” as we work through the transition of combining operations. You have the commitment of our Board of Directors and Management for a smooth and seamless transition. If at anytime you want to communicate with our management team, please reach out by phone or email to our Member Care Team and they will connect you with someone. We are dedicated to listening to your input and ensuring the needs of our members are being met.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to us with any questions you have. You can reach us by phone at 203.791.9399 or by email at
