New Bedford Credit Union is a community based credit union which
seeks to maintain its independence by providing its members with the
best service possible within its resources and through a wide range
of products. It will attempt to assist members to achieve financial
success by offering advice, paying the highest rates possible on
shares, and charging the least on its loan products, consistent with
safe and sound operating practices and its Strategic Plan.
New Bedford Credit Union was started by a group of city workers in
1932. It was located in a small room on the second floor of the
central fire station. Membership was only open to city of New
Bedford employees and their immediate family members. At that time
members were limited to $5 in deposits per week.
Today the New Bedford Credit Union has grown dramatically. The Main
Office is located across the street from the fire station at 1150
Purchase Street in New Bedford. There is also a branch in the North
End of New Bedford at 120 Dawson Street. The credit union has over
30 employees and has topped $100 Million in assets. Membership is
now open to anyone living or working in the Greater New Bedford
area. Through the years while many aspects of the credit union have
changed, the personalized service remains the same. Members are
called by name and are treated more like a friend than just a
As the credit union has grown it has been able to offer many
different products and services. The credit union has gone from
offering savings accounts and small loans to now offering products
and services to fit anyone at any stage of life. Some of the loans
we offer are mortgages, fixed and variable rate home equity loans,
personal loans, new and used car loans, and a VISA card. We also
