Better Together:

Bringing You More From Your Credit Union

On behalf of the Board of Directors of First Bristol Federal Credit Union, we are excited to share important news. As part of our commitment to bring you more value, products and services from your credit union, your Board of Directors has unanimously agreed to pursue a cooperative partnership with Nutmeg State Financial Credit Union.

For more than 88 years, First Bristol has been here for the sole benefit of serving you, our member-owners. We look forward to taking this next step of partnering with another Connecticut credit union that shares our values and member service commitment with one very clear and simple goal:  To better serve you and your financial needs.


Founded in 1936, Nutmeg is a local Connecticut credit union offering multiple branches, industry-leading technology, and a comprehensive suite of financial products and services. This merger is a unique opportunity to partner with one of the strongest credit unions in the state, ensuring safety and security for your accounts with the same personalized service.

More Value From Your Credit Union

Together, we will remain focused on continuing our heritage, member relationships, and community programs while bringing you much more from your credit union.

  • Our branches will remain open
  • Expanded Call Center hours
  • New low-rate loan options
  • Full-Service Business Banking & Lending programs
  • Financial Planning & Insurance
  • New CT branches PLUS 30,000+ fee-free ATMs
  • Higher deposit rates
  • Credit cards with loyalty program benefits
  • New Checking options with cash back & ATM fee rebates
  • Health Savings Accounts

And rest assured, your accounts will continue to be federally insured through the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund, a U.S. Government Agency, to at least $250,000 – just as they are today.

What’s Next?

Following regulatory approval, we will ask members to vote on our partnership -- and we hope you support this opportunity. It will be business as usual for the time being without any changes while we go through the approval process. We will keep you updated about our progress and what it means to you in the coming months.
